Heavy metal Pirates Alestorm have announced a set of UK and Ireland tour dates for 2018 under the name ‘Piratefest’. The band issued the following announcement via their facebook page:

“Ahoy pirates of the United Kingdom and Ireland! It’s our complete human pleasure to announce our Piratefest tour of your silly little countries in February 2018! Joined by veteran pirate bands Rumahoy (on Napalm Records, from the Caribbean Sea) and The Dread Crew Of Oddwood (from the United States). Alestorm will be storming huge venues across the country for 15 epic nights of partying, pizza, piracy, and drunken singalongs. So moisten your cutlass and get polishing your rusty eyepatch, and get your tickets for the best metal tour of the year right now!”
