Announce UK tour in September

Share new single, “77”

Duress due 7th June on Wichita Recordings

Los Angeles’ noise-rock trio Froth return with their most fully realised work to date, Duress due out 7th June on Wichita Recordings. Today, Froth has shared a fresh, beat driven new single “77”, accompanied by a playlist cataloging the new album’s inspirations via FLOOD Magazine.

Frontman JooJoo Ashworth explains how the song came to be while working in the studio with producer Tomas Dolas, “Toward the end of the album, Tomas and I were really digging deep into my voice memos trying to see what was worth making into a real song. I had him play bass and synth while I sung and played some guitar. Only with Tomas would we ever come up with an odd timing song. The lyrics are mostly about when I was living with my parents for a couple months after I got kicked out of my apartment by an evil landlord.”

The band will support the record with a UK tour in September, visiting Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London. Full dates are below.

8th September – Komedia, Brighton
9th September – YES, Manchester 
10th September – Nice ‘n Sleazy, Glasgow
11th September – Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
12th September – Studio 9294, London


Froth has never been a band content with the status quo. After three records, scoring theSaint Laurent Men’s Fall 2014 line fashion show (with frontman Joo Joo walking in the show), and forays into shoegaze, psychedelia and post-punk, the band of Joo-Joo Ashworth, Jeremy Katz and Cameron Allen have stepped outside the shadow of their influences and into something wholly their own.

Co-produced with longtime friend and collaborator Tomas Dolas (Oh Sees/Mr. Elevator), the record is unapologetically experimental yet undeniably accessible. It’s an impressive and self-assured statement from a group only just entering their prime.

With Duress, Froth has finally been able to realise their vision without compromise. Mirroring their open-minded studio approach, Froth’s live show is equally enthralling in its incorporation of analog synthesizers, overdubs and drum machines. The band will demolish stages across the U.S this spring performing with Black Marble, Versing, A Place To Bury Strangers DJs and more.
