Front End Loader, according to the internet, "is an Australian rock band...formed in early 1991 in the Sydney suburb of Darlington".
(Source: www.discogs.com/artist/276106-Front-End-Loader) So far, so good.
Front End Loader has never had a change of line-up, has never announced a "hiatus" and, unbeknownst to almost the entire population of
the world, has continued to write, record and tour original rock music.
Since 1992, Front End Loader has released, put out or "dropped" if you will about 20 things.

The years have been downright mean to and, not content with merely catching up, time has lapped them while laughing maniacally.
Too young to be part of the glory days of the celebrated Australian Pub Scene, too old to ever truly understand, let alone capitalise on, the various emergent platforms and channels of the modern music-delivery environment, wanders, like your drunk uncle at Christmas, in the family dining room that is the current Australian live music scene, occasionally and briefly entertaining your middle-aged cousin, sometimes catching your interest but most of the time just really embarrassing Nanna.
The writing, as it has been for a very long time, is on the wall.

Facing the inevitable law of diminishing returns, growing financial losses, shrinking opportunities for both airplay and live performances, the clearest and most logical course of action is simple.
Front End Loader should obviously break up, cease and desist or to use the perfect word for the action; disband.
Front End Loader has therefore decided to release a new album.
Catch Front End Loader launching their new album "Neutral Evil" at the Ed Castle on March 24, with support from Meatbeaters.
