The Front Bottoms have shared an official music video for “Peace Sign,” which is featured on their new LP, Going Grey. Directed by Nathan R. Smith, the “Peace Sign” official video can be seen below.
Produced by The Front Bottoms and Nick Furlong at studios in London, Texas, California, New Jersey, and Connecticut, Going Grey arrives today at all DSPs, www.thefrontbottoms.com, and music retailers nationwide. Going Grey is highlighted by the lead tracks “Vacation Town” and “Raining,” which arrived earlier this year to critical acclaim. NPR hailed the new music as “…brutally honest, witty and confessional…” adding, “The group’s heart and humor shine…” while The FADER remarked, “The Front Bottoms make memorable sing-a-longs that call back to a different, simpler, sadder era of confessional guitar music.” Stereogum praised “Raining” as, “grand and reflective and damn near arena-ready,” with A.V. Club declaring, “The Front Bottoms are more confident, and secure enough to confess to all they don’t yet know. It’s a privilege to listen in as they work it out.”
The New Jersey-based band is set to begin a U.S. headline tour with special guests Basement and Bad Bad Hats. The coast-to-coast trek is set to commence Thursday, October 19 at Boston, MA’s House of Blues and then continue into November (see attached itinerary). Tickets for the tour are on sale now with all tickets purchased online receiving an instant download of Going Grey. Furthermore, The Front Bottoms will be celebrating the release of Going Grey with a series of instore performances beginning tonight, October 13 at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, New Jersey followed by a performance at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, October 14.

Going Grey finds The Front Bottoms embracing the impermanence of life and finding flexibility in the face of change. Having relocated band headquarters to the coastal New Jersey community of Asbury Park during the demoing stages of the album, Going Grey sees the band acknowledging the nostalgia of simpler times with admiration, while welcoming the inevitable unknowns of life.
