5 Questions with: The Front Bottoms

Front Bottoms

The Front Bottoms last released Talon of the Hawk in 2013. This coming week, they’ll come to Austin for SXSW where one of their shows is the official BrooklynVegan showcase on Wednesday night after playing the Run For Cover/Brixton Agency day party the same day (flyers below).

TFB have also shared a cover of “Burn Harvard Burn” by Bar/None president Glenn Morrow (The Individuals, a) which will appear on the soundtrack of upcoming film HairBrained. Listen below.

Meanwhile, we cornered the band and asked them 5 QUESTIONS:

1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?

FB: One of our favorite venues to play in the states is Firehouse Pizza in Normal, IL. The main reason is because Zak is a god of a man. He knows how to take care of a band and is super generous.
