A vast, ye landlubbers! From the deepest darkest depths of eastern Scotland 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! Describing their style as "True Scottish Pirate Metal", Alestorm plays an infectious blend of modern folk and power metal with a unique piratical twist. After forming in 2006 and rapidly gaining a cult following in their local scene, the band signed to Austria's Napalm Records, and released three groundbreaking albums; "Captain Morgan's Revenge" (2008), "Black Sails at Midnight" (2009), and "Back Through Time" (2011).
Now in 2014, hot on the heels of their recent live album "Live at the End of the World", Alestorm are releasing their 4th full length album, entitled "Sunset on the Golden Age". Prepare to have your mind blown with some of the catchiest Pirate Metal anthems you've ever heard, with tales of mythological creatures, epic battles, and swashbuckling action that'll make you want to raise up a pint of rum and sing your heart out.
Dani Evans comments “I'm extremely pleased to be joining the Washburn family and extremely happy to be endorsing the Parallaxe PXS series guitars! With the guitars I've had made, I have found unparalleled craftsmanship and engineering inside and this has helped me improve the way I play and how I enjoy playing live. With such high quality instruments you can really feel the show! I'm looking forward to showcasing my new custom models on our upcoming headline tours in Europe and the UK in September/October!”
