St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ The Alien Coast Out Today (ATO Records) + New Live Performance Video 




“Exceptional…their most musically adventurous to date. Think Al Green paired with the atmospheric grandeur of Pink Floyd and a dash of Outkast funk” - Garden & Gun


January 28, 2022­­— St. Paul & the Broken Bones have released The Alien Coast—their fourth studio album and first for ATO Records. The Birmingham, AL 8-piece made a return appearance to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, performing lead single “The Last Dance” live at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Tomorrow they will perform two songs on CBS Saturday Morning, marking the band’s 4th time on the show (with a previous appearance earning them a Daytime Emmy nomination). Lead singer Paul Janeway will also be interviewed by NPR’s All Things Considered this weekend, he appeared on longtime fan Elton John’s Rocket Hour radio show, and the album was featured Tuesday on NPR Music’s #NowPlaying.  

Watch their performance of “The Last Dance” on The Late Show here:

They’ve also released a new live performance video of title track “Alien Coast.” Watch here:

St. Paul & The Broken Bones’ previous three albums have debuted on the Billboard 200 and they are just getting started on what will be a tremendous 2022. A 50+ date international tour launches soon with highlights including their biggest NYC show ever at the Beacon Theater on March 11, plus a co-headline run with Fitz and the Tantrums in June. The Alien Coast is also being featured on Spotify’s Times Square billboard throughout the weekend and the album’s songs have been highlighted on a growing number of key playlists in the U.S. and around the globe.    

The most adventurous release yet from this ever-evolving musical powerhouse, The Alien Coast is a convergence of soul and psychedelia, stoner metal and funk. According to Janeway, “This album was birthed through the idea of falling asleep in a hotel and having a sequence of nightmares, then waking up and missing home so badly.” In creating the ultra-vivid dreamscape threaded through The Alien Coast, the band’s chief lyricist drew inspiration from such disparate sources as Greek mythology, dystopian sci-fi, 17th-century Italian sculpture, classic paintings by Bermejo and Picasso, and colonial-period history books.

The band has shared a number of previews of the new album leading up to release day, including “Love Letter from a Red Roof Inn,” “Minotaur” and “The Last Dance.” Produced by Matt Ross-Spang, The Alien Coast is the first album the band has recorded in its hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. 

St. Paul & the Broken Bones is: Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass), Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone), and Amari Ansari (saxophone).

Praise for The Alien Coast 

"A jarring, inventive, exciting, and compelling album that deserves and rewards multiple listens. Its creativity and complexity sketch out innovative new paths for this band…If ‘The Alien Coast’ is any indication, we are in for boundary-defying joy in the future" - PopMatters

“No one wants to think about annihilation when they’re engaging with art to find respite from annihilation, but The Alien Coast’s fluctuations in tone are so rewarding to confront that they make the record’s message that much easier to absorb" Paste

"Audacious, unexpectedly experimental music that is daring and adventurous, in an era where repetition is too often the norm" Holler Country 

“It’s an interesting tussle to observe as Janeway warbles back and forth between redemption and shakin’ it on the dance floor. But in the end, there’s only one way out. Screw it. Get up off your knees and let’s dance” - No Depression

St. Paul and the Broken Bones are constantly evolving and the fearless band goes with what inspires them…on ‘The Alien Coast’ that covers a little bit of everything” - Glide
