Rumble into Monday with new releases from The Flatliners and Western Addiction! First up, the double A-side single, Resuscitation of the Year, is given the proper run down by singer Chris Cresswell of The Flatliners:
“Take it from me, there’s nothing better to kick off your 2015 like a song from 2013! But just to spice it up a bit, we’re including an unreleased song from the Dead Language sessions called “Fangs”. It took us almost 2 weeks to decide the fate of “Fangs” back in 2013. Should we keep it on the record? Should we save it for something else? It was without a doubt the toughest call to make overall surrounding Dead Language. And now for your listening pleasure, it’s yours. Loud and gnarly, so crank it up and bang your head. We were also able to work with our good buddy Grey Days who produced some incredible artwork for this double-record-cover 7”. To us, this release is equal parts “Resuscitation of the Year” and “Fangs,” so we wanted to showcase that through the art. Feast your eyes. Feast your ears. Feast your brain.”
Next stop, we have a brand new three song 7" from San Francisco’s own Western Addiction! I’m Not the Man That I Thought I’d Be. The title track originally appeared on our limited edition 10" at FEST in 2014 and was premiered by Revolver! If you’ve been gnashing your teeth to hear more, the wait is over, because the release hosts two more brand new songs, one of which—“Clatter and Hiss”—is a demo of a song that will appear on their forthcoming album and which also marks the first appearance of bassist Tony Teixeira on a WA recording. Check out an extensive interview with singer Jason Hall about touring, writing lyrics and more, by Ryan Young (Off With Their Heads) on his podcast, Anxious & Angry.
These two bands will be tackling Europe together with Lagwagon this March and April!
We’re beyond excited to finally share with you the details of the new Strung Out album, Transmission.Alpha.Delta , to be released on March 24th. The band continues to evolve their patented sound through twelve shredding new songs. Teaming up with producer Kyle Black and laboring for nearly a year in and out of the studio, Strung Out has truly created a career-defining masterpiece, saturated with lightning fast riffs, pummeling rhythms, and impassioned vocals. Completed by an incredible cover painting by singer Jason Cruz, consider this album essential. We’ll be premiering a new song and announcing tour dates soon but in the meantime, read what Strung Out had to say below:
“We are very proud to announce the release of our new album, Transmission.Alpha.Delta. It’s been five years since our last album, and we feel this is the most complete and intense music we have ever created. We will be hitting the road hard this year with tours planned through Spring and Summer, so we will be seeing you all soon!!
