The only perveyors of True Scottish Pirate Metal, Perthshire quintet Alestorm are coming to Glasgow in support of their new album Sunset On The Golden Age, set for release in August 2014. After storming sets at Sonisphere back in July, and a live dates throughout Europe, the nautical marauders are taking to the road as part of their PIRATEFEST tour. Support comes from Australia’s Lagerstein, and Nottingham’s Redrum.
Signed to Austria’s Napalm Records, and now on their fourth album, Alestorm - comprised of Christopher Bowes, Dani Evans, Gareth Murdock, Elliot Vernon and Peter Alcorn – are flying the skull and crossbones for the Pirate Metal cause this October. Prepare to have your mind blown, with tales of mythological creatures, epic battles, and swashbuckling action that’ll make you want to raise up a pint of rum and sing your heart out.
Alestorm are coming to kick ass and chew gum. And they’re all out of gum.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
