MUSIC INTERVIEW: Life On The Road With…The Front Bottoms

Currently out on tour in the UK with Blink-182, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to catch up with The Front Bottoms to hear their top touring tips and stories from the road.

Favourite thing about touring:

I get to sleep all day and party all night!

Least favourite thing about touring:

Being away from friends and family that are back home where I live. Because life doesn’t stop for them while I’m living this weird alternative reality.

Five essentials for the road:

– Wet ones
– Nice accents
– A good book
– Headphones
– Neck pillow

Your favourite way to pass the time:

Playing guitar, thinking of ideas

“The Most”: 

Memorable moment:

Crapping my pants in front of 50,000 people opening up for Kid Rock in Detroit.

Hilarious moment:

When all the boys realised I had crapped my pants.

Embarrassing moment:

Crapping my pants in front of 50,000 people opening up for Kid Rock in Detroit.

Outrageous moment:

Getting to hang out with Kid Rock backstage after we played with crap in my pants.

Drunken moment:

Rocking out to Kid Rock side stage while he rocked 50,000 screaming fans in Detroit with crap in my pants.

Rewarding moment:

Any time I get to put on a nice clean pair of underpants.
