The Front Bottoms – S/T Album Released in June

RELEASE SELF-TITLED ALBUM OUT 11th JUNE 2012 ON BANQUET RECORDS

UK TOUR MAY 2012

New Jersey’s, The Front Bottoms are based around an acoustic guitar, drums and two vocals.  Vocalist and guitarist Brian Sella and drummer-bullhornist Mathew Uychich have known each other since they were 10 and 8 years old respectively and have been, in one way or another, a band for years.  The duo sing intelligent lyrics about love, life, growing up and self doubt, over the greatest of songs.  There are touches of Say Anything, The Replacements, Harvey Danger, The Hold Steady and The Get Up Kids, and they’ve recently toured in America with Dashboard Confessional and Kevin Devine.  They straddle the line between indie and punk perfectly.

“We like to keep it familiar so that it’s not too intimidating,” says singer-guitarist Brian Sella, “but we always make sure it’s not immediately recognizable.” It’s true, you just can’t quite put your finger on them but we invite you to try to peg these guys with the release of their self-titled debut The Front Bottoms out 11th June 2012 on Banquet Records. The album is available for pre-order now http://bnqt.co/label

With the wonders of the internet and their obsessive gigging, The Front Bottoms are now known from New Jersey to…Spain (?) where director Pablo Nieto found them online and asked to create a video for ‘Maps.’ The video features Williamsburg, a farm (where Mathew sometimes works), and their trusty touring Econoline 1989 van as well as some “loveable” hand puppets. You can view the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KbT6qUpROnI
