Song Appears on Parlour Tricks, Available February 24th / Band Features Derek Archambault of Defeater
LISTEN TO THE NEW ALCOA TRACK, "ALL DOLLED UP"
Listen to the first track to surface from Parlour Tricks, titled "All Dolled Up", now on AltPress.com.
The sophomore full-length from Alcoa, Parlour Tricks, arrives upon a very new and invigorating chapter in Derek Archambault's life. The singer and guitarist, who also fronts the rising hardcore/punk band Defeater, has had an intense time since Alcoa's 2013 debut Bone & Marrow; he got married, for one thing; for another, he had major surgery with a hip replacement after a debilitating injury. After a successful campaign on crowd-funding site PledgeMusic (resulting in the recently released covers EP, Thank You), he had the imminent surgery, got back on his feet, and immediately began working on new music with both Defeater and his alt-rock/country-leaning Alcoa. Recording near his home, in Portsmouth, NH, provided a warm and familiar environment with bandmate and engineer Mike Moschetto, etching out a slightly twangy and honest sound with shades of wistful, jangly 90's alternative rock acts.
