Although it’s been out for purchase on their official website for a week already, Alberta Cross‘s newest, five-track release, The Rolling Thunder EP, is officially available for public consumption on other music vendor sites! After debuting a few teaser singles, “Money For the Weekend” and “Get Up, (not on the EP),” both featured on ads for Ketel One Vodka and Verizon’s Droid Bionic “Ring,” and “Wait,” the quintet delivers a  beautifully crafted series of songs that blend signature howling vocals, mysterious echoing effects, bluesly, bassy sultriness, rocking slide guitar, and the touching elements of  folk.  The EP opens with the fiery “Money For the Weekend,” and follows with the seductive “Ramblin’ Home,” eerie “Wait,” bossanova-rock infused “Driving With Myself,” and finishes with the poignant, piano-driven title track.

The Brit-NYC-LA band also has a new video out for their slide guitar sensation, “ATX” from their album Broken Side of Time. Enjoy!
