 The Front Bottoms have delivered a powerful new album with Back On Top, their first for Fueled By Ramen.  The Record is both full of departures and a continuation of the work they’ve been building on for years.  Brian Sella (Vocals/Guitar) and Mat Uychich (Drums) have put together a vibrant array of new material with band mates Tom Warren (Bass) and Ciaran O’Donnell (Guitar, Horns, Keyboards).  The growth and confidence shows in the work of this unit of four.  While there is plenty that is familiar from Mat’s powerhouse drumming to Brian’s acoustic guitar and a healthy dose of horns, there is also plenty that is new, including bigger rock sounds (‘Motorcycle’, ‘West Virginia’, ‘The Plan (Fuck Jobs)’) and surprisingly melodic vocal parts (‘Cough It Out’, ‘Help’). There’s even a guest turn from rapper GDP who takes their darker side to even darker places in the ‘Historic Cemetery’.

 

Formed in New Jersey, The Front Bottoms have garnered critical acclaim thanks in part to a never ending tour schedule and a prolific run of releases beginning with their acclaimed 2011 self-titled debut. “The community that’s formed around these songs — as total strangers purge deep emotions in a public space — is a beautiful phenomenon, a testament to the passion and compassion that this band radiates” exclaimed NPR’s Bob Boilen while SPIN declared that the Garden State group “excel at crafting folk-inflected pop-punk, songs occupied by characters that are too smart (and too sensitive) for their own good.”
