The Strokes, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys and Foster The People are just some of the bands falling in love with Alabama Shakes, they tell NME.

As part of an exclusive feature with the band in this week's issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now, the Athens, Georgia's string of celebrity fans tell us how why they're rooting for the planet's most exciting band.

"There's something about the spirit of this band that makes me want to drop everything and hitchhike across the country on a train with a guitar and a bottle of whiskey," Foster The People's Mark Foster commented.

The Vaccine's Justin Young agreed, adding: "It's just raw power….You don't need gimmicks, good songs are enough."

To read the rest of the interview with Alabama Shakes in which they talk about the inspiration behind their debut album 'Boys & Girls' – plus interviews with the likes of The Strokes, Jack White and Alex Turner on the band - pick up this week's issue of NME.

Alabama Shakes are playing at this year's T In The Park, which is taking place July 6-8 in Balado Park, Kinross. To check the availability of T In The Park 2012 tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
