Alestorm have been holed up in a Florida studio these past few weeks but they've escaped now and docked back in Blighty and they've brought treasures back home with them in the form of their fifth full length album titled 'No Grave But The Sea'.

'No Grave But The Sea' will be released on May 26th 2017 on Napalm Records and we have the the cover art as well as the tracklisting, which includes the wonderful sing title 'Fucked With An Anchor', which we can tell instantly and without having yet heard it that it's bound to become an Alestorm classic.

Captain Christopher Bowes told us the following about the new album:

"Oh wow! It's a new Alestorm album! I hope all of you fellow humans and dogs like it; we think it's pretty gosh darn OK!

"It's also our first album to feature our grandiose guitarist Máté Bodor who brings his tasty and delicious solos and rifftacular riffing into the mix.

"This is the place where we would usually tell you this album is darker and heavier than our previous works, but that's probably not true. It is, however, full of epic songs about pirates, drinking, and pseudoscientific cryptogeography. I'm sure y'all will enjoy those things just as much as we do."


Here's the tracklist of 'No Grave But The Sea':

No Grave But The Sea
To The End Of The World
Bar Und Imbiss
Fucked With An Anchor
Pegleg Potion

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
