Power/folk metal outfit, Alestorm are set to return in June with their third album, Back Through Time, which is packed with scurrilous tales of midgets, monkeys and drinking.
Alestorm vocalist and keytarist Christopher Bowes will be the first to tell you that everything worthwhile goes better with a drink. And that remains true with the band’s new record. You’ll wanna get grogged and trash the house while listening.
The band takes their job of revelry and sonic stupidity to new heights on this record, and neither band or fans would want it any other way. Fun is what Alestorm is about…and drinking. Did I mention drinking?
As the band gets set to release Back Through Time and head to the high seas for a North American tour with Kamelot, I caught up with the jovial Bowes for an update on the Alestorm front. We talked of the new album, their latest video, Serbian pornstars, grave digging wankers, and rum-soaked midgets.
