For weeks we’ve been doling out tracks and preview videos from our favorite Torontonians, THE FLATLINERS! And finally, today is Dead Language release day! Recorded by long-time producer Steve Rizun, Dead Language is the band’s most personal and invigorating record to date. Vocalist Chris Cresswell breaks down each song track by track over at Alternative Press where you can also listen to the album in its entirety. 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 10 years. THE FLATLINERS are bunch of nomads who show no sign of slowing down—check out their extensive touring schedule and read what the band had to say below:
Today is the day that we’ve been waiting for, for about 3 and a half years now. Our patience has paid off it seems, because today Dead Language shows its face to the world, and we couldn’t be more excited or grateful for the response we’ve gotten thus far.
With a couple more US and Canadian shows to go this month, we’ll be heading to Brazil in October, burning down the Northeast with Good Riddance, returning to our favourite weekend of the year – The Fest, and hitting Europe and many more places in the US and Canada, all before the end of the year. All before we hibernate during the harsh Canadian winter, to save up our strength for next year.
If you see us at a show coming up, sing along as loud as you can. Wherever we may be, you’ll make us feel right at home.
