Destroy To CreateFat Wreck Chords
***It’s hard to believe that THE FLATLINERS have already been at it for a decade, but the band just celebrated their 10th anniversary. In the 5 years that these young punks have been on Fat they’ve had their foot firmly on the gas, managing to churn out 2 full-lengths and 3 singles, maintaining a relentless tour schedule, evolving and honing their sound as a band, and winning over droves of new fans. Though, their beginnings as a band had bit more modest pace. Despite being barely old enough to drive when they formed, the band managed to gain enough notoriety to land a record deal and after 3 years playing and writing together they recorded their first full-length Destroy to Create. The album was a true launch pad for The Flatliners both stylistically and in establishing a broader fan base. Destroy to Create is full of youthful exuberance and aggression, reflecting a bit more of the band’s ska/punk foundation than their later work. Due to its raw energy and passion, many Flatliners fans nostalgically still identify Destroy to Create as their favorite release by the band. Unfortunately many fans haven’t ever gotten their hands on the album because of its limited distribution. Not to mention the fact that it was never released on
vinyl. So, we here at Fat figured, what better way to celebrate the band’s 10th anniversary than to finally release Destroy to Create on vinyl? Now, at last, long time enthusiasts can fill out their vinyl collections and newer fans can experience this ska/punk gem for the first time. Includes a download.
