about

A melancholy collection of songs about smuggling, soldiering, love, loss, and death, with lyrics taken from Rudyard Kipling's 1892 work, Barrack Room Ballads. Kipling sometimes paints an uncomfortably rosy view of empire, but he also shows tenderness, vision, and poignancy.

For the first month of release all profits go Combat Stress, the charity which helps veterans suffering from mental health issues.
