The Front Bottoms Are Needy When You’re Needy On New 7″

The Front Bottoms 800

About a year ago, folk punk fire-starters The Front Bottoms dropped their breakthrough third album – and major label debut, teaming up with alt scene frontrunners Fueled By Ramen – Back On Top. For those that picked up a physical copy of the opus, you might notice that, alongside the eleven on the album itself, the back cover shows an additional two tracks scribbled out.

“Tighten Up” and “Jona” were cut from Back On Top in the end, but the mystery of what they might’ve sounded like is now one shot and buried with Needy When I’m Needy. Hyped with a handful of rough demos from the album’s recording sessions (which you can check out by scrolling to the bottom of their website’s new splash), the new 7″ and cassette features both cuts – with “Jona” now corrected to “Joanie” – in all of their jammy, feels-y perfection.

Needy When I’m Needy isn’t out until October 28th, but if you’re skeptical about shelling out your hard earned dosh on a couple of tracks that supposedly weren’t good enough for an album, you can listen to both of them right now. Spoiler alert: they’re fucking incredible, and only makes us want – nay, need – a fourth TFB album ASAP.

ICYMI, the band will be in Australia this January for a massive run of headline shows, all of which are on sale now via the links at the bottom of this page!

Begin to uncontrollably shake with “Tighten Up” below!

Walk away from all of this with Joanie, too:
