Frost* will bring their Island Live UK tour to Edinburgh in support of their new album 'Day and Age' out now on InsideOutMusic.
Frost* was formed in 2004 by keyboard player and singer Jem Godfrey better known to the wider world at the time for creating chart-topping hits for acts including Atomic Kitten, Shayne Ward and Holly Valance.
Jem was privately becoming increasingly frustrated by the creative limitations of the pop genre and made a conscious decision to record an album true to his own childhood roots in progressive rock to let off a bit of steam.
Released in 2006 the band’s debut album 'Milliontown' was an instant success and is regarded by many as a classic in the modern prog rock genre.
‘Day and Age’ is the band's fourth studio album and featuresJem Godfrey, once again joined by John Mitchell & Nathan King, as well as 3 guest drummers: Kaz Rodriguez (Chaka Khan, Josh Groban), Darby Todd (The Darkness, Martin Barre) & Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mister Mister). The album also features spoken word on one track from actor Jason Isaacs.
Support is from Quantum Pig whose output manages to be an unashamed love-letter to Prog whilst constantly breaking new ground - lurching merrily and with chaotic grace from punk to pastoral Floydian vistas via pop, brass band, electronica and classic rock.
“It’s been 5 years since we last played live so as you can imagine we have a lot of pent up energy stored up. We can’t wait to get back out there, see our friends and give these new songs a right kicking through a proper PA”.
