THE FRONT BOTTOMS SHARE PEACE SIGN OFFICIAL VIDEO
NEW ALBUM GOING GREY AVAILABLE NOW
The Front Bottoms have shared the official music video for Peace Sign, which is featured on their newly released LP Going Grey. Directed by Nathan R. Smith, the Peace Sign official video is streaming at www.thefrontbottoms.com.
Produced by The Front Bottoms and Nick Furlong at studios in London, Texas, California, New Jersey, and Connecticut, Going Grey was released on Friday at all DSPs, www.thefrontbottoms.com, and music retailers nationwide. Going Grey is highlighted by the lead tracks Vacation Town and Raining, which arrived earlier this year to critical acclaim. NPR hailed the new music as “…brutally honest, witty and confessional…” adding, “The group’s heart and humor shine…” while The FADER remarked, “The Front Bottoms make memorable sing-a-longs that call back to a different, simpler, sadder era of confessional guitar music.” Stereogum praised Raining as, “grand and reflective and damn near arena-ready,” with A.V. Club declaring, “The Front Bottoms are more confident, and secure enough to confess to all they don’t yet know. It’s a privilege to listen in as they work it out.”
Going Grey finds The Front Bottoms embracing the impermanence of life and finding flexibility in the face of change. Having relocated band headquarters to the coastal New Jersey community of Asbury Park during the demoing stages of the album, GOING GREY sees the band acknowledging the nostalgia of simpler times with admiration, while welcoming the inevitable unknowns of life.
Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Brian Sella and drummer Mathew Uychich, the New Jersey-based band made their Fueled By Ramen debut with 2015’s acclaimed studio album, Back On Top, highlighted by singles HELP and Cough It Out – the latter named by NPR Music as one of its “Favorite Songs Of 2015.” The album earned copious critical attention, with NOISEY declaring “What really hits home with The Front Bottoms is the ragged honesty and raw wound emotional urgency of the songs.” The A.V. Club praised The Front Bottoms’ “steady maturation,” noting the band had “the confidence to eschew jangling crises for a quieter set of contemplations.” SPIN applauded the album’s “fuller sound,” suggesting, “Signing to Fueled By Ramen gave them the opportunity to further polish their winning melodies and conversational lyrics.”
The band were in Australia earlier this year for their own headline tour supported by The Hard Aches.
