The band commented on the news stating, “We haven’t let anything stop us from throwing our annual Champagne Jam in the past and despite all of the challenges, this year will be no different. This year the Champagne Jam will be VIRTUAL and you can tune in from the comfort and safety of your own home. It’s a collection of some of our closest friends and favorite artists, and we are so excited to keep the tradition of Champagne Jam alive with you.”
“When you listen to this, we definitely want you to feel the anxiety. There are some pretty rock and roll songs and heavy moments on In Sickness & In Flames… we hope the tension comes across,” stated The Front Bottoms. In Sickness & In Flames features the celebrated singles “montgomery forever,” “camouflage,” “everyone blooms,” “Fairbanks, Alaska,” and finds the duo of Brian Sella and Mathew Uychich celebrating life and purging angst through introspection.
With touring abilities limited under the global pandemic, The Front Bottoms have taken to Twitch to broadcast short films and livestream performances to fans around the world on their official channel – www.Twitch.tv/TheFrontBottomsMusic.
