8 PM SHOW  The Creepy Jingles open.
 
Frogpond prepares to release its first album in over 20 years, with a refreshed lineup. Clocking in at a succinct 30 minutes, TimeThief brims with momentous pop anthems, striking dynamics and riff-heavy stomps that draw on the visceral grunge and power-pop aesthetics that made the band fan favorites of the late ‘90s alternative rock scene. Driven by singer/guitarist and founder Heidi Phillips’ rapturous vocals — simultaneously meditative and eruptive — the music remains true to the original Frogpond sound, unvarnished and deliberate but with the added benefit of time and perspective.
 
Rewriting a story that seemingly ended long ago (one that included a meteoric rise, two major label albums and tours with world-famous acts like Goo Goo Dolls, Toadies and Fastball), Phillips and long-time bassist, Justine Volpe, assert that reforming the band is more than just a reunion; it’s a reclamation of Frogpond’s identity, where the music can finally speak for itself. The addition of seasoned musicians Kristin Conkright on rhythm guitar and Michelle Bacon on drums restores the band to an all-female lineup, evoking the band’s original spirit of vitality and camaraderie. With this configuration and an endlessly playable record, TimeThief marks much more than a reunion, but a bold, lived-in proclamation of self-expression and independence.
 
TimeThief will be released on digital platforms and limited-edition vinyl via Black Site Records in Nov. 2021. Preorders are available: https://frogpond.bandcamp.com/album/timethief
