Alberta Cross: Tour w/ Ben Harper Them Crooked Vultures

ALBERTA CROSS TO TOUR WITH THEM CROOKED VULTURES, BEN HARPER
BROKEN SIDE OF TIME CONTINUES TO RECEIVE ACCLAIM

Alberta Cross
Alberta Cross, praised by Rolling Stone as "roots-rock grit meets Brit-pop grandeur," will tour with Them Crooked Vultures this May. The dates come on the heels of a tour with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and follow the band's opening slot for Ben Harper.

Their much-anticipated ATO Records debut Broken Side of Time is being widely praised by critics, with Esquire declaring "as electrically dark as it is electrifyingly determined," and Billboard calling it "a step forward in cementing their place in American blues-rock," that "leaves an unmistakable mark." Likewise, they were featured as a "Breaking Artist" in Rolling Stone, which praises them for "combining wind tunnels of bent guitar riffs and distorted power chords with the haunting melodies of rural American music. It's all topped by Ericson Stakee's sweet, high-lonesome voice, which recalls both Jim James and Neil Young."
