Formed in 1986 after the demise of the Sea Beasts, a band at Columbia University. Ted Houghton, Tomas Antona, Dave Giffen and Tom Meltzer recruited drummer Stephen Moses and quickly found a substantial audience at CBGB. Guitarist Michael Jung soon replaced Meltzer, Austrian born Bassist Sissi Schulmeister joined the band in 1991. By 1991 the lineup had changed to Tomas Antona: lead vocals, Michael Jung: guitar, Richard Marshall: guitar, Stephen Moses: drums, Sissi Schulmeister: bass. This lineup recorded and toured relentlessly, eventually disbanding in 1996. Between 1988 and 1996 the band toured in the United States, Europe and Japan and played over 1000 shows, including a show at the Reading Festival in 1993.
In 2001 Alice Donut started recording and writing again and in 2003's Three Sisters, their first release after their hiatus, was recorded as a four-piece with Tom Antona on vocals, Michael Jung on guitar, Stephen Moses on drums and Sissi Schulmeister on bass.
Guitarist Dave Giffen rejoined the group for Fuzz, which was recorded in Brooklyn's BC Studio with longtime co-producer Martin Bisi, mixed and engineered by Joel Hamilton, and released on September 5, 2006.
In 2012 the album with the same title "Freaks in love" was released. Alice Donut still performs live on some occasions, like a show in 2014 in France and 2017 in Baltimore, MD at Ottobar.
On November 11, 2016 Tomas Antona stated on Facebook that Alice Donut are writing a new album. No completion or release date was given.
