ABOUT DISTANT FAMILY AND ‘PENUMBRA’

Stemming from Boise, Idaho, Distant Family are cosmic jelly all the way in and all the way out. Composed of bone, blood, dirt and love that stretches from the shores of Japan to the dusty desert hills, they fuse different backgrounds into a cohesive blend of Japanese American psych surf indie art damage. They’re following up their 2019 debut LP Canopy with a new LP Penumbra, which delves even deeper into their uniquely crafted sound.

ABOUT MAX FROST:

Named by both NPR and Rolling Stone as one of “10 Artists You Need To Know,” Max Frost has earned acclaim with his electrifyingly idiosyncratic sonic blend, a musical merging of soul, funk, hip-hop, pop and electronica that saw 2013’s breakthrough single “White Lies” lauded in such high profile national outlets as Interview, Billboard, Idolator and NPR Music.

Furthermore, Frost has become an in-demand collaborator in his own right, including DJ Snake’s recent hit single, “Broken Summer (Feat. Max Frost).” Most recently, Frost teamed up in a London studio with none other than Elton John for an upcoming collaboration with DJ Mustard.

Frost’s long-awaited debut album Gold Rush – which includes the breakout hit single, “Good Morning” – was released in January.

Executive produced by Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick (of Fitz and the Tantrums) with production by Mick Schultz (Rihanna, Jeremih, YG), JR Rotem (Panic! At The Disco, Nicki Minaj, Fallout Boy) and M-Phazes (Eminem, Logic, KYLE), Gold Rush further includes “Sometimes,” the latter of which was named amongst ESPN’s “Music of the Month,” with placement across all ESPN platforms throughout October 2018.

A remarkable solo performer hailed for stealing the show with his captivating one-man-band performances, Frost introduced fans to Gold Rush by joining Twenty One Pilots on the first North American leg of “The Bandito Tour.” Max celebrated joining the tour by creating his own acapella cover of Twenty One Pilots’ hit song “Stressed Out” on his Instagram.

Frost has made a series of high profile national TV appearances in recent months, including ABC’s “Good Morning America,” highlighted by live performances of both “Good Morning” and “Eleven Days,” and the nationally syndicated “Live! With Kelly and Ryan,” featuring a live take on “Good Morning.”

In addition, “Good Morning” was heard in an installment of ESPN’s “College Gameday,” while Frost recently tracked an exclusive version of “Good Morning” for the promotional campaign celebrating CBS’ Monday Comedy Lineup. “Good Morning” has previously been featured in a yearlong advertising campaign launching Pepsi’s new bubly line of sparkling waters. The song has been included in promotional spots for ESPN’s new morning show “Get Up” as well as in recent episodes of ABC’s hugely popular “American Idol” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
