After 50+ hours of flying, we've all made it home from the Australia & NZ Tour. We'll be releasing a live DVD of it later in the year, which is going to kick incredible amounts of ass.
Now onto the next thing: the full dates for our LATIN AMERICAN tour! If you all show enough support and come out to the gigs, we'll be back to plunder your shores again with even bigger shows next year! PARTY!
On MONDAY we fly off to the USA to start our month-long tour supporting Epica! In the meantime, I've decided to go completely insane and make stupid posters to advertise it.

The time has come for Alestorm's FIRST EVER headlining European tour!
In March 2013, we'll be hitting the stages of central europe under the banner of Paganfest, with support from Arkona, Thyrfing, Ex Deo, Wolfchant and Bornholm. We're going to make these our biggest shows ever, with mad antics involving an on-stage working tiki bar, so we can all get pissed while we play. See you on the road, europe!
Here's the dates announced so far. There's a couple more shows in other countries to be confirmed, stay tuned for more updates!
As most of you (hopefully) know by now, in January we'll be returning to Australia and NZ to film our first ever full length live DVD, featuring a badass live show recorded in Melbourne, and tons of crazy nonsense from venues, backstages and cities throughout the whole tour.
Here's the poster with all the info... I want all of you crazy bastards to share this with EVERYBODY YOU'VE EVER MET. Print it out and superglue it to the faces of homeless people. Make it into a cape for your pet cat. Break into art galleries, set fire to priceless masterpieces and replace them with this poster! All that sort of stuff.
Cheers, and get your ass to a show, and get drunk!

amazing tours of Australia, it was a no-brainer decision to come back

involving alcohol and your girlfriends! Pirate catchphrase!"
