ALESTORM guitarist Gavin Harper has issued the following update:

"Seasons Greetings lads and lasses!!!

It's been a fucking wild so far for us, what with all this record label lark and such! We honestly appreciate all the support and i'll appreciate if anyone wants to add to my X-mas booze fund via PayPal! hahaha!

Nah, seriously though, insane year and we hope to fuck more things up next year! So aye, gonna keep this fairly short... still gotta do a New Year 'pseudo-pensive-thing' so best not to rant the shite of the centuary in this one where I pretend to have a look back on the year and go "OMG MY BALLS GREW THREE MORE HAIRS!" so aye! Hahah!

Fuck, ranting shite now...

Anyway! Hope you's all have a good one, get utterly bollocksed and wake up spooning a badger!"
