Saturday, June 9: The Glacial Speed

The Glacial Speed  performs Saturday, June 9 at the Milwaukee Record Stage.

The Glacial Speed formed in 2014 in Milwaukee, when singer/guitarist Ashley Altadonna, and bassist, Mike Carey, began collaborating after nearly a decade hiatus from their former band, New Blind Nationals.

During that hiatus, Altadonna transitioned her gender identity from male to female.

They eventually brought on drummer Emily Agustin (The Maybenauts) and guitarist/keyboardist, Christopher Van Gompel (IfIhadaHifi) to round out their line-up. They began playing shows around the Midwest the following summer.

Their first EP, “New Wilderness” was released at the beginning of 2017. That May they contributed the song “Forgone Conclusion” to “UNPRESIDENTED: DIY vs. Donald Trump” protest compilation. Their second EP, “Between the Lines” is scheduled to be released sometime in summer of 2018.

Musically, The Glacial Speed combines elements of indie rock, folk, and noise rock to create a sound all their own.
