    Whenever bands do a music video that consists of them performing in front of a live crowd, you're almost always hearing studio versions of the song dubbed over the live footage. Jersey punk-rockers The Front Bottoms are going for something a little more real in their new video for "Swimming Pool". The band just announced a tour supporting Motion City Soundtrack (after having opened for other pop-punk bands like Dashboard Confessional) but before kicking that off played a raucous show at Asbury Lanes (we've been there...). The high-octane atmosphere makes for a great video here. You gotta love a Jersey punk-rock show.

    Check out their tour dates below including a slot at Bamboozle where they'll be opening for one of my favorite post-hardcore bands, Brand New.
