BALA​ (Spain) are Anxela and Violeta, a guitar and drums duet with a very personal style.

Their sound reminds the intense rock bands of the 90s, with a mixture of influences ranging
from grunge to punk or stoner rock. To all this we add two very different voices.
After being part of some Galician underground musical projects, BALA starts before the
summer of 2014. After a very good reception, they give around 20 concerts in Galicia and
several cities of Spain between September and December of that year .
On late November they recorded their first album at Montealto Studies (A Coruña). 7 tracks
recorded live and mastered by the renowned Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Sepultura,
In 2015 they followed with a flurry of activity, giving about 50 concerts, among which there
are several renowned festivals: WOSINC (Santiago de Compostela), Nordestazo (A Coruña)
She's the Fest (Valencia), EmaRock (Aretxabaleta) ,. ..
On June they released their first music video, and on September they finally published their
first album with Spanish label Matapadre, Human Flesh, firstly released in Rockdelux. It had
a very good reception, being sold out just five months later.

Their presence in music media became habitual (Neo2, Ruta 66, Rockdelux, Staf,...) and
tickets for many of their concerts started to be sold out.
At the end of 2015 they appeared on many lists of the best of the year for many publications:
Rockdelux, Mondosonoro, Hipersonica, Binaural, La Voz de Galicia,...).
They begin 2016 premiering a new video clip and traveling to London and Bristol, where they
offered 3 concerts, again with a very good reception.
They continue the year traveling all over the country again, and from June they begin to visit
many of the most recognized festivals in Spain and Portugal: O Marisquiño, Atlantic Fest,
SonicBlast, Ignition, Keroxen (Tenerife), Aloud Music Fest Barcelona),...
They are also selected to participate in the well-known Monkey Week in Seville, where they
offer a total of three concerts.
They also get involved in the circuit of GPS concerts to present their new album in 2017.
In October they get the first place in the prestigious musical contest of the Provincial Council
of A Coruña, winning a prize of 3,000 euros.
In November they travel to Barcelona and Sant Feliu de Guixols to record their second
album, Lume, in Ultramarinos Costa Brava Studio with the great Santi García: 9 tracks that
are far from their first work, this being much more intense, and experiencing for the first time
with Galician and Spanish.
With this new album, released in early March, they grow up really fast and begin a tour that
takes them across three continents, visiting Japan and Australia, in addition to many corners
of the peninsula.
During the summer they play at worldwide famous festival Resurrection Fest, among others
around Spain and Portugal like Milhoes de Festa, Armadiña, WoodRock,...
After summer they keep playing at some festivals and venues, and they receive a very good
new: they are selected to Keychange project, whith which they will travel to some of the most
important international festivals.
With some other international plans and a third album on mind, there’s no doubt that the
band will keep growing up during the next years.
