Alpaca (ex-Baroness) set to release debut album

Official press release: Los Angeles/Brooklyn duo Alpaca announce their debut album, Demimonde, will be released this October via Robotic Empire. Comprised of vocalist Justin Nuckols and multi-instrumentalist Allen Blickle, Demimonde was recorded across locations in New York and the members' native Virginia. Much of Alpaca's material was initially created during arduous tour schedules for Baroness, the accomplished hard rock band for which Blickle drummed. The dance, pop, and melody-driven compositions Blickle crafted for Alpaca juxtapose with Nuckols' darker, groove-focused, and harmonic vocal explorations. Blickle and Nuckols (who also are ex-step brothers) hunkered down in Brooklyn during the winter of 2012-2013, expanding their mutual visions and perfecting mixes, ultimately finishing a body of work many years in the making. The end-result is a reflective and cinematic experience, musing in concert through cynicism, uncertainty, and optimism. Demimonde will be available via Robotic Empire in October 2013, and a teaser trailer can be viewed here:
