“Bands should go see Almost Kings and take notes on how a live show is done. They make 95% of bands I've seen in the last 3 years look lazy.”
“*Almost Kings voted Creative Loafing's Best Rock Act out of Atlanta in 2011*”
“Hard working would be an understatement! This band deserves the national stage, and many other fans like me would say the same. Always loyal to the AK street team and fans who follow! I've had the pleasure of working with Boze and the AK crew on quite a few DJ gigs, and their energy and crowd presence is always intense! All who attend will be standing; I've seen firsthand what they are capable of...”
"I have seen these guys come a long way in the past few years, and now they are finally getting national recognition for their ingenuity in combining multiple genres like rap, hip hop, ska, and alternative rock... They are a good example of what happens when you mix volatile styles together -- an explosion of in-your-face, truly innovative music. They are really a band that is making their own mold by taking all of their varied musical influences, mostly rock and hip hop, and making it uniquely theirs, and they own it...Its simply great music. It doesn't allow you to stand still, but forcibly draws you and the crowd into cohesive musi cal mayhem. Truly one of the best live acts touring right now anywhere. If you doubt that, go see a show and try and keep your horns down ... good luck!"
“This band is amazing and deserves the opportunity to show the world the talent they possess. AK has never disappointed at any show I have attended. They are one of the few bands that maintain loyalty to their fanbase no matter how big they get. Their dedication to the fans is second to none.”
"The stage performance is just unbelievable. I don't know where all of the energy comes from. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to watch the band grow. They opened for several bands at Off the Wagon (the former downtown Montgomery rock club) and quickly grew into a band that needed to headline a show. I know they are recording a new album and I look forward to watching them grow into the success they certainly deserve."
“There are a few obvious bands that have made their mark in music history and most of them can be found in the Music Hall Of Fame. But, what about the bands that are starting something new? What about the bands that have started a movement that is so new and fresh, that you can’t help but to be drawn in? That’s where Almost Kings from Atlanta, Georgia comes in. This quartet managed to independently record and produce their first album, Filthy Nice. That in and of itself is a huge milestone. Most bands are dependent on the big name companies to do that, whereas Almost Kings took it upon themselves to do so, learning the necessary process as they went. They have even been described as a “self-sufficient machine” by a few record label representatives, a title not easily earned. In less then two years, they have also managed to find themselves on iTunes, which is another feat that is not easily attainable.”
“Almost Kings is a fitting name..was a full house ready to see them perform. Worth the money. The most entertaining group of the night..full of energy from first song to last..full of originality. The people that came out to see them wanted to have fun. Mission accomplished. Headliner material.”
“Almost literally brought down the house.. something to behold, live..they certainly know how to work a stage...Explosive energy & empowering and infectious hooks characteristic of many of their songs can be chanted along by listeners.”
“An album you sing along to in your car..genuine messages & reflections, but no depressing whoa is me vibes. This is a positive and playful album. Most songs deliver, making this album not bought for one song, but worthy of your wallet...This album is a fun and catchy debut for Almost Kings.”
