With "For the Baby Doll," the Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra commemorates 25 years of making music that's always inventive yet always connected to history. The sound is a celebration of rock 'n' roll itself.

Packaged as a 36-page book of stories and photographs, "For the Baby Doll" charts Tremulis' journey from Chicago to New York and back again, from innocence to experience and back again, with R&B honkers and glam-rock strutters, like a cross between Southside Johnny and Mott the Hoople. Opener "Pitiful" has a bluesy toughness, all horns and hot guitar licks, while "Everybody Here" explores the psychedelic funk of Prince and "Lost Without You" shifts from a charging Clash rocker into something almost operatic: "If I should die tonight, if it's my final hour, please know that every word I've sung is true." Closer "Walk in the Sun" ties the various threads of the album together in a moment of pure, Spectorish melody.

"For the Baby Doll" is that rare concept album that tells a story, in a sound as expansive as its themes, and yet, because it has a wild rock 'n' roll heart, it never loses sight of its ultimate purpose: making a connection with a listener.

"For the Baby Doll" will be released on June 22, 2013.
