Bologna, Italia // We Were Never Being Boring // Costello's 

Since its debut in 2011, the indie rock band altre di B - a vintage name that comes from the matches not included in the B leagues’ football betting - has secured a place in the flourishing scene of its hometown Bologna, mixing the inventiveness and the energy of post-punk combined with a strong euphoric dimension. The result is a nervous, surprising and jubilant rock. After numerous self-released issues containing the Panini® stickers of B league teams, the band released its debut album There’s a million better bands and began a long tour be- tween Italy and Europe. Following this release, the band integrated an array of synth keyboards, expanding their sonic hori- zons which led to the releases of the albums Sport (2014; self) and Miranda! (2017; Black Candy Records). Several tours between North America and Canada followed, as well as attend- ance at the international festival Primavera Sound, SXSW, Sziget and Europavox, and performing on Quelli che il calcio TV program. When this chapter concluded, altre di B spent most of their time in a converted barn as a rehearsal room, an environment that revolutionized their approach to songwriting and in- fluenced a new sound course, extracting a mixture of post-punk styles, jangle and twee. This circumstance, along with embellish- ments by collaboration with Luca Lovisetto (Baseball Gregg) and attitude of producer Bruno Germano, led to the new album, out on Spring 2021 (We Were Never Being Boring, Costello's). Altre di B were, are and always will be Giacomo, Andrea, Giovanni and Alberto.
