Larry Love - Alabama 3
Alabama 3 hit the ground running with their eclectic rock, dance, blues, country, gospel and spoken word mash-ups. deemed “the best live band in the UK” by one of the UK’s most respected newspapers, The Guardian. They went on to achieve international fame, they have been sampled by the likes of Nas and Jay-Z, and wrote what would become the theme tune to HBO’s legendary TV series The Sopranos, ‘Woke Up This Morning’.
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 Exile on Coldharbour Lane in 1997. Maintaining their loyal following and with plenty of new additions to their fanbase, Alabama 3 continue to tour regularly, playing sell-out shows and festivals across the country and Europe.
Now, Alabama 3 are ready to bring their holy-rolling, narco-evangelism to festival stages in 2020.
Those Damn Crows
Those Damn Crows, one of the fastest rising new rock bands in the UK. Their debut album, the powerfully anthemic Murder And The Motive, has seen them push ahead of the pack. At a time when British rock is making itself known on the world stage once more, Those Damn Crows are right there in the thick of it.
“Over the last couple of years it’s felt like something’s coming through, that a rock band is on the verge of something big,” says Shane. “That kind of music is coming back – the kind that’s been missing for a long while, the kind of thing that made you want to be in a band in the first place. And that’s what we’re doing.”
Those Damn Crows draw on a wealth of influences: the undiluted energy of 90s grunge and punk, the arena-scraping ambition of the Foo Fighters, the sheer class of such legendary metal bands as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
“We get everyone at our gigs, Rock fans, metal heads, punk kids, skaters. It’s a broad church.”
Earlier this year, Those Damn Crows signed to influential British label Earache Records, home of Rival Sons, Blackberry Smoke and The Glorious Sons. The band recently worked with legendary producer Mike Exeter (Judas Priest/Black Sabbath) on new songs.
The path that Those Damn Crows have chosen to take – honesty, freedom, ambition – is paying off. Rock’s new heroes are about to take flight.
