Alestorm have just released yet another banger fresh off their new album, Curse of the Crystal Coconut (which we reviewed recently), to be released via Napalm Records on May 29, 2020! “Fannybaws” tells the story of the fearsome pirate who killed the mighty terror squid and fought against the Vikings – wearing nothing but a tiger pelt! The melding of rhythmic guitar riffs and Captain Chris Bowes’ raspy voice, both underlined by smashing drums, will channel your inner swashbuckler faster than you can say arrrggh!
Accompanying the new single, Alestorm have delivered a third official video in support of Curse of the Crystal Coconut – decked in their adored tumultuous pirate fashion, of course. Lift your eyepatch and see for yourself – sail the seas with the great “Fannybaws”!
Alestorm on the new video:
Oh wow! The history of Scotland is full of tales of mighty pirates, and none were as feared as the legendary Phann’aig Bhall (otherwise known as “Fannybaws” in Lowland Scots). I hope we’ve done his epic seafaring legacy justice with this song, and we hope you all enjoy singing along with it. Meet yer dad and smell yer maw!
Curse of the Crystal Coconut is out on May 29th – order through Amazon to help support this site!
