The New Frontiers was an American indie rock band from Dallas, Texas.[1] Originally called Stellamaris, they released a self-titled EP in 2006, but changed their moniker after discovering that they shared a name with a long-established Israeli band.[2] A second EP, titled Tour, followed in 2007.[3] The band released their only studio album, titled Mending, in 2008.[4] The New Frontiers split up in late 2008 and played their final show in January 2009.[5] Support at this concert came from This Will Destroy You, a band who drummer Alex Bhore has since joined.[6]
