This album is entirely acoustic and features Larry Love, Rock Freebase, Harpo Strangelove, Devlin Love, Aurora Dawn, Eliza Mellor (aka Eliza Strummer) and the ‘Soul II Soul’ string section, among others. Mixed by the grammy winning Mark Wallis.

'Not since Robert Johnson dropped thirty eight tracks in one night in a Minnesota hotel room, in 1938 and defined the blueprint for Delta Blues has the genre been so radically ‘fucked’ with. Alabama 3’s new album ‘There will be peace in the valley… when we get the keys to the mansion on the hill’ is back porch music for frontline people.'
11 original tracks plus the indomitable 'Love will tear us apart' guaranteed to draw you out of your rocking chair and into the 23rd Century and provide you with the necessary armour you need to get you through the Summer of Rage...'
Accompanying the Album is an exclusive short story written by Valleyman himself, Howard Marks - the legendary wit, raconteur and libertine.
Danny Markey renowned artist (by courtesy of Redfern gallery) provides the melancholic paintings that adorn the sleeve.
