we mention and talk about the new frontiers quite a bit on this blog (unapologetically), but just wanted to say a few quick things today about them.

their album mending is out in stores today. it's been available through itunes and at shows for a few months and was out in independent stores for a month (graywhale was the only one in salt lake) and is finally out today in full distribution (what the militia group was attempting to do here is still a mystery, one that has seriously hurt their reputation and could possibly cost them a few bands from their roster).

what do you say about an album that many people already have or have heard that you don't already know? it's easily one of my top five albums of 2008 (colour revolt's being the other so far) and is getting noticed (paste, daytrotter, absolutepunk.net have all taken an interest) for it's high quality. add to that the number of free downloads the band has made available online and there really shouldn't be any questions about the new frontiers.

the second piece of news is that they'll be playing the cafe on saturday night with a seriously good bill. they're on tour with alive in wild paint (equal vision records), formerly goodbye tomorrow and are playing with emme packer, atherton and dan curtis. tickets are available now at www.24tix.com for $7 and at the door as well. doors as always are at 7 pm.

...probably one of the best shows I've seen in 2008 so far. Thanks for the great line up.

Can't stop listening to their album. whatever they're doing, they're doing it right.
