It has been a long time coming and finally the Cowtown streets of Denver are starting to see a decent number of bands that are able to hold their own. Among the talented peeps representing the 303 is skate-punk hooligans Frontside Five. The band took a few minutes off from their current US tour to speak with Blogcritics.org to tell readers a little bit about the band and their unrelenting music. If you need a blast of aggression while your counting the days until The Incredible Hulk opens, the band will be making a stop on their home turf when the will tear the roof off Three Kings Tavern on June 11th.
NOTE: I’m not sure if the band's drummer Robdogg, was suffering from touring fever, distracted by something strange or what, but as you can see many of theses questions are answered in the third person and the questions that aren’t sound like they were read off cue cards. Either way, Enjoy!
Did all the members grow up in Denver?
Brooke grew up in Arvada, a suburb of Denver, Shane is from Cortez, CO, Bart is from Florida, and Robdogg is from California
What is your take on the Denver music scene?
Denver has a very active and growing music scene. You can see live music at multiple venues 7 nights a week, anytime of the year. There are a lot of great and talented musicians who seem to get along together in the scene.
Denver is also a huge hub for national bands, which gives our local bands a lot of opportunity to play with and establish relationships with musicians/bands from across the country.
Tell me a little about your forthcoming record.
Our next album is being written as we speak. It will definitely be a different album than the first three previous releases. Since our last release, 50 – 50 Split, we have downsized to a four piece.
Brandon Stolz, our previous front man, left the band last Summer. Instead of replacing Brandon with a new singer, both guitarists, Shane Henry and Bart McCrorey have stepped up to the microphone with dueling vocals.
