||ALESTORM UNVEIL FIRST DETAILS OF NEW ALBUM 'NO GRAVE BUT THE SEA'
10th March 2017
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':

To The End Of The World
