The Front Bottoms hit it big early this week after signing with the record label Fueled By Ramen. The little New Jersey band has been making music since the early 2000’s but has finally come to join the leagues of Fueled By Ramen’s long list of awesome artists.
The label has signed a number popular artists over the years including the likes of; Panic! At the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, and so many other beloved bands but now it’s the Front Bottoms turn to play with the big boys.
Signing a major deal wasn’t the only thing the band was up to either; the same day that they signed their deal they also released their new single ‘Cough It Out’ along with its music video. The song speaks volumes about falling in love and the difficulty that comes along with it. The video itself is in true Front Bottoms style, it is simple but gives us a little adventure to admire.
If you’re not familiar with this band already I suggest you build your repertoire, starting with my personal favourites ‘Peach’ and ‘Twin Size Mattress’. This band has some serious lyrical talent, and both of these songs show it to the fullest. Each of their songs beyond these two are little stories, poems or pissed off odes to getting lost, and before long everyone and their mother will be talking about them. Fueled By Ramen has had a serious hand in helping so many bands make a name for themselves and I have no reason to believe they won’t help The Front Bottoms knock peoples socks off soon.
The bands new single is now available for purchase on iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon and for streaming on Spotify along with their previous albums. Go fall in love with the Front Bottoms; they are more than worth it.
