More than two decades since the release of their monumental debut Exile On Coldharbour Lane and 12 subsequent albums under their belt, Alabama 3 will be performing live across the UK this winter, with shows at O2 Academy Liverpool on Saturday 1 December, The Old Fire Station in Bournemouth, Friday 7 December and London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday 15 December.
Formed in Brixton, London in the mid-nineties, Alabama 3 hit the ground running with their eclectic rock, dance, blues, country, gospel and spoken word mash-ups. Achieving international fame with ‘Woke Up This Morning’ the title track for the smash hit HBO TV series The Sopranos, they went on to be sampled by the likes of Nas and Jay-Z and deemed “the best live band in the UK” by The Guardian.
Their thirteenth studio album Blues released on their own Brixton-based independent label Hostage Music in 2016, proved that after 21 years, their fire was still burning as brightly as when they released their iconic debut release in 1997. Maintaining their loyal following and with plenty of new additions to their fanbase, they’ve recently completed a year of sell-out shows and festivals across the country. Now, Alabama 3 are ready to bring their holy-rolling, narco-evangelism to stages once more.
With influences including; B.B. King, Hank Williams, Bobby Rush, Rosco Gordon, Howlin’ Wolf, Ma Rainey and Fats Domino, Alabama 3 have brought the blues style forward and mixed it with some unlikely partners in acid house and techno to create a sound like no other.
