Chris Bowes and his band Alestorm have been bouncing around the world playing their unique brand of pirate metal since 2007. They’re fifth album, “No Grave But The Sea” was just released on May 26th. You’ll hear a new track from the album on the show.
I love a band that doesn’t take themselves very seriously but still wants to write good music and put on a great show. And Chris is a nut, so this is a really fun interview.
We’ll dig into the beginnings of the band and how Chris ended up as the sole remaining original member. Plus how they think differently about themselves compared to their fans, how they manage to keep their pirate themes fresh, and of course… that keytar.
