Discover & Download - The Front Bottoms

October 29, 2015

The Front Bottoms started making a name for themselves after the crash of ’08 when American youth found themselves saddled with college loans, unemployment, part-time minimum wage service jobs and the prospect of living at home or in shady situations on twin size mattresses. TFB hit a nerve with their first two albums on the Bar/None label- the self-titled debut combined two EPs: Slow Dance To Soft Rock and Grip and Tie(2011). They followed it with Talon Of the Hawk(2013) recorded in Austin TX by Chris “Frenchie” Smith. 

Mat and Brian started making homemade recordings as teenagers later re-working the best of that material on the Grandma Rose EP(2014). They played all sorts of VFW halls and punk houses to get their chops together evolving into a heavy touring outfit that solidified a viral-fueled fan base as they opened for everyone from Tenacious D to Weezer. NPR embraced them along with college radio and press outlets as varied as Alternative Press and Huffington Post. The band now has a loyal following all over the USA, across Europe, even down under in Australia. They’ve started the TFB Motorcycle Club to announce special secret shows, exclusive merch and club meet ups. It’s a no brainer – would you rather be in a fan club or a biker gang? Imagine the possibilities for lyrics emblazoned on the back of leather jackets. Back on Top is full throttle TFB – an album with the uncanny ability to tear at your heart while showing you the best time you ever remember having—and as the good times turn into instant nostalgia ‐ feel the engines roar as the cycles head for the horizon.
