Alestorm (opens in new tab) have revealed that their new studio album will be titled Curse Of The Crystal Coconut – and say it’ll be out this summer.

The band have been working on the follow-up to 2017’s No Grave But The Sea, with the news coming ahead of their run of 2020 tour dates, which are set to kick off in Madrid in February.

Alestorm say in a statement: “Humans of planet Earth! We're super excited to announce that today we have entered Krabi Road Studios in Thailand to begin the recording of the sixth Alestorm album, which will be called Curse Of The Crystal Coconut

“We may or may not have stolen that title from Donkey Kong. Anyway, we'll be here for the next three weeks recording 13-ish songs – some of which will be so absolutely terrible that they'll never see the light of day. 

“The ones that somehow turn out all right will be released on Napalm Records sometime in the early summer! Lots of updates coming soon – stay tuned and we'll tell you all about it.”

No Grave But The Sea reached no.1 on the Heatseekers album charts in the US, no.14 on the German album charts and placed in the top 20 in Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and New Zealand.
