Front was first published by Cabal Communications in 1998, it was created to rival IPC's publication Loaded, catering to a demographic of 16-25 year-old males. It began as part of the British "lads' mag" genre of magazines though the covers rejects this description with the statement "Front is no lads' mag".

Whilst a major selling point is the photo-shoots of models, the magazine also focuses heavily on music, films, gadgets and games, plus sections on fashion and sport. Glamour shoots within the magazine usually involve well-known models rather than celebrities.

The magazine has also been responsible for a number of high profile stunts, most notably smuggling an Eric Cantona lookalike into the Manchester United team photo during a Champions League game. Today it is edited by Joe Barnes and published by The Kane Corporation who are based in Soho, London.

The Kane Corporation is led by 24 year old self made millionaire entrepreneur Dominic McVey and managing director of talent agency Money, Francis Ridley.
