Midline CD Release Party 

Midline buries the red line at the Big Easy on September 9

It's funny how fickle people can be sometimes. A band who has only been around a short time may be written off due to a lack of experience, and a band who has been around more than a dozen years may be considered stale. But after hearing Wreckage, the new release from seasoned professionals Midline, it's clear they've recaptured the high-energy of their early days.

Vocalist Anthony Fagiano and guitarist Scott Elliott started the band back more than a decade ago and enlisted bassist Stymie in '97 and drummer Fred Fischer in '98. Since then, they've opened for the likes of Motley Crue and Breaking Benjamin and they'll be opening for Rob Zombie at the Big Easy on September 20. They've played some pretty major festivals including SXSW (it was because of their outstanding performance at SXSW they were offered a Jagermeister sponsorship). They've toured around the country, they've seen their songs debut high on various record industry charts, they've received radio play, they've put out four albums, and they've stayed friends--something few bands with such an illustrious track record can boast. But, maybe most importantly, with this new album, Midline has remained true to their signature rock sound but has also seamlessly blended in different vocal techniques--Fagiano's voice is stronger than ever--instrumentation and rhythms to create their best album to date.
