TV ‘stache: ALABAMA SHAKES Making Noise

February 8, 2012 Leave a comment

Alabama Shakes made their national television debut last night on Conan.

Viewers witnessed a stellar Alabama Shakes performance on Conan last night as the band performed ‘Hold On’, the first single from their highly anticipated debut album, Boys & Girls, which is due out April 10 in North America from ATO Records and April 9 internationally via Rough Trade. Watch the performance here!

Alabama Shakes are absolutely a must-see live act, they rocked our ‘staches clear off at a recent NYC show.  The band just completed its first-ever West Coast run, playing 11 sold-out shows, and will make its London debut later this month with three sold-out nights at Boston Arms. They will perform at SXSW this spring and don’t worry, additional North American dates will be announced soon!
Alabama Shakes were named ‘Best New Band of the Year’ by Paste Magazine and hailed as a “genuine, word-of-mouth, go-see-them-then-tell-10-friends-how-amazing-they-are thing” by NME.

“New fans are converted at every gig,” observed Rolling Stone in a recent Breaking Artist feature. “The fast-rising soul-indebted rock band is turning ears for its incendiary live sets,” said the Los Angeles Times while praised Alabama Shakes’ “ferocious and unpretentious fusion of Southern rock and blues.” The New York TimesJon Pareles described lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard as a “thunderbolt dressed in blue jeans.” “[She is] diving into the wreck of music history and coming up with treasures we can use,” said The Hollywood Reporter.

Jack White’s Third Man Records will release a two-song 7” from the band’s fall 2011 session at Third Man in Nashville later this month. Alabama Shakes recently appeared on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” and NPR’s World Café. You can check them out performing ‘Hold On’ live for MTV Hive’s ‘First Take’ series here.

Alabama Shakes are vocalist/guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, drummer Steve Johnson and bassist Zac Cockrell with Ben Tanner assisting on keyboards. The band are based in Athens, Alabama and began playing together when they were in high school. Boys & Girls was produced and mixed by the band and recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN.

‘Hold On’ is available now on iTunes and can be streamed here.
