Secrets from the Future is the second studio album from nerdcore hip hop artist MC Frontalot. It was released on tour and through his website on April 6, 2007.

Like his first album, Nerdcore Rising, it is composed mostly of new material but does include two remakes from before Nerdcore Rising ("Gonna Be Your Man" and "Romantic Cheapskate"). The album features extensive references to computer culture and video games.[1] A video has been created for the song "It Is Pitch Dark". The video was directed by Jason Scott Sadofsky, and features a cameo by Steve Meretzky. It was publicly screened for the first time at the 2007 Penny Arcade Expo.

The front cover art for the album was done by Mike Krahulik of the webcomic Penny Arcade. Inside art was done by Jeffrey Rowland, himself famous for a number of webcomics. The track "Livin' at the Corner of Dude & Catastrophe" is about another webcomic, Achewood. The song "Very Poorly Concealed Secret Track" is actually a remix/re-recording of "The Ping Pong Song" by Optimus Rhyme, with MC Frontalot contributing an additional verse.
