Hailing from New Munster, WI, The Almas are coming into 2023 swinging for the fences! This female-fronted 4pc hard rock band is one of the hardest-working underground bands in the US. Touring consistently year round, love for the fans and their commitment to one another keeps them striving toward what they love.
Crystal Teigland [lead vocalist],
Frank Slifka [founding member/lead guitarist],
Josh Sukowski [guitarist], and
Andrew Ehredt [drums].
Through guitar-driven licks, road dog attitudes, and a high-energy, professional live performance, The Almas showcase the truest essence of Rock n’ Roll with a modern twist! After working with Kile Odell [#1 Active Rock charting producer], The Almas are able to bring their vision to life on their newest EP ‘The Almas II’.
In 2022 alone, the band has covered over 39,000 miles across the United States and just shy of 100 shows in a still recovering country.
“The existence of this band has always been about helping each other” Frank explains, “whether it’s through inspiration, a positive message, or simply creating a fun, entertaining environment where people can get away from life’s problems.”
Since forming in 2016, the band has released a self-titled EP and two full-length albums ‘Back To Bad’ and ‘Truth Sells’. In promotion of their music, the band has performed with artists such as Saliva, Buckcherry, Royal Bliss, Plush, Saving Abel, Eva Under Fire, Wayland, and touring with Smile Empty Soul.
The Almas are well known for their undying commitment to mental health awareness, including their support of numerous Veteran events, specifically Rock2Stop22. This Music Festival is aimed to raise awareness about the alarming rate of suicide among our returning home Veterans.
The Almas exists for its fans, because of its fans.
The Almas are proudly partnered with the following companies:
InEarz, Centent Cymbals USA, Scorpion Percussion, GHS Strings, WB Gear, SJC Drums
Their brand new single “Cage” is available today on all streaming platforms and will be going to Rock Radio on February 7th.
