Live: Algiers @ Temple (Athens, February 9th, 2019)

Exactly one year after their first performance in Athens, Algiers were back to Temple club for another incendiary dose of their rebellious gospel-punk.

Next to the familiar songs from their two previous albums, the band has added a few new songs to their set and their riotous sound suggests that we can expect another killer of an album in the near future.

The majority of the gig's set list was based on the band's latest LP, 2017' excellent "The Underside Of Power" and as was also the case in their previous gig here, the highlights included "Walk Like a Panther", "Cry of the Martyrs", "Cleveland" and the album's soulful title-track.

Hopefully next year Algiers will be here again to complete their hat trick and by that time they'll have unleashed their new album to the world. The signs are it's going to be awesome! 

Here's a taste of one of the new songs they played at their second Athens gig, plus "Cry of the Martyrs":
