The Alabama Lovesnakes was formed in 2006 in Karlstad, Sweden, during the recording of Claes Nilsson’s country project ”The Wheels”.
Late nights in the studio aroused an irresistible feeling in the band that just had to break loose – with the blues. Twelve years down the road, the band is still made up of the same members, and has logged countless miles and gigs all over Sweden, Norway, Estonia and France. The band has been a regular headliner at Sweden’s largest blues festival, Åmåls Blues Fest, for twelve years in a row and they attract great attention wherever they play.
The members of the band are vocalist and guitarist Claes Nilsson, bassist Fredrik Nilsson, and drummer Henrik Gillgren. The repertoire consists mainly of trio-based music and the band’s sound mixes elements of blues from both Chicago and Texas, combined with a rough Nordic edge, which adds a significant element to the band’s attitude and groove.
The band has released three full-length albums: “Nasty Weather” (2013), “Everybody’s Gotta Go” (2016) and “III” (2018).
Their latest album, “III”, was recorded during the spring of 2018 and was released by On the Hill Recordings in August 2018. It is available worldwide at The album contains ten tracks of original music and is receiving rave reviews.
