Alabaster is a female fronted pop-punk/powerpop group from Chicago, IL/ Seattle, WA. Alabaster pays tribute to both cities with their raw sound, and indie attitude. This sextet lives up to its pop-punk sensibilities with saccharine hooks, crunchy-driven riffs, and classic, fist-pumping drum work. The group radiates consistency, a cohesive band who knows what they want, and how to perform well together, which can be a challenge for a large group with such a wall of sound. As for their tunes, those who love the perfectly executed mix of lyrical melodies with a dash of guttural screams will find Alabaster an epic win. Their style is reminiscent of Elastica, an adrenalized L7 beating up on Paramore, with a Greenday / The Gits split. On their new release, “The Diary I Should of Burned…” all of the songs are loaded with intense builds, stops and starts, that will push and pull on your heart making your lips sneer Billy Idol style, and your head bob in agreement. Alabaster has accomplished much of their success by aggressively touring throughout the US playing such Festivals as Warped Tour, CMJ, and Bumbershoot. They are also currently in the finals to win a trip to London to join Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, and Pearl Jam for the Hard Rock Calling festival in Hyde Park London. So, if you want undeniably road tested punk, topped with sticky-sweet studs, check out Alabaster.
