The Front Bottoms – “Flashlight”

New Jersey rockers The Front Bottoms have unleashed a music video for “Flashlight.” The video was directed by Stephen Silbernagel and Daniel Priore of Third Revelation Productions.

“The idea for this video came from us wanting to show our usual practice conditions,” drummer Mathew Uychich told Spinner. “Broken and cracked cement floors and walls, a leaky ceiling, terrible lighting, 150 feet of extension cords running from our bedroom window to the garage, powering our equipment with just enough juice left to plug in our lights. Unfortunately, the circuit will usually trip and we end up having to eliminate the things we don’t need to make music (light). So we use lanterns, flashlights, candles and glow sticks. We tried tiki torches but we almost set our garage on fire.”

The Front Bottoms’ self-titled debut was released on September 6 via Bar/None Records.
