Front continues to hope you'll take a listen to his new album, Solved. Because it is new! And kind of awesome! It somehow remains in the top 40 at Amazon's hip-hop mp3 albums chart, and is readily available on your iTunes. You may also hear it on Spotify, where Front earns about a ten-zillionth of a cent per play.
The tour keeps rolling! Santa Cruz tonight, Los Angeles tomorrow, then Phoenix, then the whole darn United Kingdom. See below or peruse the gig calendar.
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.
