Brace yourself for a boatload of fist-pumping singalongs as Scottish "Pirate Metal" masters Alestorm are returning to our shores this coming February, for a headline show at Auckland's Whammy Bar. Since their humble land-lubbing beginnings in 2006, Alestorm's swashbuckling anthems have stormed the globe with five powerful albums including 2017's No Grave But The Sea. Alestorm's merry-making brand of Pirate Metal is described as a blend of power metal and folk, the group themselves declare they've "managed to convince hundreds of thousands of people from New Zealand to Argentina to Lithuania and everywhere inbetween (except Paraguay), that it's cool to wear a pirate hat and sing stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing ships." Bust out the rum and scope the details here...
