VineA is for ALPINE, B is for BUSY, and U is for USA!

Alpine and Ivy League Records are ecstatic to announce that they have just inked a deal with Votiv Records for the USA release of the band’s debut album “A Is For Alpine”. Fast building a name for themselves as a force to be reckoned with, the Votiv roster also includes We Are Augustines, Gaz Coombe (Supergrass), Imagineray Cities, and our very own Cloud Control, amongst others.

A Is For Alpine is set for a USA release January 2013, with college radio promotion and marketing campaigns set to begin later this month. Alpine caught the attention of the label with their glowing reviews from NYLON, The Fader, Pitchfork, Spinner and American Songwriter and their #1 album debut spot on Australian iTunes.

Says co-frontwoman Lou James: “We are super excited about the US release. The Votiv people came to all 10 of our SXSW shows and partied hard every night. They are a great team with a cool roster. We dig em!  We cannot wait to get back to America.”

The force of Alpine has seen them pin-balling around the country on their national album tour and there are no signs of slowing down yet!  After selling out two utterly bangin’ Oxford Art Factory shows last weekend, and Perth’s date at the Bakery, news to hand is that both shows at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne this weekend have also sold out!
