Prague based band Pipes and Pints had a really wild and exciting year this past 12 months which concluded with the release of 4 brand new singles from the new upcoming album. Each single represents diversity of both band and genres in which they walk in easily. ,,Raise our Flag,, started the new era of the band and together with ,,Rebel in my Veins,, did not let old fans doubt that they are still their favorite Pipes. The other single which was a melodic one ,,Dark into the Night,, is influenced a lot by country, versus ,, Karma Killer,, which is influenced by sharp metal and rock and roll. Dark and Karma are both new for Pipes and Pints sound and this shows the beginning of their progress regarding sound and songwriting. Karma Killer is also a symbolic cutting ties of the past. ,,We are taking destiny back in our hands,, says band leader Vojta Kalina (bag pipes).
