Alberta Cross headlining tour dates with Everest

Alberta Cross

As previously announced, Alberta Cross will be taking their high-energy show on the road this month for a headlining tour with Everest kicking off this week on July 5th in Chicago.

The band, who recently gave a stellar performance at this year's Governor's Ball Music Festival, will also be making stops at Summerfest and Bunbury Music Festival. In addition, Alberta Cross has just added a Bowery Ballroom show in New York City on September 13th.

In other news, Alberta Cross will be streaming a special acoustic session live on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 @ 4pm ET via LiveStream. Fans from around the world will be able to tune in and hear new tracks off the Brooklyn-based duo's highly anticipated sophomore album, Songs of Patience, which is out on July 17th on ATO Records. Viewers will also have a chance to ask the band questions by instant messaging them at the end of the session.

More Praise for Alberta Cross:

"…the seismic guitars and high vocals look to My Morning Jacket, Kings of Leon and Crazy Horse…but Alberta Cross sets aside those American bands' redemptive undercurrents of blues and gospel; instead it plunges into the very English despair of bands like Pink Floyd." - The New York Times

"On the basis of advance single "Lay Down," the new record will be no less massive than its predecessor. Where the Brooklyn-based, London-transplanted duo's breakout album carried echoes of Kings of Leon and My Morning Jacket, this stadium-size midtempo rocker also has the shamanic swagger of early Verve or former Alberta Cross tourmates Oasis." - Spin

"[Alberta Cross combines] wind tunnels of bent guitar riffs and distorted power chords with the haunting melodies of rural American music. It's all topped by Ericson Stakee's sweet, high-lonesome voice, which recalls both Jim James and Neil Young." - Rolling Stone

"…familiar and refreshing...Alberta Cross has taken incredible strides to earn global recognition." - NPR
