The Front Bottoms to Play Sherman Theater

The Front Bottoms to Play Sherman Theater

(STROUDSBURG, PA) -- New Jersey indie-rock band The Front Bottoms bring their 2022 tour to the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Thursday, September 15. Opening for the band will be The Joy Formidable and Mobley. In support of their upcoming new EP, Theresa, The Front Bottoms will hit the road for a five-week headline tour across North America. The band will visit major markets coast-to-coast with stops at festivals along the way.

Fueled By Ramen and The Front Bottoms have announced details of their Theresa EP, the latest installment of the group’s fan favorite Grandma EP series, which will be released September 2nd. Available for pre-order / pre-save on all streaming platforms via Wuacasokle / Fueled By Ramen, the EP is led by the single “More Than It Hurts You."

The five song collection serves as the third installment of the band’s popular Grandma EP series and features new recordings of never before released fan favorite songs.  During 2014, the guys unveiled the Rose EP named in honor of drummer Mat Uychich’s late grandmother who passed the same year. Four years later, the Ann EP followed in 2018 named after guitarist and vocalist Brian Sella’s grandmother. Theresa finds The Front Bottoms continuing the tradition by reheating tracks from their earliest days and properly releasing them for the first time.

The Front Bottoms recently headlined a special sold out three show residency at Jersey City’s White Eagle Hall. The Jersey City shows marked the first live performances from The Front Bottoms since the 2021 iteration of their popular year-end bash, Champagne Jam.  Last years’ annual holiday festival was held at The Strand in Providence, RI and saw The Front Bottoms celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their breakthrough self-titled debut album.

Last year, The Front Bottoms shared the standalone singles “Lover Boy” and “Voodoo Magic,” the latter of which the band enlisted Matt Skiba of Blink-182 and Alkaline Trio to play guitar on.

Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Brian Sella and drummer Mathew Uychich, The Front Bottoms have gripped listeners and press around the world with their ragged honesty and emotional urgency.

In 2020, The Front Bottoms released their celebrated album, In Sickness & In Flames, a twelve song collection produced by Mike Sapone.  A.V. Club declared, “The Front Bottoms are as vibrant as ever on In Sickness & In Flames, a reliably great collection of folk-punk anthems that rattle the soul with crunchy riffs, electrifying hooks, and Brian Sella’s idiosyncratic lyricism, which remains as amiable as it is anxiety-ridden.”

The Alternative detailed, “While In Sickness & In Flames was written prior to the pandemic, so much of it feels so tethered to our present collective experience, from the introspection and reflective growth that is showcased in the songwriting, to the sweeping highs and lows of the music itself. This album is the perfect companion piece to the anxiety of standing in the face of uncertainty.” 

The Sherman Theater is Monroe County’s only nationally ranked, non-profit theater and performing arts center.  Located in downtown Stroudsburg, PA, the Sherman Theater has proudly served the Pocono region for more than 90 years.  The Theater and Performing Arts Center is committed to strengthening the community by producing culturally-diverse, nationally-known professional acts and festivals at the theater and at satellite locations throughout Monroe County for people of all ages, by providing an opportunity for local artists to perform, and by creating economic development in the region. The Sherman Theater projects and events attract over 100,000 visitors to the Pocono Region annually.
