“Enter the Kingdom” is the new album by Detroit indie-folk band Frontier Ruckus which we reviewed last week here and is due out on 17th February in the UK via Loose. It’s their fifth and arguably most lush record to date, exploring the struggles of modern day American suburbia. “It’s a literal description of his father losing his job and relying on disability cheques in order to survive, talking of the disintegration of American dream, growing up in the 90s, delving into the darkness but balanced by a sense of humour.” And God do we need a sense of humour at the moment. Anyway you can catch them parading their suburban wares across the UK next month at any of the places below, with more to be announced.
