-from Jackson, MS/Nashville, TN

-The sound of wind through the pines, bare feet brushing through leaves, snapping sticks like the spines of the weak. When we started we were small and strong at heart, five southern souls damned to speak the truth. But with this responsibility comes pain and loss. And as the years passed our numbers grew smaller, and there were four. This did not stop these brave soldiers of thought, keepers of truth. They were older now and their soft footsteps through the forest had grown louder and stronger. Like the dust filled hoof beats of a thousand wild horses, they layer sound like musket fire, their melodies bend and twist like train-tracks. A music shaped from the calloused hands and wrinkled faces of their fathers. They have walked through the fire wide-eyed and crazy, and came out enlightened. You cannot stop these men, your armies can’t cease their hands, dampen this thunder, or silence their tongues. We have trudged through the muddy swamps to freedom.

Our shoes are tattered and torn, but our feet are dry. As for our places in history, we will run naked through your streets before we sit decorated in your halls.

Cold Fronts
-from Philadelphia, PA
-Cold Fronts have shared stages with The Cribs, The Vaccines, The Districts, and more, while Almquist identifies FIDLAR, Wavves, The Orwells, and Mac Demarco as some of his favorite peer musicians. And there are elements of those acts in the sound of Forever Whatever, in addition to influence from older bands like The Strokes and Phoenix. Chiming guitars mix with cruising bass lines, drums punch, and Almquist’s vocals clip along joyfully, often hitting falsetto high notes before soaring into power choruses. His lyrics toe the line of mystery, with cryptic references to relationships of unknown size and shape, but the sing-along quality of the songs have the ability to connect to a mass audience—something that is sure to happen as the band gains more and more experience in different places. For Craig Almquist, Cold Fronts is an outlet to exercise his insatiable energy for creating. And learning to deal with all the “whatevers” in his world has only made him work harder and dream bigger. “I’m in this all for the long haul,” he says. “I’m really proud of Forever Whatever, and want to tour on it as long as possible, but in the meantime I want to make sure the next record is coming out in 2016. I’ve been making songs since I was 14, but it didn’t dawn on me until the last few years that what I really wanted to do with my life was write songs and perform them. I think that writing songs is the most important part of being in a band, effectively communicating a vibe. It’s fun to treat songs in the moment, not worrying about what other people think—is this song about them, or about this place, are my parents gonna be pissed off that I say ‘fuck’—I’ve learned not to filter myself, don’t censor yourself for anyone. With that I began writing a lot more, and it became a lot more fun.”
