Frontier Ruckus shares a brand new track, “Positively Freaking,” from their forthcoming album Enter The Kingdom, out February 17 on Sitcom Universe (USA)/Loose Music. The track premiered yesterday on Paste who called it “a short and sweet bit of songcraft with an upbeat bounce that belies the depth of its message.”

Stream “Positively Freaking” on Paste or SoundCloud

Enter the Kingdom is Frontier Ruckus’s most lush record to date. The album serves as an almost desperate invitation into the band’s most recurrent setting: the suburban American household. It is immediately apparent, however, that the emphasis this time is not so much on idyllic nostalgia but the very real and present tense disintegration of a personal kingdom once thought permanent. Songwriter Matthew Milia has explained the album as a rather literal depiction of his father losing his job and relying on disability checks to retain a tenuous grasp on his childhood home. The specificity with which this is conveyed to the listener is harrowing at times, though never in full abandonment of a dark and balancing sense of humor. Although the lyrics are intrinsic to Frontier Rucks’ songcraft, the songwriting is second to none, with sophisticated, catchy tunes and lush harmonies, honed by Wilco drummer Ken Coomer’s deft production skills. Full tracklisting and album art are below.
