Named after Woody Guthrie’s guitar scrawl during WWII, "This Machine Kills Fascists”, This Frontier Needs Heroes is the Alt-Folk duo, Brad and Jessica Lauretti from Brooklyn, NY. Their songs are personal, honest stories of love, loss and longing for a better world, delivered with a delicately harmonious power.
Utilising Kickstarter donations from their growing fan base to fund their second album, The Future that you hold in your hands, the band decided to leave the studio for a more intimate approach, recording instead in an old school house in Wassaic, NY. Together with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato (MV & EE, Dinosaur Jr., Thurston Moore), folk legend Kath Bloom, and Jason Klauber from Acrylics (who appear as guest musicians), THE FUTURE is a collection wild new songs about their rambling experiences and new visions about space, family, heroes, history, and dogs.
Since their 2009 debut release, they have received much acclaim from around the globe playing hundreds of shows across the US and UK with Kath Bloom, She Keeps Bees, Arbouretum, Tallest Man on Earth, and The Handsome Family including several UK festival appearances (End of the Road, Shambala, and Solfest)
THE FUTURE also includes album art in 3D and will be shipped with 3D glasses!
