For Immediate Release – (New York, NY – 2011) – A-Alikes release single "Bridges to Nowhere" off forthcoming album Us Against Them.

Known for their politically-rooted lyrics, Occupy Wall Street was the appropriate backdrop for the "Bridges to Nowhere" video shoot capturing the sign of the times and radical change for which the revolutionary-spirited hip-hop group is known. "Bridges to Nowhere" was produced by the late DJ Metaphysic [June, 2011 passing], who also produced for such artists as Immortal Technique, Dead Prez and Action Bronson to name a few.

A-Alikes branched off into film after the release of their last album I Eat You Eat [2006] with "Ballot or the Bullet" documentary chronicling President Obama's election [screened countrywide and abroad, 2008]. Ness, one half of the A-Alike duo, cites DJ Metaphysic as the catalyst for completing the album and further attests, "Us Against Them is about a world in transition… it's about conflict, it's about community, it's about us and it's about them."

The video shot by Exile Ramirez, features Afaya (also featured on previous lp I Eat You Eat), as well as spoken word poet, J. IVY (featured on Kanye West's first project) and cameo appearance by Russell Simmons.

A-Alikes' involvement in Occupy Wall Street was reported in Huffington Post article:

From music to the big screen, A-Alikes remain steadfast in their advocacy for political freedom and progression. Stay tuned for more videos by A-Alikes in coming weeks.

Us Against Them will be available on iTunes and the first quarter of 2012.
