North Carolina-based progressive pop-punk band Frontside is back with their new single “Einstein Killed Me”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Walter Stanley of Frontside shares about the single: “’Einstein Killed Me’ is about the conflicting feelings one goes through knowing that you need to break things off with a significant other yet dread having to do it. It’s a sonically fun track that we are excited to finally get to share with everyone.”
The single comes off of Frontside’s forthcoming five-track EP, Closer to Closure, due out in 2021 via Revival Recordings.
It can be tough to find like-minded musicians in a small town like Wilson, NC. Luckily for Frontside, they were able to cultivate a long-term musical bond at a pivotal point in their adolescence. In 2008, the band came together with the common goal to create music that would not only be catchy for any listener, but would also satiate their urge to add a more technically impressive dimension to their songs.
After a number of small independent releases, they began to gain traction locally with the release of their EP Cheers and Fears From The Past Year in 2013. They went on to tour the east coast extensively, and were also afforded the opportunity to open for acts such as He Is Legend, Finch, and Maps & Atlases.
With the release of another EP, You, Of All People, in 2016, Frontside began to pick up more steam, and in February 2018, the band combined the two EPs and released their first full-length album, Essentially, Eventually. Moving into 2020, Frontside was prepped to continue pushing their music and take the band to the next level. They recorded a new EP, Closer To Closure, which consists of 5 songs that the band had written prior to CAFFTPY, though they have been rearranged and re-recorded to match the sonic standards the group now holds. At the beginning of the summer, the band signed with NC-based record label, Revival Recordings, and are gearing up to release Closer To Closure in early 2021.
