Formed at Leeds University in 2007 by friends Gwil Sainsbury, Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton, and Thom Green, Alt-J got their name from the Apple Mac keystroke for ?, their totem and the traditional scientific symbol representing "change." Their unique sound is a holdover from the university's prohibition on excess noise; to keep volume to a minimum, they didn't play bass or bass drums on their early tracks, leading to a sound that's simultaneously tight and ethereal. It's a sound they've taken to the top of the charts in their native UK, and they're looking to replicate that success in North America!
The band recently released their third studio album, Relaxer, with Cameron Knight taking over for Sainsbury, who left the band in early 2014 — and their upcoming Passion Pit Raleigh concert is your chance to hear songs like "Left Hand Free," "Hunger of the Pine," and "Every Other Freckle" live for the very first time! Lucky for you, BigStub has great tickets at all price levels, so whether you're looking to catch the band from front row center or something a little more economical, we've got you covered.
