Australian Band Alpine Announces U.S. Tour Dates; Includes New York and Los Angeles

Related: alphine, tour dates

A Is For Alpine, the debut album from the lauded Australian outfit Alpine, will be released stateside May 21 on Votiv. The new release follows Alpine's 2010 Zurich EP which earned critical praise with The Guardian describing the group as "hands down the best Aussie band we've heard all year." A Is For Alpine's first single "Hands" has already garnered critical acclaim from Pitchfork, with The Fader calling it "boredly erotic." The new video for the track "Seeing Red" sees the six piece literally launch themselves into space, and can be streamed/shared at http://noisey.vice.com/music-video-premieres/alpine-seeing-red.  The band, who recently won the prestigious Age EG award for "Album of The Year," are set to embark on a U.S. tour in early 2013.

Alpine is Phoebe Baker and Lou James (dual vocals), Christian O'Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keys) and Phil Tucker (drums). The new album was recorded in Melbourne with producer DAnn Hume who helped the band experiment with sounds and textures. Of the record Lamb notes, "We wanted to represent the different sides of our music, so there's some sad moments, some dancey moments, some rocking out and lots of harmonies." No strangers to the benefits of shared ideas and the collaborative process, Alpine's own methods for song writing reflect the strong and respectful working relationship they had with Hume. Baker describes the new album as the band's "innocent and not so innocent explorations through our twenty-something emotions."

Since forming, Alpine have toured extensively with the likes of Kimbra, Sia, Cloud Control, The Jezabels, The Naked And Famous and Matt Corby. Additionally, they've appeared at festivals worldwide including SXSW, Splendour In The Grass, Southbound and Falls Festival.
