THE FRONT BOTTOMS - Self-Titled (September 6, 2011)
THE FRONT BOTTOMS - Talon Of The Hawk (May 21, 2013)
THE FRONT BOTTOMS - “Rose” EP(June 17, 2014)

Singer/guitarist Brian Sella and drummer Matt Uychich started playing together at high school talent shows in Bergen County, NJ, and worked their way up through the grind of basement shows and all-ages clubs before releasing their debut self-titled album on Bar/None in 2011.  The group immediately hit a chord with young and old listeners alike (including a small army of critics,) who fell in love with Sella’s confessional lyrics and Uychich’s manic punk-rock drumming.  Fans flocked to their shows  to sing along and throw down, recalling the early days of fellow Jersey-bred favorites like the Bouncing Souls and Saves The Day.  This summer,  the Front Bottoms – now a four piece – will be on tour supporting their major label debut Back On Top, including performances at Coachella and Lollapalooza.

BRIAN SELLA – When we first signed, it really felt like we were signing to a family. I remember we just wanted to sign to a label and go on tour, that was our dream. And we needed a thousand bucks to buy a van.  Glenn just showed up at the car dealership and gave us the money.  We actually… me and Matt used to live in this guy’s house in Westwood, and we actually have a video of us there at the kitchen table signing the contract.  It was exciting  for us, and it definitely felt like the next level, which is what we’re always trying to do.
