Alice Donut is a punk rock band from New York City. They formed in 1986, disbanded in 1996, only to reform in 2004. The band toured relentlessly, and then, after their 1000th live performance, the members decided to take a break to pursue other projects. Theirs is a mixture of hard rock, punk, grunge and post-punk, often punctuated with brass instruments. Many of the members are traditionally or even classically trained musicians, but rarely in the instruments they play in the band.
