Alpha Centauri was formed in Greeley, Colorado in 1971. The band performed its hard driving rock throughout the American Midwest for years opening for artists such as STYX and URIAH HEEP. With a fairly strong US following, the band moved to Canada where they began to write original material. The result was 1977’s long awaited eponymous debut on Salt Records.
With the release of the album came more concerts as well as several radio and television appearances including the Canadian TV special "Alpha Centauri In Concert" from 1978.

The band was then aiming for the UK, but management problems and road burnout led to the band returning to the USA, appearing on TV’s ’Rock and Roll America’. Alpha Centauri stayed on the road until 1983 when they finally broke up. In the ’90’s a resurgence of sorts occurred following a glowing review of their sole album in the International Encyclopedia of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal stating them as the "Worlds best undiscovered Pomp band".
70’s Hard Rock aficionados began scouring the globe for their only album and in 1995, was issued on CD. Nowadays a rare sought after gem in the collector’s market, Acid Nightmare thought it would be the right time to reissue this Hard Prog Pomp masterpiece on glorious vinyl. The record comes with insert and is limited to 400 copies.
