When the band recorded and finished their third album this amorphous lack of center became self-evident and the band scrapped it, feeling as if they were on the verge of something. Founding members Stakee and Terry Wolfers hunkered down into the relationship that forms the core of Alberta Cross and edited, remixed, and wrote anew. Through the trials and tribulations comes the appropriately titled, Songs of Patience.
In a sea of indie-esque rock bands, Alberta Cross soars to the top with their roaring guitars, piercing vocals, and powerful ensemble sound. The band incorporates a classic rock sound into their contemporary rock grooves, which makes for an overwhelmingly catchy sound.
The Sasquatch! Festival will return to The Gorge in George, WA over Memorial Day Weekend boasting a lineup jammed packed with indie faves who are on major labels such as Wilco, the Flaming Lips (performing The Soft Bulletin plus more), Modest Mouse, Death Cab For Cutie, Chromeo, The Decemberists and the Foo Fighters.
Four-day all-inclusive passes are currently available for $285.

As hard-rocking as their show is, the biggest feeling that I got from Alberta Cross' performance was one of massive potential yet to be realized. They are only one album deep into their career, and it is clear that this band should become much bigger as they hone their songcraft and build their strengths as a group.
