Oh wow! With their brand new album ‘No Grave But The Sea’, out now on Napalm Records, heavy metal pirates ALESTORM have hit several official album charts!
“I have an inflatable kayak. Does that count? That’s my pirate vessel of choice.” Amb Pirate chats with Christopher Bowes of Alestorm @ Vans Warped Tour 08/04/2017 Shoreline Amphitheater – Mountain View, CA
This unstoppable party machine where the rum flows freely and who once defined their own music as “Stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing treasure”, has now reached their highest chart positions to date and prove, that they belong to the TOP of the most acclaimed and finest heavy metal bands the worldwide scene has to offer.
Says the band:
“For an awful band like Alestorm, that’s incredibly impressive, and it’s higher than anything we’ve ever achieved before! Thank you to everyone who bought an album and made this possible!”
And they promise: “Oh yeah, the coolest thing about this is, we charted higher than the new Shakira album, and she’s an international pop sensation! Does this mean we’ll be doing the theme tune for the next FIFA World Cup? Maybe. Does this mean we’ll dress in leather bikinis and record a cover of “Whenever, Wherever”? Definitely.”
The Dread Crew of Oddwood‘s mighty landlocked Lawful Evil North American tour will see the band keelhauling audiences with this grog-soaked barrage in the flesh for thirty-three days between August 12th and September 30th. The itinerary is mixed with a wide array of standard music venues as well as Renaissance Faires. The four Canadian gigs and two in Florida will also see the outfit joined by Wilderun, and the opening show in Los Angeles on August 12th will include a special one-off West Coast set by fellow seafaring cohorts, Swashbuckle.
Declares the outfit’s Stark Cordwain on the upcoming raid, “We are returning to some of our favorite North American cities, armed to the beards with fresh acoustic antics! Lawful Evil is coming for you, so crack open a fine whiskey, get ready to party, and hold onto your butts!”
Gear Gods offers that Lawful Evil is, “A fully acoustic band playing pirate music that isn’t corny or too ren-fair-y – it’s just badass.” Angry Metal Guy commends the band as, “strong songwriters with a knack for hooks and effective time management.” We Love Metal’s praise-filled review includes, “The heaviness is there song after song, and although I’m not a big fan of comparing bands to one another, when it comes to THE DREAD CREW think of Dropkick Murphy’s drunk; kicking the shit out of Alestorm.” Cryptic Rock proclaimed, “Making the audience feel as if they were in the 1500s at a pub filled with rum-drunk pirates, their music was melodic with pounding drums and catchy choruses.” National Rock Review dubbed the record, “an entertainingly fun hour of some of the best folk metal you would ever hear,” and Toilet Ov Hell commends, “The lack of amps and electric instruments only strengthens the band’s throwback sound, allowing all the instruments time to shine.”
