Philly indie rock band Cold Fronts are set to release their sophomore album Fantasy Du Jour on 4/20 via Sire Records. Recorded over the course of three weeks in early 2017 in New York City, Fantasy Du Jour marks the first time the band in its current iteration fully collaborated on a body of work. Consisting of Craig Almquist (vocals/guitar), Max Steen (guitar), Alex Luquet (bass) and Joe Killian (drums), the quartet spent the past three years honing their sound through extensive touring with the likes of White Reaper, The Weeks, Hinds and Sunflower Bean, as well as subsequent group writing sessions.
Formed in 2010 by lead singer/guitarist Craig Almquist, the band were discovered in 2012 while playing an impromptu show on the streets of Austin at SXSW. Passing by and liking what he heard, legendary Sire Records co-founder Seymour Stein asked for a CD. One year later, the band was signed to Sire Records and released their debut album Forever Whatever in 2015. The band have previously been featured in Consequence of Sound, Pigeons & Planes, Nylon and Urban Outfitters who said, "This is a group that can knock out raw and catchy garage-pop songs one by one."
