Customer Reviews


The two new songs sound a lot like Great Awake, but Chris's voice really shines here. I just want to know why 407 was not included on Great Awake, it is an absolutely incredible song. It's got ska, the reggaeish stuff from GA, and the fast punk. This EP just gets me soo excited for the new album in 2010. Definitely buy this.


Ok everyone don't listen to skabassist because this EP The Flatliners put out is definitely not pop punk/alternative. It's all punk rock, They definitely don't sound like Blink 182, Green Day or The Loved Ones. Those bands, (which are good in their own ways) are what I would classify as pop punk/alternative. Plus how could they be sell outs if they are on Fat Wreck Chords, which is also definitely not a sell out record label. Just because a label has better recording equipment and makes a record sound better doesn't make a band a sell out. Plus the Flatliners aren't mainstream. As far as this EP goes every song on it was excellent. If I had to agree with skabassits on anything it would be that I do miss the Destroy to Create days too. I do prefer their old and more ska-core songs. But every band has a right to progress in music style and its not up to use to decide how they want to grow. The band isn't a bunch of teenagers anymore. If they want to change they should. The song Filthy Habits is awesome, probably the best song on the EP! And 407 is a great track too! reminds me of Leftover Crack for some reason. Not the same but a good song to mix with their music. Even though the band is playing much more punk now you can still hear their older ska influences in Filthy Habits and 407. Definitely recommend this EP to anyone new to this band. The Flatliners are great. Again I still prefer their older stuff but the direction they are headed is not bad at all, they write great music! 5 star EP good work guys!

What happened to this band?

They used to be the best modern ska-core/punk band around (way back in the Destroy to Create days). Now they're wannabe pop-punk alternative or something... sellouts.


Formed: 2002 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Canada's Flatliners play aggressive but melodic old-school, pre-hardcore punk rock songs, enlivened with the occasional dubby bassline or inverted ska rhythm. Comparisons to London Calling, Sandinista!, early Members, or the Ruts are more apt than more overtly reggae-influenced acts like the Specials or Madness. After forming the band in Toronto, Ontario in 2002, singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Cresswell, lead guitarist Scott Brigham, bassist Jon Darbey, and drummer Paul Ramirez gigged across Canada's...
