Alberta Cross have announced their highly-anticipated new album, The Rolling Thunder EP, will be released on September 27th via ATO Records. The EP was recorded at world famous studios Electric Ladyland in New York City and Sunset Sound in Los Angeles. It was inspired by time spent across the globe – from a cottage in Wales to the haunting seclusion of the North Carolina woods. The limited edition EP will only be available at the band’s concerts and indie retail stores, satiating fans until the release of an entirely new full-length album in early 2012.
Alberta Cross will support their new EP this fall on an extensive national tour with psych-folk buzz act Portugal. The Man, launching September 28th in Santa Clara, CA. The band will also perform at the Virgin Mobile Free Fest in Maryland and the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. They will be playing new songs, recently perfected during residencies at The Casbah in San Diego andVelvet Jones in Santa Barbara, but will also be digging into their back catalog for long-time fans. Scroll down for the full list of the band’s upcoming tour dates.
Ketel One Vodka has recently announced a major partnership with Alberta Cross, as the band and their new hit “Money For The Weekend” is featured in the brand’s prominent TV, radio and digital ad campaigns throughout 2011. Acclaimed director David O. Russell (The Fighter, I Heart Huckabees, Three Kings) shot an exclusive Ketel One performance video series with Alberta Cross which is available for viewing on the band’s facebook page .
The Rolling ThunderEP is the follow up to Alberta Cross’ critically-acclaimed album Broken Side of Time. Their breakthrough release earned praise from major outlets such as Rolling Stone who called the band “A breaking artist”, Esquire Magazine who called the record “as electrically dark as it is electrifyingly determined”, and Billboard who called Broken Side of Time “a step forward in cementing the band’s place in American blues-rock”.
