German retro rock duo from the Black Forest are back with their debut album “Demons Of The Mind”, which will be released on April 24th 2020. THE ALLIGATOR WINE deliver an intriguing mix of psychedelic organ sounds, distorted pads and thick synth basses! But they manage to wrap their unique vintage sound into highly catchy songs!
Check out the video to the first single “Shotgun” HERE!
The band comments:
“We can’t wait for the first single of our debutalbum! “Shotgun” comes with a stomping, shuffled disco groove that will make you wanna explode in a reptilian way! Lock up your daughters and grandma, the Alligator’s near!”

The Alligator Wine were founded in 2016 as an experimental Krautrock project by: Rob Vitacca (voice, organ, moog bass, percussion) and Thomas Teufel (drums, spooky voice)
Combining the vibes of experimental 70s music with a certain, modern pop appeal was the goal. Their unique instrumentation makes them stand out immidiately. Going for a distorted organ in a 100% guitar dominated scene and replacing the bass guitar with an analog synth was the key to their sound.
They released their first EP “The Flying Carousel”in 2018, followed by the first tour supporting “The Picturebooks”. “Demons of the Mind” is the culmination of everything they have done so far. Balancing between suicidal partymode and the deepest, melancholic moments, this album offers a variety of atmospheres that have never been presented like this.
