Ahoy, filthy landlubbers! ALESTORM has just landed ashore with a brand new single, “Treasure Chest Party Quest,” fresh off of their upcoming album, Curse of the Crystal Coconut, out May 29, 2020 via Napalm Records. In true, raucous ALESTORM fashion, this chant-along foot-stomper will have you amped up to party in no time, and provides a hefty sample of what’s to come on the upcoming album.
With “Treasure Chest Party Quest,” Captain Christopher Bowes & Co. make one thing crystal clear: they will come for your treasure chest while partying so hard, they probably won’t even remember they stole your riches. Try to get this song out of your head – we dare ya!
But that’s not all! To the delight of seafarers everywhere, ALESTORM has also dropped a rowdy new video for the track – a wild visual ride through the minds of the “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” that only they could dream up. Track suits, gambling, sportscars and newborn babies galore… they’re just here to have fun!
ALESTORM on the new video:
“Oh wow! We tried our very best to make a video that would alienate as many of our fans as possible. I think we succeeded! This song is about giving birth to yourself, selling out, and driving awful Yugoslavian cars. All the classic elements of pirate metal!”
The “Pirate Metal Drinking Crew” is back to show all you filthy landlubbers what they’re made of! The band’s sixth long-player features eleven tracks presented true ALESTORM fashion, featuring 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 “Tortugas” darkest taverns 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.
