Royal Pirates makes their return with “Run Away.”
The band initially had plans to make their comeback this past summer, but due to a severe accident, the bassist James had to undergo surgery and recovery. The accident was serious enough that he had to give up the bass and switch to another instrument, synth/keyboard. Don’t know if he’ll ever be able to play the bass again 😦
The trio have gone through a lot and they decided to feature some of these experiences in this video. Drummer Sooyoon’s mother has been struggling with an illness for a while & he felt that as she has gotten older, she has been drifting away from him. The flower he holds and its scattering petals represents his mother and the feeling of not wanting to lose your loved ones. As for guitarist/vocalist Moonchul, he is seen looking through photos of himself and his older brother, who was the former bassist of the band & has passed away. Moonchul pays tribute to his brother by placing a rose on a bass. Lastly, bassist James is forced to give up the bass due to his injury, so he’s seen smashing a bass into a large shield that bursts into flames.
I think this is a great comeback song and the instrumental breakdown is wild. Definitely glad to see them back.
