Alestorm announce release date for Sunset On The Golden Age

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 16th April 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Metal privateers Alestorm have set the date for the release of their new album, Sunset On The Golden Age. The album, which will be the band’s fourth album, is set for release via Napalm Records on 1st 2014 in Europe, 4th August 2014 in the UK and 5th August in North America. The album’s artwork, as seen above, was designed by Ingo Römling, who worked on the artwork of Alestorm’s previous albums. The album’s title is in reference to the golden age of piracy which was roughly between the years of 1680 and 1720. Like all good things, this age had to come to an end, and the band used that as a general theme for this album. As the band stated on Facebook, in their own words: “there’s also songs about drinking and partying too.

Alestorm will also be releasing more details about the album on the lead up to its release but the band’s captain Chris did say the following on Facebook regarding the track titled Hangover:

Hangover is a cover of the dance-pop anthem by Taio Cruz and Flo Rida. It works… Trust me!

No doubt the more elite metal fans will hope this a joke but given Alestorm’s history of cover songs, including Lazy Town’s You Are A Pirate, there is a massive chance Chris is being as serious as Blackbeard plundering the Caribbean.

The tracklist for the album will be as follows:

1 – Walk the Plank
2 – Drink
3 – Magnetic North
4 – 1741 (The Battle of Cartagena)
5 – Mead from Hell
6 – Surf Squid Warfare
7 – Quest for Ships
8 – Wooden Leg!
9 – Hangover
10 – Sunset on the Golden Age
