The Front Bottoms are debuting a new song, “Vacation Town,” along with a new music video for the track—and it's extra heartfelt and relatable for those feeling the pressure of "growing up."
Give it a watch below!
The track is taken from their forthcoming album, Going Grey, set to be released Oct. 13.
Listen to “Vacation Town,” which premiered on NPR music, below:
The band released their last album, Back On Top, back in 2015, and when we talked to frontman Brian Sella for our Most Anticipated feature at the end of last year, he explained that their forthcoming record will likely feel more like their self-titled, which was a big part of their artistic development.
“On the last album, we did it real rock-star style. We went out to California, we worked with a big time producer, we took a long time to do it, and that was an interesting approach but we probably are not going to approach it that way again,” Sella explained.
“I think we’re going to try and do it more by ourselves, like with me and Matt [Uychich] producing it… That’ll be different, the whole approach of it. We just like to experiment. We’re artists and we think of these albums as art projects. It’s all-inclusive—you have the artwork, you got the name of the songs, the name of the album, you got the music—it’s like one giant art project. The way that it works itself out is a mystery, and that’s what we’re trying to find.”
The band debuted the first single, “Raining,” last month, and you can watch the music video here. Plus, they’ll be headed out on a fall tour in support of their newest release. Check out the full list of cities and dates below!
