Ten years ago, guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Brian Sella and his childhood pal, drummer Mat Uychich, formed The Front Bottoms after Sella’s freshman year of college, concocting a melodic, acoustic-based sound often described as Folk Punk. Uychich’s brother Brian found a keyboard in their parents’ attic and asked to join the band; the trio subsequently recorded an interesting collection of material over the next few years, which was all self-released. In late 2010, Brian Uychich left to focus on school, and the following year The Front Bottoms released their debut for Bar/None. The band eventually added bassist/vocalist Tom Warren and guitarist/keyboardist Ciaran O’Donnell to round out the lineup that has been in place for the past four years.
