Public Records – Flatliners Interview


The Flatliners have been playing music together for ten years. After forming in high school the band began touring by age 17 and were signed to Fat Wreck Chords at 19. Now at 25, The Flatliners spend most of their lives on the road, connecting with fans and playing the music they love. We talked to frontman Chris Creswell about feeling “like an old man at the ripe age of 25,” meeting Fat Mike for the first time and the band’s new, “more concentrated” upcoming album.

Public Records: You guys have been playing together since you were teenagers, how has that influenced the way you play and create music? How do you avoid getting sick of each other after so long?

Chris Creswell: Knowing each other for so long, and especially for a long period of time before we even started the band, has served both as our secret weapon and also the reason for a plethora of brotherly misunderstandings. We all know each other very well, which can be both perfect for a heavy touring schedule and also a very frustrating thing!

It’s really interesting to see how we’ve all grown as people, and as musicians. In a way, we’ve grown up on record, and we’ve done it all together. I believe it’s to the point now where it’s much easier to tell what each other is thinking. And that makes the songwriting process very fun and interesting. It’s truly a group effort, and we’re all at the same level.
