What's it like playing a 70,000 ton cruise ship? This guy knows

It's Podcast 14 - Peter from Alestorm



He’s the drummer from Co. Down who’s just played the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise ship.

Oh – and toured Japan, America, and done more festivals than you can shake a stick at.

Meet Peter Alcorn, drummer with pirate metal success story Alestorm.

You mightn’t think it, but they’re remarkably popular, and still growing. Their success has been down to plain hard graft on the road, with a punishing touring schedule and hard work ethic.

Peter took some time out of their relentless itinerary to chat with us about what a ride it’s been, and how he keeps sane through it all.

Home In A Boat

It was the festival that just couldnt get any better for a band whose imagery is all about life on the high seas – the famed 70,000 Tons Of Metal festival. This is Alestorm playing it. Nice!
