Alestorm has checked in with the following announcement about the forthcoming Piratefest tour:

"Pirates of Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and England! After the crazy fun time we had performing at Sonisphere Festival, we can now announce that we will be returning to your shores in October 2014 with our very own headlining tour!

"It's been over 2 years since we toured the UK & Ireland, so we wanted to make this one be a wee bit special. We're calling this tour Piratefest, and we're going to be bringing some of our very favourite piratical metal bands from all over the world to party with us for 19 shows.

"Have you ever seen a grown man drink a litre of rum out of his own shoe? Direct support will come from Australia's Lagerstein, a bunch of guys we've had the pleasure of touring with a lot in the past, now in the UK & Ireland for the very first time. Expect badass piratical anthems and liver-destroying on stage antics.

"We will also be joined by Red Rum, from the not-so-distant land of Nottingham, who bring a mandolin fueled pirate party to the show. And opening up all shows will be Rainbowdragoneyes from the USA, the bizzare one-man black metal chiptune project brought to you by Eric W. Brown, otherwise known as the drummer of New Jersey pirate thrashers Swashbuckle. What a party that's gonna be!"

Alestorm's new album "Sunset On The Golden Age" is due out August 5th, and you can check out a music video for the new track "Drink" at this location.
