Shoplifting 4 Jesus is a 2011 album by British acid-house band, Alabama 3. It was released on 7 November 2011 through Hostage Music Ltd and features no singles yet. It was released in the same year as their album There Will Be Peace..., an acoustic album.

Recording and touring[edit]

Shoplifting... was recorded at Jamm Studios, Brixton, in the summer of 2011. The band embarked on a slightly different course while recording: the majority of the songs featured on the album have a more electronic sound, as well as more hip-hop and reggae influences. It is also the first album released by the band not to feature Harmonicist and Programmer Piers Marsh (The Mountain of Love). Marsh left the band in late 2010 for unknown reasons, although his departure is not definite as he still contributes to Alabama 3's Facebook page and is working on solo projects with L.B. Dope and Devlin Love, who herself is absent from this album.

The song "Wrong is Right" samples "Ace of Spades" by Motörhead.
