Official Release Dec. 6th, St. Nicholas Day! Comes with immediate digital download of the album!
Embarking on their first ever Christmas album, Scythian releases Christmas Out at Sea, a seafarer’s take on celebrating Christmas at sea in the days of shanties, whaling, sea monsters and squalls. You’ll be taken on a journey from port town pubs to the open seas, with special guests like Boxing Banjo, HoneyDay, Catie Parker Fedoryka, Nolan Ladewski, Stevie Rees and more climbing aboard to join the lads in their musical journey through the Yuletide songs of yore. You’re invited to join them in a venture that is this Christmas album, to sing along as they weave and nest layers of treasured carols within songs that are meant to play out like a musical story from beginning to end.
Inspired by the chorale music of their mother’s choir directing years, who trained at Julliard and sang in Carnegie Hall under Leonard Bernstein, founding brothers Alexander & Danylo Fedoryka, joined by shipmates Ethan Dean & Johnny Rees, bring classic traditional carols through the haunts of traditional pubs and out to sea with them for some salt air and back-breaking work. Join them and climb aboard for a Christmas Out at Sea!
