Alestorm issue Magnetic North video

Alestorm have released a video for their track Magnetic North.

And the band report that they chose to issue the promo now to mark the one-year anniversary of their fourth album Sunset Of The Golden Age.

The Scottish pirate metal outfit say: “What a crazy year it’s been. This is probably the most ridiculous music video from a folk/power/whatever metal band ever.

“If you can think of a sillier one, let us know, and we’ll send you a year’s supply of ham!”

Alestorm will tour Australia and New Zealand with seven dates scheduled for November where they’ll be joined by Lagerstein. They’ll then return to the UK for a run of shows in February with Sabaton:
