The band released their last Album “Arrows” in 2018 Produced, Recorded & Engineered by Brendan Donnelly. “Arrows” is an evolution in the ALB sound mixing rage and tenderness in the song writing with high standards of musicianship.

Press Clips for A Little Bitter:
“ALB’s sound contains a dark, dense, restrained fury topped off with big beefy riffs which in turn are underpinned by a massive bass tone, while the songs contain the right combination of intensity and melody combined with a growling, grunting groove.” Mark Ashby – Planet Mosh

“Song writing subtleties, sheer live excellence, and searing musicianship from Jonny, Seamus and Darren are the key to A Little Bitter and they are much under-rated given their excellent take on hard rock, metal and well-crafted music.” Jon – Belfast Metalheads Reunited

“great tone, great sound and great playing” Ciaran Tracey – MetalIreland.com
