"New Track: "Hey God" - The Front End"

Allentown’s The Front End explores existential themes on their latest single, “Hey God”. Framed as a post-death/dream encounter with a god, the song maintains a loose vibe despite its heavier implications. Gradually, avalanching instrumentation hastens the pace as an emotive core rises to the surface in a harmonized conclusion. - The Deli

"The Front End – Growing Pains"

Opener ‘Mandingo’ screeches onto the platform with guitar tones that lean heavily towards that classic emo sound – think The Receiving End Of Sirens and even the hardcore treble of Blink-182. The sound softens slightly on the more poetic ‘Uncle Tony’, with a more experimental sounding lead guitar part that veers into jazz territory from time to time. The vocal feels distant, with its atmospheric reverb creating a more intimate feel while the instrumentation takes the opportunity to head of into all kinds of twist and turns, making the song feel like an adolescent adventure. ‘Toes In The Sand’ pulls once again on a classic hardcore guitar tone, with a spiking and angular riff that sets the foundation for the song as it gradually unfolds, with an aggressive scream that eventually presents itself in a satisfying surprise. Closing track ‘Missed Connections’ slips into a more thoughtful, introspective mode that gradually builds with a lead guitar part that is every so slightly fizzing at the edges. All in all, it’s an EP that will certainly appeal to anyone partial to a bit of classic hardcore and are looking for something to add to their collection. - CrossRadar
