Toronto punk/ska/rock band The Flatliners recently performed at The Fest in Gainesville, Florida and in commemoration of the live event, have announced the release of a new EP/7” vinyl called Nerves. The new EP was released on Friday, October 28th and is brought to you by Dine Alone Records. The band had also partnered with Noisey.com to stream the record in advance of its release, and the EP Nerves can now be purchased digitally.
The Flatliners, formed in 2002, have been a growing influence in the Toronto punk/ska/rock movement in the years since then. The band is Chris Cresswell – vocals/guitars, Scott Brigham – guitars, John Darbey – bass and Paul Ramirez – drums and they released their first full-length album, Destroy to Create in 2005. They have been rolling across the landscape and growing their fan base ever since. Nerves is the result of this journey, and The Flatliners are excited to bring you this new EP.
For the first time in about a decade, we spent the majority of the year off the road and at home in 2015. Even though to most it must have seemed like we were laying low for most of the year, 2015 became a year of constant inspiration and ever evolving scenery and surroundings. There was a refreshing, cooling feeling that came over the task at hand and the craft we’ve honed. And with ‘Nerves’ we invite you to dip your toes in the deep end of the pool.
– Chris Cresswell (vocals/guitars)
Over the last several years, The Flatliners have found success through the traditional punk rock, DIY route of nonstop touring and word of mouth promotion which has led to a cult following of fans around the world. With each release, the band stays true to form, with an impressive knack for creating punk/rock anthems that exude that unique punk spirit while still maintaining a fresh, contemporary edge.
The guys took a break from their relentless touring last year to recharge and became inspired all over again. Now, they’re back with their upcoming EP, Nerves, music that will serve to tide fans over until they released their next full-length album and remind everyone why they started following The Flatliners in the first place.
