Front Bottoms

The Front Bottoms have an upcoming tour which already includes sold out shows happening in NYC on 11/13 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Manchester Orchestra and O'Brother, and on 12/27 at Bowery Ballroom with HfmO: A Hall and Oates Tribute and The Bynars.

Now, we at BrooklynVegan are proud to announce that we're teaming up with PopGun to present a holiday show that The Front Bottoms will headline in NYC. It happens at the intimate Shea Stadium on December 28, a day after their bigger show at Bowery Ballroom. The very funny Chris Gethard (who also hosted our Bouncing Souls show) is on the bill, in addition to Minnesota mathy post-hardcore trio Tiny Moving Parts. Tickets for the show go on sale today (10/23) at 10 AM.

The Front Bottoms' newest album, Talon of the Hawk, came out earlier this year via Bar None. It's a fun, catchy, and very lyrical album that's folky, poppy, and punky without really being folk, pop or punk. If you haven't heard it you can stream it in full, along with the updated list of tour dates, below...

I don't know what to make of this album. I've never heard of them before, and I've just come across this by chance, and it pretty amazing, but at the same time, I feel... strange, kind of when you like a girl for the first time, its a strange sensation, and I like it, but at the same time, I don't. Hopefully I'm not the only one.
