ALTRIBE is a four-member band. Based on the Blues and beyond that, their music has a lot of post rock, moody and psychedelic elements as well as lyrics that describe the state of the big city’s lonely man.
The composer Fiona Lambrides on vocals and the acoustic guitar, a voice that is related to the warm, doric, black voices of the blues. Apostolos Karatzas on the electric guitar, whose personal style and sound brings out the rock-psychedelic side of the band. Giannis Gardiclis on the electric bass, combines power and emotion in his grooves. The founder of the group, composer/lyricist Albert Panagiotopoulos on the drums, expresses the technique, the explosiveness and aesthetic simplicity that characterize Altribe.
In May 2017 the band released the digital single “Too Late to Come Back”, almost one year after their album “Spooky Train”.
Altribe have an official permission by The Rolling Stones’ publishing company, for recording their successful version of the song “Gimme Shelter”. They have also been awarded by A&R American companies (TuneHog, Taxi). They have reached #1 (locally & nationally) on the ReverbNation’s Top 10 Rock Charts. The British “Stencil” magazine and many Greek newspapers and magazines, as well, have featured extended overviews of the band. Songs and interviews of the band have also been hosted by fm and internet radios.
They have performed in many bars, stages and festivals in Athens, all around Greece and abroad, playing their original songs and selected covers.
With a different lineup in 2012, the band released a digital single with Warner Music and the album “”To Thavma” (FM records) with Greek lyrics, co-produced by Akis Golfidis. In March 2014 Altribe released the album “”Aphrodisiac” (aap).
