The notorious Pirate Kings ALESTORM hit the worldwide charts with their long-awaited long-player Curse Of The Crystal Coconut. Now the time has come to unleash the fourth video off the new album, the 75 second “Shit Boat (No Fans)”. The animated masterpiece takes you straight onto the worst pirate ship you could possibly imagine – and ALESTORM takes no prisoners!
ALESTORM on “Shit Boat (No Fans)”:
“Oh wow, everyone knows that short songs are the best songs, so naturally we had to make a music video for the shortest song on our album. This animation was put together by the lovely people at RMIT University in Melbourne, and it features all the classic elements of an ALESTORM video: magical girl transformations, giant Hungarian men dropping turds on your garden, rubber ducks, and crudely drawn cartoon penises. Enjoy!”
Producer Aaron McLoughlin on the video:
“Yeah, the pandemic has been tough on everyone, but it’s going to take a helluva lot more than that to stop RMIT Animation students from drawing pirates. The video took 17 weeks to complete and lecturer Simon Norton did an awesome job producing and directing it under quarantine. Each team member worked from home to create the most epic swashbuckling pirate adventure you’re likely to see this year!”
Curse of the Crystal Coconut is currently available through Napalm Records featuring eleven tracks presented in ALESTORM’s signature unadulterated, chaotic fashion. Adding to that are guest performances from musical greats like Ally Storch of SUBWAY TO SALLY (violin on the entire album) and Captain Yarrface of RUMAHOY!
Whether the album makes you want to grab a fresh coconut and sip it or open up a nice bottle of beer – it will definitely lead to a wild piratical escapade. For the extra-adventurous pirates amongst you, ALESTORM have released a 2-CD Mediabook with ground-breaking 16th century interpretations of the songs.
