West coast! Front and the band are in your hills and valleys. San Francisco on Sunday (with a special opening set by Mike Lombardo), followed quickly by Santa Cruz and Los Angeles. Don't forget Phoenix on the 10th! It is KoL Con, which you should attend. But if you can't do that, just drop by the concert and pay at the door ($10).
Thanks to Seattle, Portland, and Boise for each of your uplifting evenings of raucus nerd-rap-concert-attendery.
Sept 15 through Oct 16: MC Front's in the UK with Wheatus and Math The Band! Wheatus (featuring Front's own keyboard superstar Vic-20) is kind enough to back the set, so this visit will feature no canned moozics in the nerdcore hip-hop department. Rejoice, anglos!
After England, Front's back to the homeland for a southern and eastern wrap-up of the tour. New confirmed dates are added to the gig calendar on the regular. Seek them there.
Front's new album, Solved, continues to be new, and an album. It inexplicably charted on the Amazon hip-hop charts, in the top 5 for a few days, and is still in the top 40. Sometimes Front rolls lucky.
It's the big day! MC Frontalot's fifth album, "Solved," is officially released. You can get the CD (with instant download) and listen to teaser tracks here, buy the download-only version (including 24bit FLAC) right here, get the imperfect-but-still-pretty-good iTunes encodings at iTunes (duh), or opt for the bargain-basement MP3-only version at Amazon. Expect to see it on all your favorite streaming and vending sites as soon as immediately.
Oh, and the first single remains a joyous ode to radio hooks, critical acclaim, Front's lack of both, and the occasional perfect roll of a D20. Video to debut super soon.
Speaking of albums that came out today, take a listen to Mink Car Cover, a They Might Be Giants tribute album benefitting the FDNY Foundation. Front's on there, doing Another First Kiss, and he's joined by all your favorite internet folks, including Hank Green, Shael Riley, Devo Spice, Tom Milsom, Marian Call, Beefy & Mustin, Molly Lewis, brentalfloss, Mike Lombardo, NBW, Aivi Tran, The Doubleclicks, Jonathan Mann, R_Garcia, and Hello The Future! Front's tallest Canadian friend Ryan North even did the art.
Front and company are brunching in Boulder today, then rolling up and down a bunch of mountains until they get to Seattle. What might draw them there? Maybe there's a convention or something.
Frontalot and company are westbound! Chicago, Minneapolis, Madison, Lincoln, and Denver loom in the immediate distance. Beyond them, PAX glimmers at the game map's corner, a mana well ensconced in emerald. Front rocks that particular exposition on the Friday night (8/26), as you may already know.
The band wishes to thank the boisterous and brilliant crowds who have already aided in rocking the heck out of Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Ft. Wayne, and Ann Arbor. Has the Solved tour already passed you by? Perhaps you need to be on the Mailing List!
To keep up with tour happenings, you might want to follow Front's Twattle, like him on Teh Bookface, mind Bl4k Lotus's Twubber, or check out Fifty-Six K's video parade (a daily dose of behind-the-scenery from YooToob sensation and current touring MCF keyboardist Mike Lombardo).
