The Front Bottoms announce new EP, tour with The Joy Formidable (hear “More Than It Hurts You”)

Folk punk duo The Front Bottoms are back with a third EP as part of their "Grandma series," this one titled Theresa (out September 2 via Fueled By Ramen). Theresa follows in the footsteps of 2014's Rose and 2018's Ann EPs, named after band members Mat Uychich and Brian Sella's grandmothers and dedicated to the release of early, fan-favorite TFB tracks. With the announcement of the EP comes lead single "More Than It Hurts You," featuring strummy power chords, rolling drums, and lyrics as poignant as ever. Listen below.

The Front Bottoms have also announced a headlining tour this fall, kicking off with a Long Island show in Wantagh at Mulcahy's on September 14. The Joy Formidable and Mobley open some shows, and they also have festival appearances lined up at Riot Fest in Chicago, Ohana Festival in Dana Point, CA, and Austin City Limits in Texas. Tickets to the new dates go on sale Tuesday, June 28 at 10 am. Check out the full list of dates, plus artwork and track list for Theresa, below.
