THE FRONT BOTTOMS are set to return to the UK next month with nine dates across England and Scotland. Kicking things off at Nottingham’s Rock City and signing off at London’s O2 Forum, the New Jersey four-piece are heading towards another run of sell out crowds.

When they played the UK back in February they fully sold out their shows, that, in addition to Rolling Stone calling them: “One of the 30 Best Things they saw at Coachella this year,” is certain to draw adoring fans back to their wild live antics.

Loose Cardigan Of Ideas spoke to the band ahead of their return to the North East, this time having Northumbria University to sell-out.

YOU ARE HEADING BACK TO THE UK NEXT MONTH – HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT THAT?

“We can’t wait! We are very excited to be coming back!”

ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR BRITISH NOVELTIES THAT YOU ENJOY?

“Wetherspoons!”

YOURSELVES AND MODERN BASEBALL HAVE A TOUR WITH BRAND NEW COMING UP – WHAT WILL THAT BE LIKE?

“Yeah! It is about to start next week. Brand New have always been super kind to our band. It will be a good time!”

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM YOUR LIVE SHOW THIS TIME AROUND?

“We are going to keep it freaky!”

YOU LAST PLAYED HERE IN FEBRUARY WHEN BACK ON TOP WAS NEW OUT – CAN WE EXPECT MORE FROM IT THIS TIME AROUND?

“Yes and no. We will probably play some songs from Back On Top that we left off the setlist last time.”

WILL WE GET THE GREATEST HITS AS WELL?

“Absolutely!”

DEMOS FROM THE BACK ON TOP SESSIONS ARE BEING DRIP-FED TO FANS – WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS?

“We wanted people to be able to hear some of the raw demos! We did it leading into the announce of the B-sides from the Back On Top release.”

WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE FRONT BOTTOMS?

“Keep it freaky!”
