St. Paul & The Broken Bones have announced a lengthy 31-date 2022 US tour to support their forthcoming album and ATO Records debut ‘The Alien Coast‘, out 28 January. The tour features some of the biggest headlining shows yet for the blazing Alabama 8-piece, including a performance at The Beacon Theatre in New York City. The band will also be touring in Europe and the UK next year, headlining London’s Electric Ballroom on 1st February. One of the great live bands to emerge over the past few years, St. Paul & The Broken Bones have toured the globe many times over, delivering a “potent live show that knocks audiences on their ass” (Esquire).  Led by frontman Paul Janeway, SPATBB have opened for the Rolling Stones and shared the stage with Elton John, and their shows are perennial highlights of marquee music festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza.

Tickets go on sale Friday morning, see below for the full itinerary.

The band has also revealed a live performance video of lead single ‘The Last Dance‘ today. The video captures one of the band’s very first live performances of the song and is brimming with their trademark energy and swagger. It was filmed in a single take at Ol Elegante studios in Birmingham, AL, the studio where they made some of their earliest recordings.

‘The Alien Coast’ is a fever dream convergence of soul and psychedelia, stoner metal and funk, and sounds unlike anything they’ve created before. It is the first SPATBB album tracked in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, AL. The arrangement allowed the octet to spend more time and tap a broader creative community than ever before, resulting in their most ambitious work to date. Janeway cites a disparate range of influences that wove their way into the writing for ‘The Alien Coast’, from Greek mythology and dystopian sci-fi, to works of art like Bartolomé Bermejo’s Saint Michael Triumphs over the Deviland 17th-century Italian sculpture, to colonial-period history books.

The full music video for ‘The Last Dance’ debuted last month and was directed by Machete Bang Bang (Coldplay, Jeff Goldblum, Evan Rachel Wood). Says Janeway: “The juxtaposition of dancing while facing certain doom is what “Last Dance” is all about. Like dancing through a Mad Max scene. So naturally the video had to be a dance video.” The band also recently shared the song and video for ‘3000 AD Mass‘, a raw, explosive track driven by Janeway’s vocal roar that sets the tone for the album.

They were the first-ever musical performance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, were asked to do a rare encore by David Letterman and were nominated for a Daytime Emmy for their appearance on CBS Saturday Morning.
