Old Lines

Baltimore’s Old Lines is the current band of Mitch Roemer (ex-Pulling Teeth, Ruiner), and they’ll be releasing a new album, No Child Left Behind, on October 14 via No Sleep (pre-order), their first for the label. It follows last year’s If You See Something, Say Something EP on Reptilian Records. The album’s new single “The Hunt(ed)” is still the kind of blaring hardcore we’ve come to expect from Old Lines and Mitch’s past projects, but this time around they’re even more metallic and eviler sounding. Here’s what vocalist Matt Taylor has to say about it:

The Hunt(ed) is a gut reaction to the sadness and rage of wolf hunting. Not only have we demonized these animals, creating fear and promoting misinformation, but we have also transformed their systemic slaughter into a tragic display of human imperialism. Our collective desire to “conquer” nature, and infantile need to prove our superiority has only served to separate us from the natural world, and will become one more nail in our coffins when the tables turn.
All living things in our world deserve a chance to live freely, and we will never find peace of any sort until we realize that.

That track makes its premiere in this post and can be streamed below.

Old Lines will also be going on a tour which kicks off in NYC on October 24 at The Hideaway (1121 Myrtle Ave). No word yet on other bands or if Old Lines will be playing any other NYC shows while they’re here, considering that’s the week of CMJ. After that, they’ll make their way to The Fest, where they play The Atlantic on 11/1 with Fucking Invincible, Ex-Breathers, Direct Effect and others.
