If you’re in any way a regular visitor to the site, you’ll know by now that we are all about the pirate metal. Therefore this news fills us with glee we haven’t felt since Chris Bowes last announced a tour. Red Rum (you know damn well where this is going) have announced a tour! #yarr #quest #piracyhashtag The press release is as follows, but we’ll be there, with rum in our stomachs, a song in our throats and a hangover in our heads.
