"It is my very great pleasure to announce that on January 10th Alestorm will be heading to the studio to record our third album, which we're gonna call 'Back Through Time'.
"It's gonna be an epic adventure through piratical badassery in 11 tracks, with more drunken singalong anthems than you can shake a stick at. There will be songs about midgets. There will be songs about Wisconsin. There will be songs about travelling through time to kill Vikings. And, of course, loads of songs about pirates doing what they do best; kicking your ass and stealing your wenches!
"Lasse Lammert will once again be at the helm of the production, at his LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany. We'll be there for about a month (one week of recording, three weeks of alcohol abuse), and we're hopefully looking at a release in early summer, in time for us to kick your asses with these songs at all the festivals.
"In no particular order, here's the songtitles that we've got penned for the album:
The Sunk'n Norwegian
Shipwrecked (Pure Dead Banjaxed)
Back Through Time
Death Throes Of The Terrorsquid
Scraping The Barrel
"Of course these are all possibly subject to change, if we go crazy in the studio. There will inevitably also be a silly digipak version with a bunch of daft covers as bonus tracks as well, the exact details of which we'll announce at a later date."
