From Wasteland To Wonderland


Hop on board with Celtic Punk pirates PADDY AND THE RATS to crack into their upcoming album From Wasteland to Wonderland, out on April 29, 2022 via Napalm Records. With their 6th full-length the vigorous outfit serves a top-notch pirate party fueled by a heavy dose of Punk, Polka and Folk, turning the world into a giant pub. This Irish influenced sound will assuredly bring up the urge to slam down a beer or two, while swinging happily along arm in arm to the beat! Formed in 2008 by singer and songwriter Paddy, the untamed unit managed to build a respective name within the scene due to a bunch of hard work and extensive touring all over Europe with more than 400 shows including at the world famous Wacken Open Air and the Sziget Festival. For the new album they teamed up once again with producer Zoli Baker. The artwork was designed by Jill Colbert, who also worked with bands like Alestorm, Exodus and Wintersun. With their mix of pub music and punk rock, accompanied by Celtic features, PADDY AND THE RATS welcome the listener into the world of pirates and sailors on their new offering. From Wasteland to Wonderland builds upon a loosening and energetic mood that will transform every gathering into a boisterous pirate ship and is an even more powerful follow up to the predecessor Riot City Outlaws. On those rousing 13 tracks the Hungarians likely to magically pull one stirring song after another out of their pirate hats, featuring a great variation of instruments, like an accordion, a fiddle, a banjo and a bagpipe. The Celtic Punks sail off to exciting adventures with their opener "Wasteland", offering a longingly Duo of mandolin play and vocals accompanied by violin injections. The spirit gets incited with "Ship Will Sale": The rousing track hits like a wild wave and invites the listener to join the party, sway and stomp with them. The full-length pushes forward with "Party like a Pirate", where they delight their shipmates with an eager party hit, riddled with trust and a sweeping sing-along chorus. "Everybody Get Up" offers another power boost and slowly prepares for the end of the adventure, with its punkier and energetic sound. The last stop of the journey with the Celtic punks is "Wonderland". This emotional ballad provides the perfect note to end the album. With Wasteland to Wonderland, PADDY AND THE RATS deliver an overseas adventure that fills every part of the body with its contagious energy and simplistic happiness. 1. SINGLE - EN Pirate gang PADDY AND THE RATS put their first foot forward by showcasing their most vulnerable side, releasing a heartfelt dedication to accordion player Bernie Bellamy (Bern?t Babicsek), who sadly passed away at the start of 2022 - just months before the April release of their upcoming studio album, From Wasteland To Wonderland. The ballad, entitled "After The Rain", celebrates Bellamy with a longing melody accented by violin elements, ensuring that he will sail forever in our hearts. 2
