Electro-pioneers Alabama 3 released their latest single, ‘Wacked’, the lead track from their newly announced album, ‘Step 13’
The track is packed full of electro-beats and a funk that just won’t quit. Couple this with the unmistakable growls of Larry Love’s vocals and you get a truly unique listening experience.
‘Wacked’ is the first material the band have released since the passing of The Very Reverend D.Wayne Love, and sees the outfit sounding as fresh as ever.
Speaking of the track, Love said, “You can praise the Lord, you can pass the ammunition, you can be woke you can be wicked you can have the wisdom of Solomon but unless you’re ready to get whacked with Alabama 3 there’s no point in dreaming.
“Rearrange the rubble, paint your bomb shelters and make sure everybody in the neighbourhood feels good cos we feel like getting stupid and you need to get whacked.”
Alongside announcements of both an album and a single, Alabama 3 have also treated their fans to news of a tour.
The tour is set to take place in March and April 2022, dates of which can be seen bellow.
