Two New Rochelle-born brothers, Daniel and Steve Bateman, better known as the musical duo Frog have been earning an international cult following for their music over the past few years. Airplay and acclaim from the likes of the BBC, California’s KCRW, national Austrian radio station FM4 and NPR Music have helped them to gain a global audience, with over 9.7 million streams on the Spotify subscription service.

Now the two locals can add Pitchfork, known as “The Most Trusted Voice in Music” to their long list of supporters. Frog’s “Maybelline” single (first premiered by For The Rabbits in Sheffield, England) has been featured in this week’s Pitchfork Selects list, alongside major label artists like Megan Thee Stallion and Tokischa. Pitchfork is an internationally renowned music publication and coverage on their site is highly sought after by artists of all sounds and styles.

Frog’s fifth album “Grog” will be released on November 17th through the independent Audio Antihero & Tapewormies labels and is to be preceded on November 10th by the “New Ro” single, which is a love letter to their hometown. The single can be pre-saved to Spotify here and the album can also be pre-saved at this link.

The album’s launch event will take place on November 17th, as a part of YoFi Fest 11 in Yonkers, NY. There will be a screening of their Kings of Blahdocumentary at YoFi Digital Media Art Center and then a live performance from the band at the Yonkers Brewing Company.
