[on the road] Alabama Shakes

The Alabama Shakes will be the road this Spring in support of their upcoming LP — Boys & Girls (out April 9th, pre-order).

After generating quite the buzz with their live performances and the fantastic EP they put out in 2011, the band is set for a big 2012.  The tour kicks off this March in Chicago and wraps at Bonnaroo this June.  They’ve got quite the tour schedule, with plenty of North American stops, a handful of European shows, plus some some festival stops along the way, including SXSW and Sasquatch.

I highly recommend catching a show if you can.  As I said earlier, I expect them to have a huge year and it’s only going to get harder (and more expensive) to catch ’em live in the future.  So don’t miss out if you have the chance, I guarantee you’ll regret it.
