Tiny Engines To Release New 7″ From Frontier(s)

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Tiny Engines (Dikembe, Restorations, Tigers Jaw) is excited to welcome Louisville, KY’s Frontier(s) to the family. The band will be recording 3-4 songs next week for a new 7″, to be released later this year on the Carolina-based label.

Frontier(s) features former Elliott / Falling Forward front man Chris Higdon and Matt Wieder (guitar) of Mouthpiece / The Enkindels. The new 7″ will follow up the band’s debut LP, There Will Be No Miracles Here, issued on Arena Rock and No Sleep in 2010. The band is set to record once again with Elliott / Wax Fang drummer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Young Widows, Coliseum) at La La Land Studios in the band’s hometown of Louisville, KY.

Much like the city it calls home, Frontier(s) is hopelessly Midwestern. Louisville never accepted east or west coast definitions of post-anything, and the quartet is no different. Serrating guitars, tightly wound bass, and dime-stop drums are the brick to Higdon’s mortar as he switches between airy tones and boot-shaking roar. The band channels enough hardcore angst and Husker Du-style buzzsaw guitar to make even the most jaded scenester flip their wig, while featuring pounding rhythms and a swirling wall of sound that land the listener somewhere smack in the middle of post-punk England and Washington D.C.’s Revolution Summer.

Chestnut St. Christmas party show

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Does anything else really need to be said after checking out the flyer? If so, here’s the info. Hopefully “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” doesn’t translate to the house burning down after the show. /puns.


  • Frontier(s) – ex Elliott/Sounds like Elliott (No Sleep Records)
  • Xerxes – Hardcore/Screamo/Punk/Whatever (No Sleep Records)
  • Former Thieves (IA) – Basically Breather Resist reincarnated (No Sleep Records)
  • Lay Down & Die – Feedback drenched punk (members of Coliseum, Mountain Asleep, Xerxes)

December 18th, 2011 at Chestnut House (714 E Chestnut)

Probably will do something stupid for this show. Like a punk xmas or some shit. Chestnuts roasting? (more…)

Endpoint Weekend events

Friday, May 14th, 2010

I’m sure that if you’ve had your eyes and ears open lately, you know the next few days will be packed (CJ article). Here’s a (kinda-current) rundown of just about everything happening this weekend:

Endpoint, Sunspring, Big Wheel reunionsFriday –

Endpoint/Sunspring/Big Wheel/Shedding – 7pm @ Headliner’s (tickets may still be available). Proceeds go to Jason Noble, and Mark Brickey’s EP poster will be available, as will (likely) Rise: The Kinghorse Tribute Compilation.

Post-Endpoint show @ Lisa’s Oak St. with Centipede E’est (Pittsburgh), Ampire. $3, starts whenever EP is done.

Endpoint, Cerebellum, Face Value reunion showSaturday –

Straight A’s – free in-store @ Ear X-tacy at 4pm to support their new Noise Pollution release entitled “Self Help” (12″/CD)

Endpoint/Face Value/Cerebellum/Interstates – 7pm @ Headliner’s (tickets maybe available on the forums or craigslist). Keep in mind that Mark Brickey’s posters will be on sale, as well as the new Cerebellum 12″ AND Rise: The Kinghorse Tribute Compilation. All of which are top-notch (excluding usage of flange pedals). Bring $$$ and remember that all of this will be sending money to Jason Noble’s cancer treatments and recovery.

For those not aware, Cerebellum will be playing a second reunion show in support of the aforementioned Noise Pollution release on July 31st @ Skull Alley. More information sure to come.

Frontier(s), Open Fields afterpartyFrontier(s)/Open Fields – EP show afterparty @ Zanzabar on Preston St. 11pm, $3. – Frontier(s) will be playing a song from one of their former bands, which could be any of the following or more – Falling Forward, Elliott, Stay Gold, Champion, Mouthpiece, Automatic.. I don’t feel like listing the rest and those are the more likely candidates anyway.

Sunday –

Duncan Barlow will be signing his novel Super Cell Anemia. Carmichael’s Books at 2720 Frankfort Ave. 4pm.

And then at 6pm, Endpoint, Coliseum, and Straight A’s will be playing at Skull Alley. It’ll be $5. And it’ll probably be tight for space. Get there on time, your not-so-fashionably late ass will likely be left on the street.
