Fresh off of frontman Brian Sella’s exhilarating performance at our SXSW showcase last month, the Front Bottoms are returning with their first new album since 2020’s In Sickness & In Flames. You Are Who You Hang Out With arrives on August 4 via Fueled By Ramen and coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the band’s breakthrough 2013 record, Talon of the Hawk, which they will tour in celebration of next month.

Lead single “Outlook” combines all of the best parts of the Front Bottoms’ aesthetic: The track begins with a self-titled-era acoustic arpeggio, only to explode into a Back on Top-era jam session. Sella, whose vocals haven’t changed a bit in the last 15 years, is at peak form here, as he glides atop backing harmonies turning in every sonic direction. To top it off, drummer Mathew Uychich keeps at a blistering pace with Sella and, together, they roar towards the song’s triumphant finish line. “You know that I’d go anywhere for ya / If I got the news no one wants to hear,” Sella sings in the second verse.
