Say Anything w/ the Front Bottoms, So So Glos, You Blew It!
The Front Bottoms are currently on tour with Say Anything. With the recent tour, singer/guitarist Brian Sella mentioned that they are releasing a new six-track EP because they are songs people were asking for. Give the people what they want, so the Rose EP was released last month via Bar/None Records.
"These are the songs that people ask for when we’re on tour, they're songs that we've either played live at shows or had kicking around that we couldn't let go of," said Sella.
