Alberta Cross announce Splendour side shows  07 May 2010

Secret Sounds is proud to present Alberta Cross live in Australia for the very first time. Catch them topping the bill for headline performances at The Annandale Hotel, Sydney, on Saturday, July 24th and at The Corner Hotel, Melbourne, on Tuesday, July 27th.  

Having just been announced on the SOLD OUT Splendour In The Grass, the US-based four-piece were also personally invited as the main support for Mumford & Sons’ SOLD OUT shows in Melbourne and Adelaide.

With a unique take on Americana, full of heart, soul and unease, Alberta Cross create “outsider music to lift both the heart and the roof” (Q Magazine). Rumoured to be a powerhouse on the stage, Alberta Cross will be the band that Splendour aficionados will be talking about post event, so be sure to catch them up close and personal before the festival.

“Alberta Cross harness both extremes, combining wind tunnels of bent guitar riffs and distorted power chords with the haunting melodies of rural American music.”  US Rolling Stone

Alberta Cross have graced the stages of some of the world’s biggest festivals with performances at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. They now also count the London purveyors of folk Mumford & Sons amongst their biggest fans, professing their love for Alberta Cross live-to-air on BBC’s Radio 1, and touring with them across the UK.

Such is the high demand for Alberta Cross live that when they sold out their headlining shows in America the police arrived at an illegally over-packed gig and forced punters on to the street. To ensure no one missed out, the band offered to play for a second time in one night! The police stayed on to watch the show.

 

“Honestly, it’s hard to fault stylistic direction, as they come to life with pounding rhythms, bombastically epic lead guitar lines and just the right amount of singalongs”
****Mitch Alexander, Rave Magazine, October 2009

 

Alberta Cross bring their driving rock-soul epics to the fore this July with headline shows plus a massive sunset performance at Splendour In The Grass. Be sure you are amongst those lucky few who can claim they saw them first. We love these guys, and no doubt you will too.

BONUS! With sideshow ticket purchase, fans will have option to get digital download of the album for a special reduced price of only $8.50!
