South London’s beloved roots-futurists Alabama 3 have announced ‘STEP 13: THE DIVINE INTERVENTION TOUR’ set to take place in Spring 2022.
The group was born at an all-night squat party during the ’90s. Charismatic front man and co-founder Rob Spragg, started singing the lyrics to a Hank Williams song over an acid-house beat. Meanwhile, the other co-founder, the late Jake Black, a diehard Jazz fan, apparently re-joined with some bebop skat stylings. On that unforgettable night, the mutant embryo of the ALABAMA 3 was conceived.
An offering that refuses to wallow in pity. Instead, the war-torn Brixton collective triumph according to their own peerless standards of cross-pollinating experimentation, street polemic. This latest album from the band is the pick me up we all need; a reminder to leave, bad news in the past, caution to the wind, and life to the fullest. Luckily for those of us who need a reminder, the band will bring their new tracks, as well as old favourites across country, and they embark on a UK tour for spring 2022. Travelling up and down the nation, the group will bring over 20 years of their fantastical, extreme sound to misfits, weirdos, and music lovers everywhere, providing the ferocious thrill of energy that have cemented the group as one of the UK’s most beloved trip-hop acts.
They will perform at Holmfirth Picture Drome on April 15th & The Warehouse in Leeds on April 17th 2022.
