He was the drummer in a band called A.D.D. but had plans for a solo project, then as Jason Delismon started writing songs with guitarist Mike Nowak it grew into a full blown band. Now, this Chicago based modern rock act are going under the name of Frontline and have their debut album Cold World due for release from the Shock Records/Vanity Music Group.
“Things just started to click and it became obvious that we needed to see this thing through,” said, Frontline singer//guitarist Delismon on how things evolved from the songwriting process. The band now completed by Steve Vuko (guitars), Alex Loeber (bass), Diane Tragos (keyboards) and
Jason Jaros (drums), began hitting the local club scene after spending just under a year ironing out kinks and rehearsing. “We had a buzz right out of the gate,” recalled Delismon. “There was a great amount of hype which was basically organically created.”
Frontline then spent six months working on Cold World with producer Mike Brezen at AMG Studios in Chicago.“Mike was just a logical choice for us. He has an outstanding facility and his attention to detail and work ethic are both fantastic,” continued the frontman.
The record opens with the album’s lead single, ‘Follow’, revolving around the twin perils of cheating and former lovers. “We’ve all had this happen to us at one time or another and it’s never pleasant,” Delismon commented. “I figured we’d confront the subject and get it out of my system.” With ‘Don’t Misunderstand’ they confront the doubters of the world and with ‘Changes’ the subject of new opportunities is tackled. “This one just stemmed from my decision to move from behind the drums to a more focal point, singing and playing guitar, both of which I’ve also been doing for quite a long time,” he continued,
“We write memorable songs that people can relate to and we have a positive message, which kind of goes against the grain these days,” declared the former drummer. Music fans can find out for themselves on June 2nd when Frontline’s Cold War is officially released.
