No other band in the galaxy creates such epic modern symphonic folk metal anthems with endless hooks that will be stuck in your head until the heat death of the universe.

“No Grave But The Sea” will be available in approximately three million different formats, so you can get whatever one satisfies your particular desires for silly auxiliary trinkets and bonus material. Speaking of bonus material…if you get the special Mediabook edition of the album, it comes with a 2nd CD entitled “No Grave But The Sea for Dogs”, which contains the entire album except all the vocals have been replaced by a dog barking. We can guarantee you won’t listen to the whole thing, it’s spectacularly bad.
There’s also an ultra-deluxe WOODEN BOX WOODEN BOX WOODEN BOX edition of the album which contains the Mediabook, a compass, a deck of custom Alestorm playing cards, a poster flag, some postcards, and a bonus 7 Inch Vinyl Single featuring the censored version of Fucked with an Anchor (so you can play it to your kids!) and a song about pizza which we wrote in 5 minutes to fill up space. This version costs approximately the GDP of a small country, so I wouldn’t buy it unless you’re the world’s biggest Alestorm fan. The wooden box also doubles as emergency kindling if you find yourself lost in the wilderness.
Oh yeah and there’s a bunch of versions on 12″ Vinyl too. Apparently you crazy kids think vinyl sounds better? Personally I like MP3′s more. Whatever, just buy the damn record in whatever format you like.
You can pre-order “No Grave But the Sea” in their label’s official webshop. Remember, 100% of the profits from this album are going towards building a new sauna for Alestorm’s pirate ship!
