Alone at 3AM’s New Album “Show The Blood” Out On Sofaburn Records On 9/18

Alone at 3AM

Alone at 3AM

Emerging from shambolic basement shows and early roster shake-ups, over 16 years Max Fender and Joey Beck have coiled Midwest stalwarts Alone at 3AM into a tightly-wound muscular force with “a refreshing straightforwardness not found in most music” (Scene).

The band has been at a dead run since 2010’s album Cut Your Gills and 2012 single From an Ohio Basement, reveling in hard-earned rock&roll escapism while revealing substantial songwriting chops. Embedded in these earliest songs, some of which like “Blacktop Cracks” remain live favorites, are unresolved questions. Often the only answer is found in the act of living in the fleeting combustion of a three minute song, that brief musical connection between band members and an audience. Read more

There’s always been something rambunctious about Nick Moss. While other artists settle into a genre, Nick has always been about discovering new sonic territory, new textures and new musical frontiers. His recording career spans decades and his albums are staples at blues radio worldwide, and are now in rotation at stations with jam and rock formats. All this would leave most artists satisfied to stick with a niche. However, Nick’s pursuit of sound comes from a restless, innovative and constant search for music that evokes a physical and emotional response. It’s not just chords and progressions and songs that make up Nick’s music mentality, but his desire to elevate an audience; to evoke a feeling of euphoric energy between performer and listener; to capture sound as well as sensation.
