The Flatliners were making music together before they were old enough to drive a car. Before they were old enough to buy alcohol they had already released two albums: 2005's Destroy to Create (Stomp Records) and their 2007 Fat Wreck debut The Great Awake. Since then this Toronto-based four piece have toured the world enough to make even the most road-savvy bands homesick.
With an impressive road resume that boasts tours along side punk icons like NOFX and Bad Religion, The Flatliners continue to mature and progress, an evolution obvious on their new Fat 7" Cynics. "We usually catch ourselves writing parts that may be a bit more challenging to play at first, but we're up to it. We're constantly trying to be better at our respective instruments and keep things interesting for ourselves. That's the fun part of writing your own songs. You can do whatever the hell you want." said singer Chris Cresswell. Recorded again by Steve Rizun at Drive Studios, who has worked with the band on all previous releases, the three songs on Cynics are sure to impress and intrigue old fans and new listeners alike. And with cover art by Richard Minino (Horesbites) you can be sure it will look just as good as it sounds.
It seems all the hard work has paid off as The Flatliners will head out on tour again this year in support of Cynics, and soon their third full length album Cavalcade (April 13, 2010 via Fat Wreck) with a handful of American dates, their first trip to Australia, their fourth trip to Europe/UK, and a stint on this summer's Warped Tour. "It's funny to think that this has become our lives." says Cresswell, but that seems to be exactly what's happened and with a new full length slated for 2010 The Flatliners show no signs of slowing down.
A WILHELM SCREAM
How does one gauge the success of a band pushing the envelope of a genre that receives
little to no credit by the mainstream media? In the case of A Wilhelm Scream, the answer
is "Who cares?" – As a band playing punk rock for over a decade, members Trevor
Reilly, Nuno Pereira, Nick Angelini, Brian Robinson and Mike Supina haven't focused
on success, image or whatever bandwagon a group can jump on to get their music into
the ears of listeners: It's the ideal of music from an honest place, playing to the kids who
want to hear more than a simple love song, or want an opinion rammed down their
Despite operating just below the radar A Wilhelm Scream have carved out a reputation as
one of the best live bands around, bolstered by their staggeringly rich albums of ultratechnical
melodic punk rock firestorms. Playing 250+ worldwide shows each year, the
band posses a work ethic best described as 'heroic'.
