Since the bands inception (the late 90’s), German melodic skate punkers Straightline have been dousing the punk scene with a unique Thrash Metal-Melodic Punk sound with tons of blistering solo’s, blast beats and aggressive vocals to invigorate any fan of fast skate punk. The quartet, who reside in Munich, Germany, have 3 full lengths and 3 EP’s 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 wether 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 eb and flow with the bands amazingly-relentless stage performance. Their latest album “Vanishing Values” hits the streets February 10th via Bird Attack Records, which brings the best styles of their past releases together in a 12 song package designed for one hell of a ride.
