After nearly two years off the road, Derek Archambault’s (Defeater) Americana outfit Alcoa will be bringing its barebones, bleeding heart folk to stages across the country with a gamut of East Coast and Midwest shows. Check out all the tour dates below.
What began as Archambault’s relief from the bareknuckle hardcore of Defeater has become a formidable roots outfit boasting two albums and a flurry of EPs and singles.
After nearly a decade of being relegated as a side project, Alcoa realized its current form in 2013, when Archambault enlisted a troop of collaborators (including his now wife, Alyssa Archambault) to create the band’s proper debut, Bone & Marrow.
Alcoa followed up the triumphant entrée with 2015’s Parlour Tricks, a thin-skinned, big band dive into the trials of illness, toxic relationships, and the thrill of new love. If Alcoa fans have learned anything from the band, it’s that good things come with time—this tour is no different.
See Alcoa on tour this spring and stay tuned for more news to come soon.
