Punks The Flatliners are marking their return to Fat Wreck Chords with “Performative Hours”, the brand new single/video from their upcoming album, New Ruin, out August 5.

Vocalist Chris Cresswell shares:

“Returning to FAT for the release of our new album New Ruin is like the family reunion you actually want to attend; the reboot we can all get behind. It just feels like home to us.”

Cresswell explains the single:

“There’s a desperation that’s run rampant within us as people, and it’s the need to be validated. A shadow of what’s really real, a version of the truth, a performance at all hours. As the world around us grows more mechanically able to connect, we as people will abuse that power to simply brag or complain, feverishly attempting to create a moment instead of just enjoying one. It feels as though we’ve found ourselves in an age of insincerity, with people putting in the hours for nothing more than upholding an image. Time now ticks in performative hours.”
