Alabama Shakes Tickets for Sale
The Alabama Shakes are the latest rock band to emerge from the indie band scene, one steeped in praise from sources like NPR and indie music outlets. The group broke out with the single "Hold On". That song has introduced the world to a group previously only known on the live music circuit. Now it has received the kind of attention that pop acts wish to receive. The single comes from the recent full-length release, Boys & Girls.
The album has reached number eight in the United States and number three in the UK. It is one that endears itself to knowledgeable music audiences. It is part Southern Rock, part blues rock, and part soul. The "garage rock" band revved that audience up with the self-titled EP. The Alabama Shakes released the EP in September 2011 and soon followed with the full-length album in 2012.
The Alabama Shakes first took the stage in 2009. Then they were merely a loose group writing original music on their own time, but playing covers of groups and artists like Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Otis Redding, and AC/DC. The eclectic set inspired Brittany Howard (lead singer), Heath Fogg (guitarist), Zac Cockrell (bassist), and Steve Johnson (2011) to band together, play original music, and pursue the live stage beyond the confines of Decatur, Alabama.
Originally, these four were merely the Shakes, but a long list of groups shared the name, inciting the band to add the state to the title and becoming the Alabama Shakes. Since then they have been interviewed by the American Songwriter Magazine, released an eponymous EP, signed with Rough Trade Records in the UK and ATO in the United States, and now released a critically acclaimed album. OnlineSeats has the Alabama Shakes tickets to see the group rock in concert on a tour schedule extending into summer 2012.
