Front Bottoms Cassette Details20 on White
30 on Blue
50 on Red

Pre-orders are available starting today.

At the core of Talon of the Hawk, is the crazy hybrid of slamming rock drumming and acoustic guitar The Front Bottoms are known for, but this time the band augments their sound with electric guitars, synths, even a little accordion. Brian Sella's confident heartfelt vocals that will have you laughing one minute, crying the next and then maybe pumping your fist and singing along when you least suspect it. Talon of the Hawk rocks harder than their debut and it is more complex in both subject matter and arrangements. Once this sucker gets it's claws in, you're going to soar.

SIDE A:
1. Au Revoir (Adios)
2. Skeleton
3. I Swear To God The Devil Made Me Do It
4. Twin Size Mattress
5. Peach
6. Santa Monica

SIDE B:
7. The Feud
8. Funny You Should Ask
9. Tattooed Tears
10. Lone Star
11. Backflip
12. Everything I Own

Will ship on or after 5/21/13.

I totally get the resurgence of vinyl over the past few years, but pressing things on to cassette? I think that music sounds more rich on vinyl, but you can't convince me that my listening experience will be better on casette tape.

Some people collect them. Our releases all have limited variants and original art designs. We usually include free downloads as well, but when its another label's product we don't call those shots.

No one will try to convince you it'll be a better listening experience. It's just a cool, cheap collectible item.
