Alestorm release retro video game-inspired promo for Mexico


Alestorm have released a video for their new track Mexico.

The song has been lifted from the band’s upcoming album No Grave But The Sea which will launch on May 26 via Napalm Records.

The band say: “Oh wow! It’s Cinco de Mayo, so let’s celebrate with a song dedicated to our favourite country in the world – Mexico!

“Like most of our music, this song is about drinking, pirates, and explosions. And don’t worry, it’s not a real donkey – it’s just Bobo and Elliot in a donkey costume.”

Alestorm will head out across the US on the Vans Warped Tour this summer and also have several European festival appearances scheduled.
