He plays many shows in the USA, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Poland, Ireland, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
In March/April 2013, The Alex Carlin Band was all over Russia. The tour was called The All Russia Meteor Tour since it went like a meteor through Siberia, Surgut, Stalingrad and Sochi, as a real meteor was meteorizing and destroying the klub in Chelyabinsk where they were scheduled to play (in the Ural Mountain region). The lads made it back to Moscow in one piece.
In September/October 2013, April 2014 and October 2014, they continued to tour to the same areas of Ural, Siberia, and Black Sea – in April 2014 they called it the “Crimea and Punishment Tour”.
Alex played a special solo concert tour in December 2013/January 2014 in Rostov, Volgograd, Saratov, Ekaterinburg, Tiumen, Omsk and Krasnodar, and in the Caucasus Mountains in Ossetia/Russia near Chechnya in the town of Vladikavkaze. This was his Russian Winter Tour. It was only minus 35 degrees in Omsk. But it was hot in Ukraine. Alex played in Dontetsk, and in Kiev Alex stopped off at Maidan to check out the revolution there on 19 January. It was peaceful… until a few hours after he left to go to the train back to Krakow…then all hell started to break loose.
Alex has written many songs together with Giennek Loska and Makar Makarevich. Giennek put 15 of them on his cds – their song “Bad Whiskey Bottle” is on the “Rocktales” cd. Gienek won 100,000 zlotys as first prize in the Polish national talent search television show “X – Factor”.
In 2009, in Radomsko, at Klub Bourbon Street, Alex broke the Guinness Book of World Records “Longest Concert Solo Artist” record – he played 32 hours
Back in the States, Alex was a member of Psycotic Pineapple, The Rubinoos, and The Malakas.
