When bands reconvene for a new album, the results can be endless. For their upcoming album In Sickness & In Flames due this Friday, it seems like The Front Bottoms have pulled out all of the stops. On their expansive new video for the single “Fairbanks, Alaska” they continue to deliver shining examples of their catchy sound.
The video plays out with scenes of nature and those involved enjoying it. However the song is what works best here. The mix of electric guitar and dual vocals create a weight that’s not heavy. The production gives way to the song having catchy hooks in how it’s performed, just upbeat and full of life. The acoustic strums mix well with the extra instruments and vocals in a way that lends itself to a more focused sound from the band.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is streamable on all streaming sites. In Sickness& In Flames is available to preorder physically from Fueled By Ramen ahead of its August 21 release. The Front Bottoms are set to perform August 23 in Philadelphia, PA at The Live In The Drive In and August 27 in Oceanport, NJ at Drive-In Live.
