First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Craig Almquist, the leader and constant force behind the Philadelphia-based band Cold Fronts, has mastered the art of "whatever." And not in the typical, snarky, post-millennial "who cares" sense - when Almquist uses the "W" word, it's a badge of honor, a trophy for a guy who can roll with the punches like the best of them – anyplace, anytime, and for eternity. "Forever Whatever is the title of the record, and it's got that vibe of ‘I'm gonna go for my dreams, I'm gonna try and do exactly what I want to do, I'm not gonna let the real world get in the way of my goals,'" he says. "Something about that phrase had that perfect, ‘Fuck it, I'm gonna do what I want to do' vibe."
And Almquist knows something about persisting despite the world's best attempts to throw him off course. Forming the band in 2010 while he was finishing up school in Philadelphia, Cold Fronts has consistently gone through lineup change after change. "We started doing DIY shows out of our rehearsal space and eventually lost a couple members," he adds. "That kinda kept happening. Over the years it's been a rotating cast of friends from Philly, people from other bands, friends who want to come on the road. At this point I'm the only dude in the band who played on the record, and the only original member. We've literally had 15 different members at this point. It's been a strange journey."
