The Western Front is the musical project of the Iowa-raised multi-instrumentalist brothers David Earl, Mitch and Drew Fischels. The trio writes, records, and produces music out of their home studio in Austin, TX. 
 The brothers’ unique sound was first heard on 2004’s, Go to Your Desire Don't Hang Around Here which was lauded for its wide scope, genre-mashing, and solid DIY production. This year also marked the band’s first of many U.S. tours. 
 In 2008, they released The Balkanization of Epistemology from their home studio in Iowa City, Iowa. 
 The brothers moved to Austin, TX in 2014 where David Earl and Mitch Fischels co-founded Tomar and the FCs. In 2016, The Western Front released Between the Moon. 
 Thanks For Having Me is the latest release from the brothers and will be released as a series of singles over the course of 2021. The EP’s album art was created by the Texas-based artist Heather Sundquist Hall. Tony Rincon joins the group once again with his pedal steel guitar and Cameron Page provides drums.
