The title of Alberta Cross' new album, "Songs of Patience is," in many ways, literal. "It's been three years since we last released a full-length album," says singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee, a Swedish-born musician who has spent a big part of his life abroad in London and now Brooklyn, NY. "It was a crazy ride that ended on a positive note. Three band members and five producers later, the record is now ready." The highs and lows of the band's journey raised a grander set of ideas, infusing the disc's title with additional universal meaning. After touring extensively on their debut, Broken Side Of Time, with bands like Them Crooked Vultures, Oasis, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and stopping at festivals like Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, Alberta Cross headed to an old, abandoned house in the middle of nowhere near Woodstock, NY. There, they braved the freezing winter and embraced a sense of the building's haunted past to envision ideas for a new record. Initially, the motivation was to get back to the songwriting quality of the band's 2007 self-produced EP The Thief & the Heartbreaker - a blurry forethought that would later become clearer.
