(2021 – now)

Meaning Bandname: The name Frontsector originated from a little booklet, our frontman Sil Zijlstra had laying around in his house. The booklet was a magazine made during world war two by the Dutch resistance movement. The magazine contained poetry and songs to be shared among the people, as moral comfort during desperate times.

Bio: From Groningen.The band started existing around March 2020, during the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Drummer Siebren Tammenga, bass player Haico and guitarist Dylan Hayes former band failed because of various reasons. The three musicians were looking for a new frontman, and Sil Zijlstra was a natural. After only one rehearsal it was set in stone, and the band came to be.
