It was in June when I first reported on Nine Black Alps and their resurrection of Nirvanaesque sounds. Now, with an upcoming show in Dublin, Ireland, the band from Manchester has made quite a dent on the UK and US music scene.
Nine Black Alps take their name from a Sylvia Plath poem, and their debut album Everything Is was recorded in Los Angeles by Beck producer Rob Schnapf. They have been compared to both The Pixies and Black Sabbath and have opened up for Kaiser Chiefs and Weezer.
Having wrapped up their American tour dates earlier this month, Nine Black Alps will rock Belfast and Cardiff after their Dublin Performance.
