Alberta Cross New Studio Album 'songs Of Patience' Out Now!
...a deep sincerity about them that takes your mind to your own version of home. Once you hit play, you're gone." -- We All Want Someone to Shout For

Cover ArtThe title of Alberta Cross' new album, Songs of Patience, is, in many ways, literal. After touring extensively behind their debut 2009, Broken Side Of Time, with bands like Them Crooked Vultures, Oasis, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and stopping at festivals like Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, Alberta Cross headed to an old, abandoned house in the middle of nowhere near Woodstock, NY. There, they braved the freezing winter and embraced a sense of the building's haunted past to envision ideas for a new record.

Ultimately, Songs of Patience is both a throwback to Alberta Cross' roots and a progression forward. It's a record that is as soulful as it is driven. The album veers from the melodic sprawl of opener "Magnolia" to the pensive provocation of "Lay Down," a song bolstered by crashing guitars and one of the record's most thrilling choruses. "Wasteland" is a hook-laden, no-holds-barred rocker showcasing Ericson Stakee's voice at its best, while "Crate of Gold" explores the motivations of the Occupy movement in all of its fuzzed-out, bass-driven glory. Indeed, Songs of Patience is the sum of three years' worth of parts – a struggle that concluded in one hell of an album, and a brilliant new chapter in the musical journey of Alberta Cross.
