Release Notes:

After a two-year hiatus, Froth is back with their most fully
realized work to date, ?Duress. Co-produced with longtime friend
and collaborator Tomas Dolas (Oh Sees/Mr. Elevator) at his
analog-focused Studio 22 in Cypress Park, CA, the record is
unapologetically experimental yet undeniably accessible –
combining some of the band s strongest hooks with left-field
sounds and unexpected flourishes of electronica. Joo Joo
Ashworth has matured into a talented producer in his own right,
communicating his singular vision through studio technique as
much as his angular, Verlaine-inspired guitar sound. As always,
the rhythm section of Jeremy Katz and Cameron Allen displays a
tightness and sense of mutual understanding only achieved
through years of friendship and extensive touring.

Duress sees the band stepping outside the shadow of their
influences and into something wholly their own. It s an
impressive and self-assured statement from a group only just
entering their prime
