With the launch of their new album, ‘Sunset On The Golden Age’, scheduled for August 1, PlanetMosh pulled up a tri-cornered stool, cracked open a bottle of the finest liberated rum and fired up ye olde telephony thingymajig to the captain of the good ship Alestorm – vocalist Chris Bowes – for a heart to heart chat about what he unashamedly describes as their “stupidest” set of recordings to date:
