“…incredibly clever lyrics, layered beats and fondness for gaming, sci-fi and comic-book culture attract fans like myself … along with much younger folks across the globe.” – Whitney Matheson of USA Today

“For the family in need of a fresh tape with parental approval with minimal advisories and warning labels; Frontalot and friends answer your pleas with a clever collection of brainy, fantastical nonsense.” – Impose

“Despite the fairytale subject matter, MC Frontalot’s trademark rapid-fire flow and love of narrative complexity remain in full effect.” – The Daily Dot

“…he’s not just about ice-cold flow and deep rhymes: he’s also funny as hell.” – BoingBoing

“…salient (if surreal) social and political commentary.” – Westword

“While Frontalot works hard to seem flippant, his devotion to the fine art of word-slinging is utterly serious.” – Spin

“Call him a curiousity, but Frontalot has skills.” – Geekosystem

“…a new gold standard for nerdcore.” – Newsarama

MC Frontalot’s full-length album, Question Bedtime, is out today via Level Up.  With album artwork by Eisner Award winning and legendary comic book artist Bill Sienkiewicz, each of its ten songs explores a different fairy tale. Some will seem familiar and others obscure, as they hail from all over the globe. This release sees Front aiming, for the first time, to create an entertainment appropriate for the entire family.  The songs are clever and catchy enough that the whole family will be rapping along.  Check out the full album stream courtesy of Impose here.

About the album, MC Frontalot explains, “”Maybe this is in some way a nerdcore record, because it was seeded by my time reading fairy tales in my middle school library. Maybe because we still read similar stories aloud to children, it is in some way a children’s record. But it is definitely a record aimed at a certain kind of inquisitive and enchantable mind, regardless of age or identity. I hope it finds them and connects with them.”

Over the past decade, MC Frontalot has taken the musical genre of nerdcore from the obscure and underground to the main stage. He’s released five studio albums chock full of ingenious rhyming, witty observations, and incredibly contagious hooks. Now, he’s back, but in an entirely different way, and he has brought a ton of awesome guests with him, including Kid Koala, Busdriver, Jean Grae, Sole, John Roderick, The Protomen, MC Chris, Parry Gripp, Kyle Kinane, Paul F. Tompkins, and Open Mike Eagle.

Be sure to catch MC Frontalot when he hits up your city in the next few weeks.
