SXSW is just around the corner and weâre excited to announce that weâll be joining the chaos. Normally, we only manage to get a band or two out to Austin but thanks to Harvest Of Hope being a week earlier, most of our bands were already on tour. Our all ages showcase will be held at Emoâ s Annex on Saturday, March 20th and if you donât have a badge, never fear as a limited amount of tickets will be available at doors. Weâve recruited the help of some friends with Cobra Skulls kicking off the party and Riverboat Gamblers closing it out. More details to follow in the next few weeks!
THE FLATLINERS have completed work on their new album Cavalcade. It’s packed with 12 infectious songs and will be released on April 13th. Check back soon as weâll be unveiling a brand new track in the next few weeks. Read what Chris, singer of THE FLATLINERS, had to say:
When we were on tour last March, we met Joey from Full House (aka Dave Coulier) in a bar in Cleveland. I drunkenly slipped him a copy of ‘The Great Awake’ and we began talking about music and Canada. He turned out to be a pretty cool dude, other than ironically wearing a Betty Ford Clinic shirt while drinking red wine. Anyways, after Uncle Joey left the bar that night, the jokes began that we would name our new record ‘Dave Coulier Has Our Last Record.’ Once we sobered up in the morning and realized that was an awful idea, we decided to name our new album ‘CAVALCADE’. And we are beyond stoked to announce that it will be coming out this April on FatWreck of course.
Since every record is vaguely conceptual even if you’re not going for the painful uber-concept-record thing like Coheed and Cambria, and since we basically live like homeless people while we’re on tour most of each year, ‘Cavalcade’ has taken on the overall theme of unity through disconnectedness. Happiness in uncertain times. Humanity is flawed but we can all still party, right? That’s what we wrote about, and that’s how we live. We love what we do an couldn’t be happier with the way it has all turned out.
This record has been quite the experience for us already and it hasn’t even been released yet. To record an album between tours can become a bit of a fucked up process, but its been really cool to take our time with this one and include a lot of friends in the making. The writing and recording of ‘Cavalcade’ saw different seasons, exciting new jams, and now that we’ve announced it, an overall sense of accomplishment and relief. We were lucky enough to be able to include our friends from some great bands such as Dillinger Four, Cancer Bats, A Wilhelm Scream, Permanent Bastards, The Snips, Junior Battles and The Expos/Cavaliers, and have them all contribute a little something each. Cheers to all our friends for singing/playing on the record, to Fat Mike for coming up to work on stuff with us, to Ted Janik for helping us with all the technical difficulties, to Steve Rizun for being a fucking machine, and to Alex Snelgrove and John Meloche for making our record look incredible. We can’t thank these people enough for stoking us out and fueling our happiness. Most of all though,cheers to everyone out there who is as excited about this record as we are. We can’t wait for you to sing along with us.

Tony Sly, singer of No Use For A Name is set to release his debut solo album titled 12 Song Program on February 16th. Spin.com is currently premiering a brand new track titled âVia Munichâ and you can download it for free by clicking here! Karina Denike lends her vocals to this track and others on this release. Many of you may remember Karina Denike best from her Dance Hall Crasher days but she has been singing on her own for years and you can check her web site out here. Tony Sly had this to say about collaborating with Karina:
Karina Denike sings background vocals on this song as well as 6 others on the record. I wanted to give the whole record that old style feel when a female had to sing the high parts, long before pitch-shifting and auto tuning was invented.
