alberta cross bandOne of our hot tips for 2009 are Kings Of Leon-alikes Alberta Cross and the band’s potential has never been more evident than on the clip for new single ATX.

Fans will have to wait until September 14 before that track hits stores – a taster for the superb album Broken Side Of Time. But we’re so impressed with our promo copy and the record’s lead single that we just can’t keep these boys a secret any longer! 

Surging with energy, pain and paranoia, singer Petter Ericson Stakee and the band reach from deep within on what is one of the album’s most explosive tracks.

“The song came out of a late night drunken jam,” said Petter. “The lyrics are about David Bowie’s The Man Who Fell To Earth. It’s about being an alien, being out of place.”

The video for the single is culled from live footage of the band’s recent performances at the Coachella and Bonnaroo festivals, plus last month’s two appearances at Brixton Academy. Check it out right here, right now:
