Back Through Time, the new album from Scottish metal pirates Alestorm, will be released on June 3rd in Europe and June 14th in North America through Napalm Records.

The album will be available in Jewelcase, Digipak, Vinyl, and Epic Special Edition formats.

One of the new tracks, called "Shipwrecked", is still available for streaming over at SoundCloud.

Yes, that is a rat on a snowboard.

Back Through Time tracklist:

01. Back Through Time
02. Shipwrecked
03. The Sunk'n Norwegian
04. Midget Saw
05. Buckfast Powersmash
06. Scraping The Barrel
07. Rum
08. Swashbuckled
09. Rumpelkombo
10. Barrett's Privateers
11. Death Throes Of The Terrorsquid
12. I Am A Cider Drinker [The Wurzels cover] [Limited edition bonus]
13. You Are A Pirate [Limited edition bonus]

Said vocalist Christopher Bowes about the bonus tracks: "For those who don't know, "I am a Cider Drinker" is a cover of a song by The Wurzels, an English Scrumpy n' Western band. I think it was a big pop hit in the 70's, teaching children about the joys of alcohol abuse. We've metalled it up just for a wee laugh. And of course "You are a Pirate"... well... the less said about that the better."

Though, I am kind of interested in this album, that mouse on surfboard made me laugh

Haha, great artwork, great song titles, "Shipwrecked" is pretty good and the cover songs will surely be amazing!

Think a Limited Edition purchase is mandatory for this one!

Their two albums are great, I expect nothing than the best from them

The album artwork is genius. Seriously, who would have ever thought to put a rat on a snowboard on an album cover like this? The boat and the pirate are also pretty epic.

Snowboard or surfboard?
