The Front Bottoms Announce 2017 Australian Tour; Drop “Ginger” Video

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 1.27.04 AM

Folk punk peaches/plums The Front Bottoms have finally answered our incessant nagging for a headline tour! The quintet’s last run Down Under was all the way back in 2014, when they joined forces with The Smith Street Band – since then, they’ve signed to Fueled By Ramen and released a goddamn incredible LP, Back On Top. Needless to say, this shit is well overdue.

No word on support acts just yet – we have our fingers crossed for Pinegrove and Camp Cope – though we’re pretty sure these shows will have no trouble selling out immediately without them: the New Jersey sadboys are hitting some of the country’s more intimate venues in January, getting up close and personal with us all in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane.

Don’t hold out for any second dates, either – eight shows in ten days means there’s only two nights free for the boys to recover from our Australian hospitality (goon). Fuck, that’s punk.

Not as punk, but still really fucking cool is the new music video released for Back On Top standout cut “Ginger”. Taking cues from ’80s classics like The Breakfast Club and Say Anything, the Marlon Brandope-directed clip shines in all of its nostalgic perfection with more regrettable throwback attire than you can wave a dog leash at. “Ginger” comes as the sixth single from the band’s third LP, following “West Virginia”, “Cough It Out”, “HELP”“Laugh Till I Cry” and “Summer Shandy”.

Tickets on sale this Thursday, June 30th at 9am via the links below!
