Lock your cellars and hide your wenches! Ale-guzzling Australian warriors Claim The Throne are set to ransack taverns in the distant lands of the UK and Ireland in support of pirate metal urchins Alestorm.
Said Alestorm about this happy meeting of (booze-addled) minds: "Greetings dudes! In February 2012 we'll be hitting the road for our biggest headlining UK tour EVER, including our first ever shows in Ireland! Along with us will be our Australian buddies Claim The Throne, who are really good at getting drunk."

Riding high on the success of the latest album Triumph and Beyond and huge Australian tours with Alestorm, Finntroll and their own headlining tour in 2012 , CTT are well primed to bring their all conquering and frothy guzzling live show to the mother land. Putting the ‘fun’ in funnels since 2005, Claim The Throne have built a reputation for outrageous live performances and a unique take on the folk metal genre. With a newly refined line-up in 2010, Triumph and Beyond displays the band at their peak with 12 tracks of fearless victory and its festive aftermath.
