Fly Pan Am Announces New Album Frontera

Hear the first advance track "Scanner" and preorder the album on Deluxe 180gLP, CD, or digital ahead of its official release on 21 May.

Beloved Constellation band Fly Pan Am returns with a new full-length entitled Frontera. The album stemmed from a unique collaboration between the quartet and Montréal-based dance troupe Animals Of Distinction: alongside choreographer Dana Gingras and a cast of 10 dancers, the band composed a soundtrack for the acclaimed contemporary dance piece FRONTERA. This tremendous multi-media performance – framed by the stark and peerless lighting design of United Visual Artists – is a discerning and deeply affecting meditation on borders and surveillance, resistance and separation, solidarity and cooperation; bodies blocked and restrained, monitored and pursued, hiding and escaping, yearning and overcoming.



After a series of widely celebrated performances in Sydney, Berlin, and Vancouver, among others, the pandemic halted FRONTERA’s touring schedule. In February 2020, just before things went into full lockdown, the band convened with Constellation’s go-to producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh at the storied Hotel2Tango to put the soundtrack to tape. The resulting album is among Fly Pan Am’s most direct, visceral, and immediately satisfying work to date.

Frontera is exquisitely packaged and showcases half a dozen striking full-colour photographs from the dance piece: the deluxe 180gram vinyl edition is printed with UV matte varnished inks, including an artworked inner sleeve and 12”x36” fold-out art insert with liner notes; the CD mini-gatefold jacket is printed on premium Spectro artboard and includes a 6-panel art insert.
