Nine Black Alps - Biography
|last update : 04-07-2009 22:21|
|Nine Black Alps are a rock band based in Manchester, UK. The line up of the group is Sam Forrest (vocals, guitar), David Jones (guitar, bass), Martin Cohen (bass, guitar) and James Galley (drums, vocals).
Since their inception in 2003 they have developed a reputation for their loud and aggressive yet melodic music that echoes the sounds of American alternative rock bands such as Nirvana, Pixies and Dinosaur Jr.
They are renowned for their energetic and anarchic live shows which have taken them across Northern Europe, North America and Japan playing with bands such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Weezer and Biffy Clyro.
Nine Black Alps were signed to Island Records who released the albums 'Everything Is' (2005) and 'Love/Hate' (2007) and also an EP of B-sides called 'Glitter Gulch' (2006).
In 2007 the band left Island Records but continued to tour the UK until February 2008, when Nine Black Alps began work on their third album.
The new album, entitled 'Locked out from the Inside' was recorded with producer Dave Eringa during the winter of 2008/2009, and is due for release in the autumn this year.
The first release from the album was a new track called 'Buy Nothing', which within hours of its release on NME.com was downloaded more than any other track the NME have ever featured.
Following this success, Nine Black Alps are currently on tour in the UK to promote the new single and the forthcoming new album.
