Edmonton, Albertan rockers, Alleviate, play some straight-up rock and roll and are damned proud of that fact. Self-released on May 6th of this year, the quartet dropped their eleven-track album Aggressive Grace to high-praise and positive reviews thanks to its memorable sound and powerful lyrics. Well, today we’re pleased to help further their cause of ensuring that rock is never dead by offering a free download of the single “Handle”!

Lead vocalist and guitarist Chad Plamondon commented on the tune noting: “Like most songs, ‘Handle’ started out completely different than what it became. Originally we didn’t even think it would make the album. After relentlessly working on it we finally got what we were trying to get out of the song. The irony is the song is about being in a rut and it driving you mad.”
