Valhalla, 154 Vivian Street, Wellington



Avast, ye landlubbers! From the deepest darkest depths of the Caribbean comes Alestorm, a drunken band of pirates on an epic quest to drink your beer, steal your rum, and be the greatest damn band that ever did sail the seven seas!

Describing their style as "True Scottish Pirate Metal", AlestorM plays an infectious blend of modern folk and power metal with a unique piratical twist. After forming in 2006 and rapidly gaining a cult following in their local scene, the band signed to Austria's Napalm Records, and released four groundbreaking albums; "Captain Morgan's Revenge" (2008), "Black Sails at Midnight" (2009), "Back Through Time" (2011), and now their latest album "Sunset on the Golden Age" (2014). Prepare to have your mind blown with some of the catchiest Pirate Metal anthems you've ever heard, with tales of mythological creatures, epic battles, and swashbuckling action that'll make you want to raise up a pint of rum and sing your heart out. Alestorm are coming to kick ass and chew gum. And they're all out of gum.

Joining the quest are local comrades in Lagerstein who since 2011, have been partying and playing at all the usual places around our magnificent but dry country. Word has quickly spread around about a band that would play cheesy pirate songs, whilst drinking what is surely enough alcohol to kill a small whale. More and more people started coming to shows, dressing up and just making a night out of going to be part of the Lagerstein shenanigans. Due to this general tomfoolery Lagerstein have created a cult following of beer guzzling, ho down dancing pirates.

Hold on to your butts revellers, Alestorm's Piratefest, it's about to get drunk!

Tickets available from Undertheradar / Slow Boat Records / RPM
