More about Flatliners
THE FLATLINERS have been playing punk rock/reggae/grime that makes you
want to dance and punch for 7 years now. That's rad. It's been fun too.
Fun is rad.
Since the release of Destroy To Create (2005 Stomp Records), THE FLATLINERS
have toured 9 Canadian provinces and 28 states, alongside such notable
acts as: Bad Religion, Anti-Flag, The Suicide Machines, Death By
Stereo, Big D & the Kids Table, None More Black, No Use For A Name,
The Loved Ones, Catch 22, the Voodoo Glow Skulls, Bigwig, etc.,
including dates on the 2006 and 2007 Vans Warped TourÖ all before
reaching the age of 20.
Two years after their debut album
won over fans and music critics all over Canada and the US with its
catchy melding of ska-punk anthems, they are back with a new sound, a
new international label, and a very promising future. Hand picked by
Fat Mike himself after hearing some demo recordings, THE FLATLINERS are the newest band to join the Fat Wreck Chords family.
The Great Awake
is the long awaited sophomore release from the Toronto-based quartet.
In keeping with what worked on their last record, the producerís chair
was filled again by Steve Rizun (Hostage Life, The Creepshow, Closet
Monster) but this time around the recording process was not interrupted
by the band membersí high-school careers. After locking themselves in
their rehearsal space for 2 months, the band came out with over 20 new
songs, 12 of which make up the new LP. The new material embraces the
gritty punk rock sound that they have grown up listening to. The
influences ring loud and clear as they unite many forms of underground
rock into one package.
Through punk rock anthems, reggae
jams, hints of hardcore and balls out rock ní roll, this record
showcases the bandís prowess in a variety of styles. The maturity of
the sound and lyrics do not betray their age, while the catchy and
powerful songs do not deny the needs of their ever-growing audience.
With great new music, new alliances, and a relentless touring schedule,
this audience can only grow, as THE FLATLINERS evolve into artists that stand-out among their peers on an international stage.
