The Front Bottoms have announced their new album In Sickness & In Flames, due for release on 21st August 2020 via Atlantic Records.
“Earlier this year, we made a new album and decided to name it In Sickness & In Flames,” they comment. “When we were writing the album and settling on the title, it meant something completely different to us. We could have never imagined where the world would be just six months later. In true TFB style this album has developed into something of its own that we no longer control the narrative of.”
The duo have also released a video for their new single montgomery forever.
In Sickness & In Flames is available to pre-order HERE.
The Front Bottoms recently released ukulele versions of previous singles camouflage and everyone blooms, which also feature on the new album, on BandCamp. The two tracks (which you can check out HERE) raised $3,595 in proceeds in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. This was matched by the band alongside an additional contribution from Fueled By Ramen, donating a total of $10,000 to The Center for Cultural Power, a women of colour, artist-led organisation, inspiring artists and culture makers to imagine a world where power is distributed equitably.
“Through the power of art, we have a responsibility to do our part to help make the world a better place for everyone, especially those who identify as BIPOC. Without all of you this would not be possible, and we are so grateful for your endless support,” the band recently commented. Check out their full letter to their fans HERE.
The Front Bottoms have also been broadcasting short films and live performances on their Twitch channel, after they were forced to cancel their spring headline tour and co-headline dates with Jimmy Eat World due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Additional programmes will be announced in the coming weeks, for now check out their previous streams HERE.
