Michigan indie Americana quartet Frontier Ruckus bring their UK tour to the Lamplighter on Saturday night.
The band released their fifth album Enter The Kingdom last month. Talking about the LP, songwriter Matthew Milia explains 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.
Frontier Ruckus were formed at the turn of the millennium by Milia and David Jones who were then joined by Zachary Nichols and Anna Burch. Each stage of the band has documented the blurry gradations of adulthood with magnetic detail, steeped in both the nostalgic wonder and dysfunction of a 1990s upbringing. Support is by Howlin Owls and the Factotum DJs. The Lamplighter is in Overstone Road.
