The Front Bottoms are celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their landmark album, Talon of the Hawk with tour dates and a special limited edition vinyl. The upcoming dates will kick off with a festival performance at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees on May 6th and will see the band making multiple stops around the Northeast joined by special guests AJJ.
Pre-sale tickets for the shows are on sale now HERE with general on sale beginning this Friday, February 24th at 10:00AM ET. The special vinyl reissue of Talon of the Hawk features original artwork designed by guitarist / vocalist Brian Sella – it is available for pre-order HERE.
Comprised of guitarist / vocalist Brian Sella and drummer Mathew Uychich, The Front Bottoms have gripped listeners and press around the world with their ragged honesty and emotional urgency. In 2020, The Front Bottoms released their celebrated album, In Sickness & In Flames, a twelve song collection produced by Mike Sapone. NME attested, “In Sickness & In Flames is a defining work that showcases a sonic universe, rather than a structured set of songs, expertly capturing the inescapable tension of 2020.” A.V. Club declared, “The Front Bottoms are as vibrant as ever on In Sickness & In Flames, a reliably great collection of folk-punk anthems that rattle the soul with crunchy riffs, electrifying hooks, and Brian Sella’s idiosyncratic lyricism, which remains as amiable as it is anxiety-ridden.” UPROXX added “In Sickness & In Flames features the band’s biggest choruses to date, anchored with hooks and deeply personal songwriting that will turn heads,” while The FADER hailed it as, “a celebration of sorts for a band perennially on the fringes of a major breakthrough.” The Alternative detailed, “While In Sickness & In Flames was written prior to the pandemic, so much of it feels so tethered to our present collective experience, from the introspection and reflective growth that is showcased in the songwriting, to the sweeping highs and lows of the music itself. This album is the perfect companion piece to the anxiety of standing in the face of uncertainty.”
