The notorious Pirate Kings ALESTORM release their long-awaited long-player Curse Of The Crystal Coconut today via Napalm Records! In addition, they present their latest single, “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” - an homage to pirate life and… probably themselves! Rhythmic guitars, slapping drums and Captain Bowes’ rum-laden vocals weave throughout the song and will have it stuck in your head with the first listen - that’s a promise.
The song is accompanied by an audiovisual, taking you on a trip to Thailand – more specifically, to the studio where the “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” recorded Curse Of The Crystal Coconut. It also features the legendary rubber duck (in a very different way than you might expect), the smashing of a perfectly innocent ukulele and purely crazy pirate madness. See for yourself!
The “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” is back to show all the filthy landlubbers what they’re made of. ALESTORM’s sixth long-player, Curse of the Crystal Coconut, features eleven tracks presented in ALESTORM’s signature unadulterated, chaotic fashion. Adding to that are guest performances from musical greats like Ally Storch of SUBWAY TO SALLY (violin on the entire album) and Captain Yarrface of RUMAHOY!
A must-have, riff-laden anthem at any party, “Treasure Chest Party Quest” takes the listener onto a journey into the depths of the darkest taverns of “Tortuga” and Christopher Bowes’ unique sense of humor. The smashing, lively track “Chomp Chomp”, featuring vocals of Vreth of FINNTROLL, may make you never want to enter the open waters again, but will definitely entice you to dance along with its addictive melodies. “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” is yet another foot-stomping anthem on the album that excels with a catchy rhythm and indelible hook. Be careful to not anger the great pirate Scurvy, or he might just unleash the Curse Of The Crystal Coconut with the brutal riffs of the “Pirate’s Scorn” upon you.
Whether the album makes you want to grab a fresh coconut and sip it or open up a nice bottle of beer – it will definitely lead to a wild piratical escapade. For the extra-adventurous pirates amongst you, ALESTORM will release a 2-CD Mediabook with ground-breaking 16th century interpretations of the songs. Be sure to get yours.
