The Almas Discusses Music and Touring All Around!

Rock n' rollers THE ALMAS have an EP as well as two full-length albums under their belts, with a handful of tours already lined up for this year alone. Much else is in the works as well, just wanting people to follow their music, dreams, and all else really. The band discusses of their music, touring plans and more below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band was formed in 2016. However Frank Slifka is the founder and only original member. The band is now comprised of Crystal Teigland (vocals), Frank Slifka (lead guitarist), Josh Sukowski (rhythm guitar), and Andrew Ehredt (drums) 

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

 The word originated from the Spanish word for ‘soul’. At the time of the band's formation, Frank was struggling with an alcohol addiction along with quitting his previous project. He was trying to find his “soul” hence the band name.  

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

The band is based out of a very small town in Wisconsin called New Munster. The music scene in the area however is anything but small. Plus the quality of music that is coming out of Wisconsin is nothing but superb. I would highly recommend checking out Lines Of Loyalty, Sanity Tragedy, and Embers Rise, just to name a few.  

4. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

The band has released an EP and two full length albums to date. People can expect strong female leads backed by rippin guitar licks and monster drums. We try to keep the music simple and honestly it's all just Rock n Roll.

5. Do you have any new music in the works?

We recently just released our newest single entitled ‘Cage’ of our newest EP. That EP however will not be available till late 2023. We will be releasing a few more songs from the EP in the coming months.

6. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

There are a number of tours lined up for the year. You can always follow our socials and keep up to date with all our upcoming shows. We are planning to tour in Alaska this summer which is something we have talked about for quite some time.

7. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Keep touring and meeting more people. We also have plans to record more music at the end of the year. We love being out on the road. We tend to be the best version of ourselves when we are doing what we love.

8. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

The band’s entire discography can be found across all streaming platforms. If you wish to buy a CD or other merchandise from us, you can directly do so on our website at 

9. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We are just normal people following our dreams, in hopes to help and inspire others to do the same.
