Alberteen is Ade Berry, Phil Shaw, Gareth Warde, John Rose.
They released their debut album It Felt Like Forever in 2008. Three quarters of the band were close friends at school in Nottingham and played together for fun for a couple of years. Then they grew up. Years later, at the funeral of a family member, they reunited and formed... Alberteen.

2008 and the band self-release their debut album It Felt Like Forever, a naive album of melodic literary songs but no indication of where they were heading. It was a start.

2010. Seminal British band Cornershop ('Brimful of Asha') picks up their song 'Girl and a Gun' and request to produce it, the band working with Tjinder Singh in their London studio.

'Girl and a Gun' was heard by The Fall / Ian Brown producer/writer Mike Bennett who included it on the '10 Years of the Rhythm Factory' CD with The Libertines, Pete Doherty and Art Brut. It gets airplay and attracts lots of interest in the band.

Alberteen are then invited to play the inaugural Headstock Festival on the BBC Stage last year with Ash, Field Music and Frightened Rabbit.Singer. Around the same time Phil Shaw has his best-selling 33/3 Patti Smith book 'Horses' published which attracted even more attention.

The new album Metal Book is out later in 2011

A thrillingly eccentric live band, previous supports have included Primal Scream
