Since their breakout release The Great Awake, THE FLATLINERS have been touring the world with a tenacity that would make the most road-hardened veterans weary. Multiple jaunts around the US, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia have served to amass an ever increasing fan-base. The only possible downside of the bands relentless trek is that it left them with little time to record their follow up full-length. Fortunately, at long last the wait is over with the release of Cavalcade. The twelve tracks on Cavalcade reflect the maturation THE FLATLINERS have undergone over the past three years with intelligently crafted songs that still brandish the bands youthful passion and exuberance. The forceful guitars, gruff vocals, and vigorous rhythms that have become the hallmark of THE FLATLINERS are elevated to an advanced level on Cavalcade and will be recognized by fans and critics alike. The songs lean toward a pithy, more thought out sound, without losing a bit of the catchiness that shrouds THE FLATLINERS past material. From the anthemic choruses on Carry the Banner and Monumental, the powerful cadence of Shithawks, to the reggae-infused He Was a Jazzman, Cavalcade showcases the vast dimension of THE FLATLINERS songwriting prowess. Fresh off a full US tour with the Dropkick Murphys and Youth Brigade, THE FLATLINERS already have plans to hit the road hard with a headlining US tour booked in support of Cavalcade.
