Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard Drops New Album with Thunderbitch
Published Sep 01, 2015Known for her explosive, soulful, awe-inspiring vocals as the frontwoman for Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard steals the spotlight when she steps on stage, and now she's looking to the share some of it with her side-project Thunderbitch.
Fans won't have to wait at all for the debut from the excellently named group, as they've just unexpectedly dropped a self-titled LP.
The band features members of Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Masks, and while they've been working together since 2012, this marks the band's debut full-length. You can stream it in its entirety at their official website.
