Talon of the Hawk is the second studio album by American rock band The Front Bottoms, released on May 21, 2013 on Bar/None. The album's title is partly inspired by the character, Hawk, from the television series, Twin Peaks. Vocalist and guitarist Brian Sella stated: "I have this thing with pocket knives; I think they're kind of cool. I was sitting in the van and drew this pocket knife. My girlfriend and I were watching Twin Peaks, and there's this police officer on the show that's called Hawk. I thought it was a badass nickname. So on the picture with the pocket knife, I wrote underneath it "Talon Of The Hawk, " just because it popped into my head and thought it was kind of cool. As it was getting close to the time we needed to make a decision on the album name, I found the picture with the pocket knife that I had drawn in the van coming back from recording. I just said the name and everyone kind of just agreed, and that's how it came up."
