Ahoy, filthy landlubbers: “Alestorm” has just landed ashore with a brand new single “Treasure Chest Party Quest”, fresh off of their upcoming album “Curse of the Crystal Coconut” – out on May 29 via Napalm Records. Captain Christopher Bowes transports the listener right into another world the “Alestorm” way – with a lot of bloody good rum underlined by a striking melody and a choir full of drunken sea emperors. They make one thing crystal clear: they will come for your treasure chest while partying so hard they probably won’t even remember they stole your riches. An unmistakably catchy chorus will get you hooked immediately, and a little promise on the side: you won’t get this song out of your head for at least a fortnight.
“Treasure Chest Party Quest” is accompanied by an audiovisual created in typical chaotic and colorful “Alestorm” fashion. A wild visual ride through the minds of the “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” that only they could dream up. Track suits, gambling, sportscars and newborn babies galore… they’re just here to have fun! They came to take all your money and party, convince yourself and watch the video below!
“Alestorm” on the new video:
“Oh wow! We tried our very best to make a video that would alienate as many of our fans as possible. I think we succeeded! This song is about giving birth to yourself, selling out, and driving awful Yugoslavian cars. All the classic elements of pirate metal!”
Avast, ye landlubbers! From the deepest darkest depths of the Caribbean comes Alestorm, a drunken band of pirates on an epic quest to drink your beer, steal your rum, and be the greatest damn band that ever did sail the seven seas!
From humble beginnings playing shows to farm animals in a field somewhere in Eastern Scotland, Alestorm have evolved into an international party machine hellbent on conquering album charts and festival stages throughout the world, with their infectious brand of ‘Pirate Metal’ and their dashing good looks.
Somehow they’ve managed to convince hundreds of thousands of people from New Zealand to Argentina to Lithuania and everywhere in between (except Paraguay), that it’s cool to wear a pirate hat and sing stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing ships. So prepare your spleens, because Alestorm are coming to kick ass and chew gum. And they’re all out of ass.
Also, they have a giant inflatable duck. Does your band have a giant inflatable duck? No. I didn’t think so.
