Toronto punk band The Flatliners have been around for quite some time, making loud, melodic, punk rock since for the past decade – and they’re barely in their mid-20’s. Their ska-beginnings with their 2005 debut Destory to Create eventually shifted into melodic punk rock, and since then they’ve released a handful of hard-hitting, repeat-button smashing records. Adding to their continued success, the four friends have recently signed to Dine Alone Records and have now put out a two-track EP / 7″ Nerves.
“Hang My Head” and “Mud” show the band have not changed much over the years, putting together catchy rock melodies into a blender of loud distortion, full-band harmonies, and relentless energy. If anything, I feel like a Cavalcade-esque release might be in the works…Not to mention the soft-to-gritty vocals of lead singer Chris Cresswell is the cherry on top of the band’s infectious punk rock sound.
