Not to be confused with Frontiers, the Journey cover band, Frontier(s) are an indie rock band from Louisville, KY featuring emo pioneer Chris Higdon.
As the singer for Elliott and Falling Forward, Higdon was a part of the wildly influential post-hardcore scene in Louisville, helping to lay the foundation for the genre’s thrashy, emotive sound. Not ready to be put out to songwriting pasture, Higdon teamed up with guitarist Matthew Wieder, bassist Bryan Todd, and drummer Eagle Berber in Frontier(s) during 2008. With a simpler, more earnest approach to the genre, the band has a sound that’s easily recognizable for fans of mid-'90s emo, doing away with the ubiquitous screamo vocals and metal-influenced walls of guitars in favor of the rawer, more stripped-down sound of Higdon’s past work. In 2010 the quartet made its debut with There Will Be No Miracles Here, released on Arena Rock Recordings. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
