“I was born in Chicago. The kind of place that lives in your blood and bones,” reflects Chris McCaughan when discussing his new album, Neon Fiction. As we gear up to release Neon Fiction next Tuesday, you can get into the vibe by watching the lyric video for “Life in the Embers” below. SUNDOWNER describes it as “a song of acceptance, of coming to terms with things you can’t change, of a past you can’t alter.” And if you’re lucky enough to be in the San Francisco Bay Area next week, come see SUNDOWNER perform at the Fat warehouse on Friday, Sept. 6 and then attend the record release show at Bottom of the Hill on Saturday, Sept. 7.

The Onion is premiering the second new song from SUNDOWNER’s Neon Fiction. Head here to listen to “Cemetery West” and read about the impetus behind the lyrics from Chris McCaughan below:
I was born in Chicago. The kind of place that lives in your blood and bones. And I did grow up, like the song says, in a northside neighborhood just west of a cemetery. [Daniel] Burnham is buried there. So “Cemetery West” is a song of origins, of half-truths, of histories that live with us as we create new ones. It’s about an unalterable past and uncertain future, about choosing to find a way forward with the darkness on your heels. Maybe, more simply, it’s about a trigger that finally clicks over after so many years of your index finger poised against it.
With bated breath, we wait to unleash the new Flatliners album Dead Language. We’ve already given you a taste of blood; now you can sneak a peek at how these young professionals conduct themselves after nightfall. Don’t miss The Flatliners on tour with dates including Riot Fest, CMJ and the FEST!
Ladies and gentleman, it is release day for Propagandhi’s classic first album How to Clean Everything!
