Our artists speak highly of us!
“Frontiers is perhaps the most important label in melodic rock and metal. Carrying that torch they give established acts and more importantly plenty of new artists a playground to grow on. Thanks for this and for letting me be a small part of it all.”
Jona Tee (Crowne, New Horizon)
“I’ve been with Frontiers Records since 2000, they were passionate about the music then and they’re every bit as passionate about the music now.”
“It is rare to find a music label that shares an artist’s passion for their art and, for me, that label is Frontiers. Over the last 22 years and countless albums I have been impressed with not only their ability to market my projects but to share my passion and excitement in releasing fresh new music to the world.”
Jim Peterik of Pride of Lions (formerly of Survivor and of 38 Special fame).
“Working with Frontiers has been amazing. They have really helped to reestablish our presence (Stryper) in the music world and we could not be more grateful. Serafino loves and respects this genre immensely and it really shows with every release. I’m thankful to be able to work with Frontiers and I’m ever more thankful that they want to work with me.”
Michael Sweet (Stryper, Iconic, Sweet & Lynch)
Thank you for an amazing year, and here’s to a new year of
great ROCK and success together!
