The Alternate Routes

The four piece country-tinged New England rockers The Alternate Routes join us in Philadelphia on January 10th for a Free at Noon performance at World Cafe Live.

Last month the band put out its first new music in three years, a single called "Nothing More" that was written in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, CT. The song was released in support of the Newtown Kindness non-profit.

The Alternate Routes' third full-length album, Lately, was released in 2010, and it plans a follow-up album for lter this year. Its winter tour takes it to Boot and Saddle in South Philly on February 7th, but you can catch them at Free at Noon downstairs at World Café Live on January 10th.

Recent Release: Nothing More (feat. Lily Costner)
Release Date: September 30, 2013
