Proud Toronto metalheads, The Flatliners release a 2-song EP proving to their loyal fanbase that they’re alive and well … and rocking as hard as ever. Featuring the single, “Hang My Head,” Nerves shows off singer Chris Cresswell’s growling voice, and the band’s angsty ability to kick in a few speakers.  Already on the road, The Flatliners add a little fuel to an already burning flame with this new release.  


Hailing from Richmond Hill and Brampton, this heavy rock band has been prominent in the Toronto scene since the early 2000’s.  The group has cemented themselves a cult following around their own city, as well as across the globe.  With a sound that promises everything from classic punk, tasters from screamo-induced heavy metal, all the way to your occasional ska/dub undertone, The Flatliners stand out in a sea of rock ’n’ rollers.  Having a strong background of making music together, dating back to their adolescent years, the band has seen a great number of successes.  Such successes include a Juno nomination for the 2014 album, Dead Language.  


“Hang My Head” offers similar stylings from the band.  It hits hard, like a real punk-rock, mosh-pitt inducing song.  The track plays upon The Flatliners rock side, focusing on loud crash symbols, and driving guitar riffs, rather than their alternate ska sound.  With Cresswell’s vocals at the forefront, the song puts it’s energy on the nervousness that comes with the fear of death.  “Yeah all my friends are nervous wrecks/Preoccupied with looming death certificates/Of whatever is next,” sings Cresswell.
