On September 17th, we’ll be releasing Dead Language, the fourth studio album from our favorite Torontonians, THE FLATLINERS. Dead Language is the follow-up to the band’s acclaimed 2010 album Cavalcade. Recorded by long-time producer Steve Rizun, Dead Language is the band’s most personal and invigorating record to date. The album features 13 new tracks filled with intelligent songwriting, arena-sized choruses, big guitars and a distinct musical fluidity that comes from playing together as a band for over 10 years. Vocalist Chris Cresswell had this to say, “Dead Language is the culmination of 10 years of hard work – our first album in 3 years and our 4th overall. We were finally able to capture our sound and energy as a touring band on record, having recorded the majority of these songs live off the floor. This was easily the most fun we’ve ever had recording and I think that comes through in these songs.” Known for putting on a killer live show, THE FLATLINERS will bring their “perfect concoction of break-neck guitar rhythms, complementary solos, sing-along lyrics and danceable interludes” to a slew of cities over the next few months. Check the awesome cover art below designed by Richard Minino of Black Axe/Horsebites design.
