My name is Alex of the Detroit band alchalant. I failed to prepare a proper acceptance speech for 2012 Indie Music Channel Awards at the House of Blues, West Hollywood this past Sunday night. We came home tonight with an award for Best Alternative Band. So here it goes...
This award is particularly prestigious. It highlights the hard work, dedication, and antics of the entire group. -I would not be in this position without my band... Todd Errion and Christopher Shaun Hobbs. -I would also like to personally thank Mom, Dad, and my family for continued support, enthusiasm, and guidance. -Thank you Cheryl, for often being the voice of reason. For supporting your husband's passion for performing. -My best friend RJ Ritter. And Steve Brittain. For providing muscle, wheels, and operating audio/visual equipment for months out of the kindness of their hearts. -Thanks to our growing street team... The alchalant army (I will not list names to avoid offending anyone I may forget to mention). -Thanks to my mentors Eric DiBerardo, Tom Court, Dennis Tini, Steve Carryer, and Todd Thamer. You have all had part in shaping me into a business orientated musician. I am very humble and gracious for your time and encouragement in the past. -Thanks to all my peers. We are strengthening the Detroit rock scene together a step at a time.
We were also nominated for a slew of other categories including Album of the Year. We had an amazing trip, the city embraced our midwest demeanor and Detroit ROCK City temperament.

The new single GRAD SONG, will be released early this summer.
