After three studio albums, a Live DVD, countless live dates and a Village People cover, today the next chapter in the tale of the Scottish Pirate Metallers Alestorm begins!
The band has just arrived at Lasse Lammert's LSD-Studio in Lübeck, Germany to record their 4th full-length album, which will be titled 'Sunset on the Golden Age'.

"This is gonna blow all your expectations as to what an Alestorm album is all about" comments vocalist and keytar player Christopher Bowes. "Over the past couple of years we've been writing non-stop, and we've come up with a ton of badass material. Some of this stuff is the catchiest pirate party anthems you've ever heard, with choruses that'll make you want to raise a pint of rum up high and sing your guts out.
"And for the fans of the epic stuff, we've got some songs that hit the 10-minute mark, with lyrical themes about historical events and crazy mythological madness. It's gonna rule!"
More updates and drunkenness are expected over the coming months, and a release through Napalm Records will happen sometime in the early summer.
This is excellent news, not least because it will give Christopher Bowes something to focus on to take his mind off making Christmas records.
Alestorm have been busy on the road, playing live dates in 22 countries over the past two years, and the DVD 'Live At The End Of The World' was released in November.
