The band's new single 'Flashlight' is a driving anthem through the basement of teenage thought, with a couple pulls of whiskey for good measure. Brian Sella's vocals are layered in rounds of inspired punk while a trumpet croons along the corners of nostalgia.
"The idea for this video came from us wanting to show our usual practice conditions," drummer Mathew Uychich tells Spinner of the accompanying video for 'Flashlight.' "Broken and cracked cement floors and walls, a leaky ceiling, terrible lighting, 150 feet of extension cords running from our bedroom window to the garage, powering our equipment with just enough juice left to plug in our lights.
"Unfortunately, the circuit will usually trip and we end up having to eliminate the things we don't need to make music (light). So we use lanterns, flashlights, candles and glow sticks. We tried tiki torches but we almost set our garage on fire."
The video, which was directed by Stephen Silbernagel and Daniel Priore of Thirdrev.com, is the stuff kids dream about: Playing your heart and soul out in a filthy garage. The Front Bottoms are currently on tour, rocking out for real, in support of their eponymous new record (out now via Bar/None).
