Jersey pop punks The Front Bottoms have a delightful surprise to share on this fine morrow. It comes in the form of shiny new tunes — more specifically — an upcoming album titled Going Grey, which will be out on October 13th via Fueled By Ramen. 

But WAIT, there’s more. They also have a single for you to fill your ear holes with right this second, a video for said single, and the secure knowledge that there is a Philly show to attend in the fall. So considerate, these two.

With track “Raining,” Front Bottoms retain their signature poppy punk sounds while swirling in a string of folky, lo-fi elements. Take the beginning of the tune — featuring bare acoustics and a whirring synth, the song immediately conjures up some early (Sandy) Alex G, “Gnaw” vibes.

Lyrically, the single is painfully honest and raw as frontman Brian Sella details the dilapidating effects of living with hidden mental health issues. Singing “on the outside I was fine, on the inside I was all torn up,” Sella further underlines this constant, toxic binary as he goes on to cheerfully spit out the sarcastic lines “’cause I feel absolute fantastic.”

Don’t miss Front Bottoms at The Fillmore on November 22nd with Basement & Bad Bad Hats. Tickets go on sale here this Friday at 12 PM. Listen to “Raining” and check out the album artwork for Going Grey below.
