REVOLVER SOUL - NEW ALBUM RELEASE AND TOUR

HIS MASTER'S VOICE

 

THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM occurred just a few weeks ago. On Christmas Day 2009 British men, women, children and grandmothers, pogoed up and down and screamed like bastards:

'FUCK YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TOLD ME!'

This was a Rage Against the Machine of corporate hegemony. It was MASSIVE. It was VIRAL. It was FUNNY. And It WORKED. Simon Cowell, the FAGIN of Global Entertainment Media was reduced to a Mr Bumble, pleading mournfully in the snow, 'Boy for Sale....'
 
In that same year, after over a decade of drinking the slops from the HOLY JACUZZI of Bjork, the Alabama 3 parted 'by mutual agreement' from their record company, One Little Indian. At the same time, Virgin, Zavvi and every other high street music outlet apart from HMV shrivelled and died. In the ungovernable realm of hyperspace, PHYSICAL OBJECTS, however round and shiny, suddenly became SO last century.

When you don't need OBJECTS, you don’t need pressing plants, you don't need lorries, you don’t need SHOPS and your ART doesn't need to become a HOSTAGE to record companies.

That's right kids, MOMMIE’S GONE FOREVER. Stop crying now. She never loved us. That fat, lazy bitch took the house and most of our hard-earned money. But she left behind the most valuable thing. We have custody of YOU, our special children.

Don’t be scared. Alabama 3 are your Mummy AND Daddy now. You know how mummy was always nagging us telling us we couldn't do this and you couldn't do that? How she used to spend your toy money on stupid dresses? That’s over. We don't need mummy anymore.  We're going to do LOTS of NEW THINGS together that we couldn't do when mummy was around... and the first thing we're gonna do, my beloved sons and daughters is...

That's right kids. We're all off the Leash. And since we shook off the shackles of corporate control, we've been BUSY. Daddy built a shed in the garden. He filled it full of Tools. And with those TOOLS he made a TOY for you, my darlings. It goes round and round and makes a lovely sound... tick...tick...tick...

TAKE NO PRISONERS!

REVOLVER SOUL is deeper, darker and stronger and stranger than anything you've heard us do before. By the date of its release, Alabama 3 will have survived 3 record deals, 3 elections, 2 wars and 2 recessions. During that time we have struggled as HOSTAGES to the FORTUNE of BIG LABELS. The 8th Alabama 3 album will be the first taste of sweet release on our new INDEPENDENT label, HOSTAGE records, recorded at our new studio at JAMM in the heart of BRIXTON. We will shortly be calling on you, our beloved congregation, to become soldiers in a WAR in defense of LIBERTY. We will fight them in the High Street, we will fight them on the Road, we will fight them in Hyperspace, and we will fight them in the Carling Academy. We're fighting for SURVIVAL people, the survival of your WAY OF LIFE, and your FREEDOM.
 

Alabama 3 is no longer a church. Its an Army.

      Its your mission. Its Online.

         Start Thinking Soldier.

 
  

REVOLVER SOUL WILL BE AVAILABLE TO BUY FROM MAJOR RETAILERS FROM MAY 3RD
