Created on the western edges of the infinite plains and prairies of coldest Canada, Edmonton, Alberta's HOME FRONT dance freely and madly along the edges of time and create their own moment amongst the revered and long frozen reserves of THE CURE, SUICIDE, ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, "Second Empire Justice" era BLITZ, and NEW ORDER. A record bubbling over with analog synth, guitar loops, slammed 808 drums, and anthemic vocal pushes tugging at the great moment in-between the “death” of punk and the “birth” of new wave, pulling fresh sounds into their punk roots and shoving a studded leather jacket around a silk robe. Justice, violence, doubt and uncertainty a la Gary Numan narrating a Warren Miller Extreme Ski Special on the set of TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA: this is HOME FRONT.
released December 10, 2021
Recorded by HOME FRONT in an unheated plywood box in some semblance of fading daylight.
Produced and mixed in the darkest depths of lockdown by Jonah Falco on a boat moored outside an isolated estate along the A40 in between sets of "The Evil Russian Pushup Challenge" and icy walks to Lidl.

This album feels eternal, simultaneously feeling like it belongs anywhere and everywhere between the late '70s and today, effortlessly jumping between Devo-esque new wave and '90s indie rock with perfect results. Every single track whips ass. 10/10 AOTY. Conor

This Is a Real FAB-fuckin-tastic Masterpiece 🔥
Everybody Will Say That 20 Years From Now 👍
It's Like 80's indie Rock, New Wave Punk etc ... Yeah Like Joy Division, New Order, the Smiths, the Cure etc. But Most Of All It's "SPECTRES" 😍
