Since 2005 Altre di B has played hundreds of gigs all over Europe, carrying around a lively and energetic sound inspired by bands such as TV on the Radio and the Vines. After bringing the second album “Sport” to Sziget Festival, Ypsigrock Festival and to the West Coast of the United States for three DIY tours, Altre di B performed at Primavera Sound and SXSW Festival to present the forthcoming album “Miranda!”, where the punk spirit meets down tempo groove.
“Miranda!”, out on October 2017 (Black Candy Records), is a concept album and a tribute to Quirico Filopanti, the inventor of time zones. The single “Pungi” was launched by the website Post Literate Society, which had previously included Altre di B in its best of SXSW.
In 2014 the band released the video clip "Zoff", a song dedicated to the soccer World Champion and famed Italian goalkeeper Dino Zoff, who is also starring in the video. For this reason, Altre di B has been hosted in the Italian TV show "Quelli che il calcio" since 2015. Altre di B recently performed at Sziget Festival 2017, Mondo NYC Festival in New York City and will showcase again at SXSW in 2018.
