Jumping into Sea of Thieves today? Request a personalised shanty for your stream!

Because every great seafaring adventure should begin with a truly filthy pirate anthem requested via online video platform, Xbox ANZ have organised what they’re calling a “Sing Us A Shanty” service for players jumping into Sea of Thieves today. The service will allow players to request a live song from an actual, honest-to-Poseidon pirate band and, look, who doesn’t want that?

The band, the excellently named Captain Hellfire and the Wretched Bretheren, are a five piece pirate rock outfit from South Australia and will be aggressively blasting shanties at you on a first-come-first-served basis via the Xbox ANZ Mixer, Facebook Live and Twitch channels. Need some amazingly vulgar tunes for your voyage? Hit ’em up.

Requests will be ticketed through Eventbrite and should be live by the time you read this so get a wriggle on, ya scurvy dog. Head over to the Xbox ANZ Facebook page for more details on how to request your shanty.
