NEW ALBUM, NEW TOUR, NEW SOUND!‏

'THERE WILL BE PEACE IN THE VALLEY...WHEN WE GET THE KEYS TO THE MANSION ON THE HILL'

 It started 3 years ago. 
The four piece that is Alabama 3 Acoustic and Unplugged were touring in Australia.  In some off time they decided it was time they got themselves into a studio and immortalised their unique sound.
In the 3 years that have passed since then many things have changed...
One singer left to have a baby, another singer joined the group, 'Revolver Soul' was released, and a new Con-Dem government came into power in the UK, trailing civil unrest in its wake... 

In the words of Larry Love:

Not since Robert Johnson dropped thirty eight tracks in one night in a Minnesota hotel room, in 1938 and defined the blueprint for  Delta Blues has the genre  been so radically ‘fucked’ with.  Alabama 3’s new album ‘There will be peace in the valley… when we get the keys to the mansion on the hill’ is back porch music for frontline people  - and if you ain’t ready to rumble you might as well go back to your Eric Clapton records.
  The album is primarily concerned with the doomed relationship that is Mr Daniels’ and Miss Martell’s love affair. Set in a mythical South Wales Valley, these are the children of a post industrial wasteland where the future is uncertain and the end is always near.
  Accompanying the Album is an exclusive short story written by Valleyman himself, Howard Marks - the legendary wit, raconteur and libertine. Danny Markey renowned artist (by courtesy of Redfern gallery) provides the melancholic paintings that adorn the sleeve.
  Consisting of 11 original tracks plus the indomitable 'Love will tear us apart' guaranteed to draw you out of your rocking chair and into the 23rd Century  and provide you  with the necessary armour you need to get you through the Summer of Rage.
  Just because all you’ve got is an acoustic guitar don’t mean that you can’t cause a riot.
  Mixed by the grammy winning Mark Wallis and featuring  amongst others the ‘Soul II Soul’ string section, Devlin Love, Eliza Mellor (aka Eliza Strummer), Aurora Dawn etc etc
  'This machine kills fascists' (Woody Guthrie)
Will you be a Hostage to misfortune or the kidnapped with no deadline?  Deal or no Deal – it’s your choice baby...'


 
'THERE WILL BE PEACE IN THE VALLEY...WHEN WE GET THE KEYS TO THE MANSION ON THE HILL' WILL BE RELEASED ON FEBRUARY 24TH.
