Cold Fronts

September 15th at 7:00pm

“We had to become a new band,” says Joe Killian, drummer from the Philadelphia foursome, Cold Fronts. The process by which the garage rock outfit evolved since its 2015 album, FOREVER WHATEVER, was an active meditation on collaboration, kinship, and reflection. With its sophomore, full-length FANTASY DU JOUR out April 20th on Sire Records, the band – Craig Almquist (vocals/guitar), Max Steen (guitar), Alex Luquet (bass), and Killian – strikes a balance between vulnerability and rambunctiousness, reflection, and declaration.
