The Flatliners are celebrating two decades as a band with the release of their brand new single and video, Performative Hours. The band have also announced the release of their new full length, New Ruin, via Fat Wreck Chords on the 5th August, as well as an extensive run of tour dates that takes in the UK, EU and North America. New Ruin is a shot of adrenaline from a band striking out at outdated institutions and ideologies via pointed lyrics and their heaviest songs to date, attacking each with a ferocity that will surprise even longtime fans.

There’s a desperation that’s run rampant within us as people, and it’s the need to be validated. A shadow of what’s really real, a version of the truth, a performance at all hours. As the world around us grows more mechanically able to connect, we as people will abuse that power to simply brag or complain, feverishly attempting to create a moment instead of just enjoying one. It feels as though we’ve found ourselves in an age of insincerity, with people putting in the hours for nothing more than upholding an image. Time now ticks in performative hours.ll get behind. It just feels like home to us.”

New Ruin can be pre-ordered via Fat Wreck Chords & pre-added / saved through digital platforms
