ALABAMA 3 - New Album & 20th Anniversary Tour

ALABAMA 3

NEW ALBUM – ‘BLUES’

RELEASED - HOSTAGE MUSIC – 28TH OCTOBER 2016

TOUR ANNOUNCED - AUTUMN 2016


Alabama 3 are set to release brand new album on the Hostage Music label on the 28th of October 2016.

‘Blues’, released on CD, vinyl and available to download, is their thirteenth long player and was recorded and co-produced with Wizard (Chemical Brothers, Dizzee Rascal, X-Press 2, Wiley, DJ Fresh, M.I.A. / Diplo, Chase & Status) at Dean Street Studios in London this year.

The new album features ten tracks, including the forthcoming new single ‘(I'll Never Be) Satisfied’, and brings together their now trademark chain gang clarion calls, bittersweet dope laments, sleazy whiskey rhythms, wailing harmonicas and obligatory Delta slide to great effect. Too many highlights to mention, this is a essentially a straight ahead Rock ’n’ Roll record that captures and embraces every human emotion and is possibly the infamous London band’s most complete and finest collection of songs to date.


Album Tracklisting:

01. (I'll Never Be) Satisfied

02. Exodus (Movement of War People)

03. Rattlesnake Woman

04. Nothing To Lose But Your Chains

05. Forever In Blues

06. Vigilante Man

07. Lost and Found

08. Jonestown Blues

09. Rising Tide

10. Turn The Jukebox On


After two glorious decades, the Alabama 3 line up of Larry Love (lead vocals), Rev. D Wayne Love (vocals), Rock Freebase (Guitar), Stevie Nicked (Guitar), Wizard (Decks), L.B. Dope (Drums), Rev Be Atwell (Backing Vocals), The Spirit Of Love (Keyboards) and Harpo Strangelove (Harmonica) are as relevant as they were when they formed in Brixton and set about crafting their groundbreaking debut album  ‘Exile On Coldharbour Lane’. They’ve since released a string of genre defying albums and have continued to thrill audiences all over the world while many of their contemporary’s have imploded or simply disappeared.

Pills and Blues. B.B. King, Hank Williams, Bobby Rush, Rosco Gordon, Howlin’ Wolf, Ma Rainey and Fats Domino. American record deals, theme tunes to hit TV series, BAFTA awards and the departure and re-entry of more members than any band should ever carry. Twenty years and still standing, Alabama 3 are still without doubt one of the most enduring and important bands around.

A UK and Irish Tour to celebrate their formation twenty years ago will kick off at the Limelight in Belfast on the 11th of November and will include a London show at Shepherds Bush Empire on the 3rd of December.
