The Sonic Frontiers Soundtrack Features One Very Famous Singer

The emos are definitely going to be going to new frontiers.

There are many aspects to what really makes a Sonic game stand out. From its high-octane gameplay, corny story, or the art style of the world, there’s always something to pick out. If there’s anything the hardcore fans really dig into, it’s the music for each game. Sonic Frontiers has quite a dynamic soundtrack, ranging from serene piano tunes, fast electronic music, and hard rock.

However, with the range of tunes this soundtrack has, there’s a particular singer who some really knowledgeable fans can hear. In the latest Showdown Trailer, you can hear a metalcore song playing halfway through. Then you hear the vocals go “I’m here reaching far across these new frontiers”.

To all emo ears, those vocals are iconic in the scene. Speculation ran wild; is that Vic Fuentes of Pierce the Veil? No, it’s actually Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens! Their singing styles are similar, so it is easy to confuse them. This was also a well-kept secret, but now that the cat’s out of the bag, his role as a vocalist in the rock songs of the game is quite prevalent.

To further confirm that Kellin Quinn is involved, providing vocals for some of the most notable songs in the game, he did repost someone’s post on Instagram regarding the release of Frontiers.

You’ll mostly hear songs that utilize his vocals when fighting the Titans, who are the main bosses of each island in Sonic Frontiers. In the lore, they’re almost invincible, and there’s nearly no way for Sonic to take them on. However, with the power of the Chaos Emeralds, he has a fighting chance against these gargantuan robotic entities.

These battles are epic and grand. They can take quite some time depending on how far you have leveled up in Frontiers. As of right now, you can only listen to these songs in-game by actually fighting the Titans. There isn’t a sound test mode or anything that can allow you to listen to the several tunes played throughout the story or in individual missions.

But, it has been confirmed that the whole soundtrack of the game is going to release in the near future. If you want to add some possibly new iconic Sonic songs into your playlist to accompany other legends like Crush 40, Hunnid-P, and Jun Senoue, these could be it.

As we have also seen in previous trailers, there were also works done by the popular band ONE OK ROCK, just to add some variety between standard rock and some of the more heavy selections. Despite how people feel about screamo, emo, and other variations of standard rock and metal, Quinn’s vocals take Sonic the Hedgehog in places we haven’t seen yet.

Sonic Frontiers is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
