Alestorm - Recording New Album, Title Unveiled (Update)

UPDATE on 05.02.2014: After announcing that they had started recording their fourth album, the guys in Alestorm just revealed the title of what will be the successor of 2011's Back Through Time: the forthcoming album will be named Sunset On The Golden Age, and will be released in the early summer via Napalm Records.

Vocalist Christopher Bowes had this to say: "This is gonna blow all your expectations as to what an Alestorm album is all about. Over the past couple of years we've been writing non-stop, and we've come up with a ton of badass material. Some of this stuff is catchiest pirate party anthems you've ever heard, with choruses that'll make you want to raise a pint of rum up high and sing your guts out. And for the fans of the epic stuff, we've got some songs that hit the 10-minute mark, with lyrical themes about historical events and crazy mythological madness. It's gonna rule!"

Original news, published on 03.02.2014: Pirate metal masters Alestorm have good news to start off your day. They will enter the studio to finally record their fourth full-length, the successor to 2011's Back Through Time. The guys have recently released their live DVD Live At The End Of The World. Now it's time for a new album.

Here you have the official statement by the band: "NEW ALBUM RECORDING! The time has come! Tomorrow we head to LSD Studio in Lübeck Germany, to record the 4th full-length Alestorm album. The very talented Lasse Lammert (he's the one in the red & black bandana) will once again be at the helm of the expect more drunkenness, more piratical badassery, and more god-awful bonus cover songs than ever before! The sun will set upon the golden age..."

Yay, another drunken pirate party
So behold the flight of the sapphire dragon
soaring through the skies once again

The producer must have literally weeks of experience.

Now that's funny!
Seriously, or as seriously as any discussion of Alestorm can be, this is good news to start my day.
