There must be something in the New Jersey water that contributes to its history of great punk bands (Saves The Day, Gaslight Anthem, Bouncing Souls) – and The Front Bottoms show there’s no sign of that slowing. After supporting The Menzingers at an incredibly hot and sweaty sold out show at London’s Borderline, the band are now selling out their own shows with ease, and the latest UK shows showcased their latest album in perfect fashion. Talon of the Hawk is an incredible love letter to being young and the punk scene in general, and is best heard in a room full of friends singing along to every word. – James Farrelly
