Folk rockers Alberta Cross will tour the UK in November after a busy summer on the festival circuit.

The band are based in New York but originated in London where their tour will conclude in mid November.

The tour will follow the release of Alberta Cross’ long awaited debut album ‘Broken Side of Time’ on September 21 with their new single ‘ATX’ is released out on September 14. Check out the video on the right.

The band are relishing hitting the road with guitarist/vocalist Petter Ericson Stakee saying: “If we weren’t playing for people every night, we would be going mad”

“We do it, because we need to,” bassist Terry Wolfers adds. “I remember going to see The Verve on the Storm in Heaven tour, and I stood right in front of [guitarist] Nick McCabe the whole night.

“I remember walking out of that show feeling like I had just seen a group of people pour their heart and soul out, and I felt it.

“It changed my life. And that’s what we want to do: We want to give people something honest, and move them, make them feel.”
