The legend of Cold Fronts goes like this: The band was playing an impromptu show in the streets of Austin at SXSW in 2012 when the legendary Sire Records co-founder Seymour Stein passed by. Liking what he heard, Stein asked Almquist for a CD. Almquist had no idea that his admirer was none other than the man who once signed the Ramones, Talking Heads, and Madonna, and only two weeks later did he understand his good fortune. A year later, Stein signed the band to Sire. Whatever, right?

Cold Fronts debut album Forever Whatever was just released this year and melds a unique catchy sound of summer vibes. The band attributes its influences to the Pavement, The Ramones, and Weezer, and they've shared stages with bands like The Cribs, The Vaccines, Har Mar Superstar, and Skaters.
