2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the Front Bottoms: the band made their network TV debut earlier this year and are about to head on out a big spring headlining tour with Brick + Mortar and Diet Cig, which features a list of festival appearances with more slated to be announced.

The Front Bottoms released their Fueled By Ramen debut Back On Top in September of last year. Portlandia is a sketch comedy show full of satire starring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen that pokes fun at every stereotype associated with Portland, OR ever.
