Flobots continue their swift march upwards tonight with an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. From all indicators, the band hasn't lost any momentum. Fight with Tools is continuing to sell briskly (the album is once again Twist & Shout's top seller), and "Handlebars" is still doing quite well on the modern rock chart, holding steady at number four. Set your DVRs or check this space tomorrow for a quick wrap up. In the meantime, check out this rad featurette on the outfit by Lockerparters after the jump.
