Atlanta's the Booze channels the grit and attitude of late '60s/early '70s British rock, specifically the Rolling Stones.

Atlanta’s the Booze channels the grit and attitude of late ‘60s/early ‘70s British rock, specifically the Rolling Stones, but also acknowledge the blues roots of everything they play. With that in mind, the band toured as a support act and backing band for Muddy Waters Jr. last year. This year has seen the release of their latest album, At Maximum Volume on Underrated Recordings. The group has been steadily touring the new music, building a fanbase well beyond their Southeastern homebase with their pure rawk sounds. The Video Rahim-directed “Wild One” is the latest video and perfectly ties into that Stonesy raunch vibe.
