Following their new album release, Frontier Ruckus are coming to Brighton.
The Michigan band have just released their long awaited fifth album Enter The Kingdom and will be coming to Brighton’s The Prince Albert on 14th March.
The latest record mixes sixties folk rock with nineties power pop and was produced in Nashville by Wilco drummer Ken Coomer.
Songwriter Matthew Milia explained that the album is a depiction of his father losing his job and therefore having to rely on disability cheques to retain their childhood home. This combines with Anna Burch’s soft harmonies, David Jones on the banjo and Zachary Nichols on the trumpet to create the folk/pop sound.
The band was formed by Milia and Jones whilst they were in high school. When they graduated they expanded the band, including Nichols and Burch. Their first record was a self-released EP named I Am The Water You Are Pumping, which became available in 2006. Since then they have released 5 albums.
The group are playing six dates in the UK: York, Glasgow, Northampton, Bristol, London and Brighton. On 14th March they will play at the Prince Albert from 8pm. Tickets are available online for £11.50.
