Hailing from the Windy City ‘burbs, The Frantic are each old enough to drive but not old enough to drink (legally anyway). A couple of them are old enough to do their civic duty and vote.Playing together since the age of 9, the band members (singer/guitarist Kyle Dee, guitarist Ian Farnesi, bassist Chris Farnesi, and drummer Brett Hartwell) joke they werenâ€™t very good back then. â€œWe were just making noise,â€ they confess.
Well now that noise is loaded with angst and attitude, and mosh pits of the world better look out because Audio & Murder is 11 fast-paced, punk rock anthems; Although â€œMovinâ€™ Alongâ€ (track 5) comes out of nowhere and slows things down a bit with its country flavored charm.
Having already played Warped Tour, The Frantic has also shared stages with Bad Brains, Bad Religion, Riverboat Gamblers, Pink Spiders, Chiodos, New Found Glory and Youth Brigade to name a few. One of their out-of-control performances caught the eye of famed multi-platinum producer Mudrock (Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Riverboat Gamblers, Alice Cooper) who was so impressed he flew them out to L.A. and produced their debut album Audio & Murder.
â€œI first saw The Frantic on a small stage in Chicago,â€ Mudrock recalls. â€œI watched as the crowd became mesmerized by the pure punk energy rolling off the stage. Kyle was riveting in his performance, somewhere between Pete Shelley and a 90lb Joe Cocker. Never had I seen a band so young play with such confidence and conviction. The songs were tight and every detail was razor sharp. I was blown away!â€
Fans should note that amongst all the available copies of Audio & Murder will be five backstage passes, think Willy Wonka and his golden tickets, where the lucky, random winners will each be able to have their very own private, ear splitting concert for up to 50 friends courtesy of The Frantic.
The Frantic will be playing a special CD release show on Saturday October 27 at Stage 83 in Lemont, IL (see flyer below.) Everyone that attends will get a free copy of The Frantic’s new CD as well as a limited edition CD single .
