Aloha Release New Album, Play Grog Shop in April



Say hello to Aloha.

Atmosphere-soaked rockers Aloha, who used to call Cleveland home but are now spread out across the country, have a new album coming out on March 9.

Home Acres is their fifth LP, and judging by the two tracks recently posted on Brooklyn Vegan, the quartet appears to be heading in a less dense, and more dynamic, direction.

We've always considered Aloha one of Cleveland's most unheralded bands. Then again, it doesn't help that only one member still lives here, making it kinda hard to call them a "Cleveland band." Either way, Home Acres could end up being one of the band's best albums.

In addition to the new music, the band will be on the road throughout April. They'll play the Grog Shop on April 24. —Michael Gallucci
