Alestorm controversy

Alestorm, the pirate party metal band, is a big fan of ours.

However, we have received a story on multiple social media platforms that we believe we should address.

In an Instagram messaging conversation, as captured and posted to the Reddit page by the Instagram account Eye on Palestine

The Instagram post, as well as screenshots of the conversations, can be found below.

The individual speaking with Alestorm has only been identified as "a Palestinian activist.

MetalSucks has reached out to Alestorm's representatives for comment and will update this story as more information becomes available.

This is not the first time Alestorm frontman Christopher Bowes has been involved in a controversy.

A racist and sexist group chat between him and other Gloryhammer members was revealed last year.
