German melodic skate punkers Straightline have announced they’ll be releasing their upcoming album, Vanishing Values, worldwide on February 10, 2017 through Bird Attack Records.
In anticipation of the album’s release, you can now stream the first single “Not Afraid” below, as well as grab the track for “Name Your Price” download on Bandcamp.
Since the bands inception in the late ’90s, Straightline have been dousing the punk scene with a unique thrash metal / melodic punk sound with tons of blistering solos, blast beats and aggressive vocals to invigorate any fan of fast skate punk. The quartet, who reside in Munich, Germany, have three full-lengths and three EPs under their belt, filled with fiery metal riffs built on a punk rock backbone.
Having toured several times throughout Europe, Latin America, Japan and played festivals such as Punk Rock Holiday and Mighty Sounds, these guys are anything but rookies; they are veterans of shred and their continuing fan base growth brings in metal-heads and punk-rockers alike. They are never afraid to throw in a unique influence to their sound whether it be reggae, funk, jazz, which seems to set them apart from their peers and it brings an interesting dynamic to their live shows as the fans seem to ebb and flow with the bands amazingly-relentless stage performance.
Their latest album Vanishing Values brings the best styles of their past releases together in a 12-song package designed for one hell of a ride.
