The norwegian masters of all things decadent, taboo and fun – Pirate Love – has morphed into the stylized beast, PRTLVX. 2016 will see the return of ROCK as a transcendent pathway to individual POWER and SATISFACTION on all levels through the release of the band’s third album and their first on new label Fysisk Format.
Pirate Love released their first record in 2007, a 7 inch vinyl featuring the song “Laughing Gas”, which received heavy rotation on rock radio and whose video got an instant MTV Europe “A” listing. Received the Alarm Award’s nomination for “Best Video of the Year 2007”.
The EP “Death Surf Negro Spirituals (Kong Tiki Records, 2007) was released later the same year, followed by the debut longplayer “ Black Vodoun Space Blues” (Kong Tiki Records, 2008). The band toured Norway and played most of Norway’s major festivals in 2008, and toured Europe in 2009, finishing with Toronto’s NXNE and some New York City club dates. The band played SXSW in 2010 and combined that with a U.S east coast tour.
Their second album “Narco Lux High School” (Kong Tiki Records, 2011) was released in the fall of 2011 and was hailed as “one of the best albums of the Year” by both leading newspaper “Aftenposten” and music magazine “Natt og Dag”.
PRTLVX’s first album under their new name will be out on Fysisk Format 05.05.2017
