Atlanta natives Algiers will be performing their experimental rock at The Roxy on September 28 in support of its latest self-titled album released in June this year. The band is composed of vocalist/guitarist Franklin James Fisher, bassist Ryan Mahan and guitarist Lee Tesche. Their sound has been described as “dystopian soul” due to its somber mood.
The trio began rehearsing and playing shows together, combining their various influences and coming up with a hybrid sound of their own that also included dub, punk, and Afro-funk. Though all three went to various schools overseas, they stayed in touch via email, and worked together over the internet to discuss music, influences and politics.
Their first single, Blood,” was recorded in studios in London and New York, and released in 2012 in a limited pressing of 500 copies. It sold out quickly and the band drew critical notice for high-energy live performances, as their unique hybrid sound. To experience their high-octane shows, check them out at The Roxy next month.
