The Neil Young and Crazy Horse inspired band Alberta Cross, are set to re-release their debut EP “The Thief & The Heartbreaker” later this month.

Previously described as “windswept, classic rock” by Uncut editor Allan Jones in his four-star rated review in 2007, the Anglo-Swedish songwriting partnership of Terry Wolfers and Petter Ericson Stakee borrows much from Young, Van Morrison and The Band – and the now out of print EP will be available on CD and to download from October 20.

Alberta Cross, now expanded to five members, have also been handpicked to support Oasis on some of their forthcoming UK arena dates, as Noel Gallagher is a longtime fan.

They are also due to play a one-off headline show in London on the 22nd.

The band are currently working on their full length debut album, due for release next Spring.

Alberta Cross play the following shows with Oasis:

Bournemouth BIC Arena (October 20, 21)
London Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen (headline show) (22)
23rd Cardiff International Arena (23, 24)
