Concert tickets come with one free download of new album Parlour
at the door

“Wistful and jangly, Alcoa
knock this one right out of the park.” – Alt Dialogue

Riding the wave of the recently released Parlour Tricks,
Alcoa’s Derek Archambault is gearing up for a string of North American shows
this week.  Starting Thursday, Archambault will travel from Providence, RI out
to Michigan and back to the East Coast over the course of the following ten
days.  These tour dates mark his first of the year under the Alcoa moniker, a
project that he started in 2002 when he was listening to artists like Gram
Parsons, Elliot Smith, Rocky Votolato and Ryan Adams.  Alcoa took the backseat
to Archambault’s full-time band, Defeater, until 2012 when the debut full-length Bone
& Marrow
was released to great critical acclaim.  Now, Alcoa has
released its sophomore album Parlour
which once again pulls those alt-rock/country influences, but
with more diverse instrumentation and honed-in vocals from Derek’s wife, Alyssa
Archambault.  The result is an album more mature and multi-faceted and is an
absolutely gorgeous listen.  

Selected shows along this upcoming Alcoa tour – Providence,
Lancaster, Rochester, Toronto, Lansing, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, NJ, NYC, Long
Island, and Portsmouth – will be offering a free download of Parlour
in conjunction with ticket purchase.  The first 100 show-goers will
receive a download card at the door upon entry as a ‘Thank You’ for supporting
Alcoa on the road.  Check out all ticketing links below; download cards will be
offered at the door but purchasing advance tickets is encouraged as well.

Additionally, watch the recently-premiered music video for Alcoa’s
single “All Dolled Up” here
and keep up with the band on Facebook.
