Alberta Cross – “Leave Us and Forgive Us”
File this under “Bands to Watch.” Alberta Cross is poised to release their much anticipated full length debut, Broken Side of Time, on September 22. Their EP, The Thief & The Heartbreaker, was on heavy rotation for me all last year. I was immediately attracted to lead singer/guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee’s Kurt Cobain-like desperation and Neil Young Americana rock vibe. Their set at SXSW this year was one of my favorite live performances as well.
Stay tuned for tour dates. In the meantime, you can download a free copy of the MP3 for “Leave Us and Forgive Us” on their website now.
