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 a 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 2017, Frontside began to pick up more steam and caught the attention of industry “professionals”. In February 2018, the band combined the two EPs and released their first full-length album, Essentially, Eventually. Moving into 2020, the band signed with NC-based record label, Revival Recordings. They released their new EP, Closer to Closure, in February 2021 consisting of 5 songs that the band had written prior to CAFFTPY, though they have been rearranged and re-recorded to match the sonic standards that the group now holds.
