The Front Bottoms



With the finish line of their very first US national headline tour in sight, THE FRONT BOTTOMS debut their new video for “Funny You Should Ask” off of their critically-acclaimed new album Talon of the Hawk. SPIN premiered the video earlier this week. After wrapping up their US dates with a headline show at the iconic Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, the band will head overseas for a Fall headline tour throughout Europe then hit the ground running on Canadian soil for a handful of headline shows.

“This was the first time Brian held a snake,” exclaims drummer Mat Uychich, which might give you an idea of their all-star cast. To maintain their quirkiness, the video starts off with a tarantula crawlingup a guitar neck followed by numerous cameos by an alligator, a turtle, dog and multiple snakes.

Their new hook-filled, anthemic, and conversational album Talon of the Hawk was released on May21, 2013 via seminal indie label Bar/None Records. It debuted on seven different Billboard charts (#144 Top Current Albums, #3 Top New Artist, #2 Alternative New Artist, #30 Independent Record Label, #97 Overall Digital Albums, #18 LP Vinyl Albums, #32 Current Alternative Albums).American Songwriter called it “…epic and unruly all at once…”, Punknews suggests you should “Let yourself find your new favorite lyrics”, and Alternative Press assures that “The Front Bottoms will soundtrack your life until it’s like you’ve never been without them”.
