Alabama Shakes Take 'Boys & Girls' on World Tour, Hit Up Toronto

Alabama Shakes Take 'Boys & Girls' on World Tour, Hit Up Toronto
Southern soul/rock combo Alabama Shakes will be releasing their debut LP, Boys & Girls, on April 10 through MapleMusic/ATO Records, so it's only fitting that the Athens, AL-based outfit will be hitting the road in support of the album.

The lengthy outing begins this month in the UK, where the band will play in London before returning to North America in March and April. This leg will include a Toronto gig on April 17. After that, it's back across the ocean for more shows in the UK and Europe before they return to the U.S. once more for some festival dates in May and June.

Listen to the Boys & Girls cut "Hold On," plus the bonus track "Heavy Chevy," in the widget embedded at the bottom of the page.
