Alabama Shakes Tour: Soul-drenched Southern rockers hitting the road this summer
By Alex Baker
The Alabama Shakes are hitting the road this summer on an extended tour jaunt that’s currently seeing them selling out venues across the country and overseas.
Fronted by 24-year old Brittany Howard, as uniquely talented a frontwoman as you’ll find in today’s musical milieu, the Alabama Shakes have concocted a sound that’s a powerful blend of Muscle Shoals soul, Southern rock and elements of punk.
Prepare to have your socks knocked off by this clip of the band playing “Always Alright” live at the Free Press Summer Festival in Houston earlier this month.
So far the band are receiving glowing reviews for their live shows on the tour. They also have an unreleased track coming out on the latest volume of the True Blood soundtrack which you can check out here.
