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: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/14/occupy-the-hood-occupy-wall-street_n_1009850.html.

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 A-Alikes.net the first quarter of 2012.

Oxnard, CA native and frequent Madlib collaborator Dudley Perkins is back again with an hour-long documentary, Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U., detailing his career, the man behind the music, spirituality and much more.

Produced by Xylophone Films, during the documentary Dudley explains the confusion behind his Declaime moniker, and how his real name, Dudley Perkins, actually became his alter ego. "The name Declaime stuck to the point where a lot of people thought that was my real name," explains Dudley. "So when I told them my name was Dudley they thought I was playing a joke on them, so it turns out Dudley Perkins became the alter ego!"
