The band make up for last time...

Nine Black Alps have a hectic live schedule for the release of their new single next week.

After being forced to release their album ‘Everything Is’ to virtually no promotion earlier this year after Sam Forrest was struck down with mumps, they’re making up for it with their new single.

Already looking like being their crossover hit, ‘Unsatisfied’ is released on Monday (August 8). To celebrate, they’re playing a string of instores which coupled with their UK tour will see them notch up 11 gigs in five days.
