Michigan folk rockers, Frontier Ruckus have announced their fifth studio album, Enter The Kingdom. The record, the band’s first since 2014’s Sitcom Afterlife, is due out on February 17th.
The band, made up of Matthew Milia (vocals and guitar) and David Jones (banjo), Zachary Nichols (brass, musical saw, melodica) and Anna Burch (vocals and bass guitar), have also shared a brand new video for the album track, ’27 Dollars’. Watch, below.
Recorded in Nashville with founding Wilco drummer Ken Coomer, Enter The Kingdom sees the band mixing their diverse influences of 60s folk rock and 90s power pop, into a truly poignant, accessible tonic of sadness and sweetness.
Talking about the new track, vocalist Matthew Milia says, “While I was writing the songs for Enter the Kingdom, a lot of the subject matter was rather heavy. ‘27 Dollars’ was sort of an escapist reaction against that, allowing myself to indulge in classic power pop tricks that are designed to make the listener feel good. But like a great Big Star song, it’s really about an underlying unfulfilled longing that the pop sensibilities hopefully complement and magnify.”
Enter the Kingdom is due out on February 17th via Sitcom Universe (USA)/Loose Music (UK/EU). Pre-order it here.
