Old Lines stream track “Paint Them Gold” off upcoming album “No Child Left Behind”

Baltimore punks Old Lines (founded by Mitch Roemer, formerly of Pulling Teeth and Ruiner) have just debuted a new track, “Paint Them Gold”, and you can stream it here.

The song is featured on their upcoming album No Child Left Behind, which is set to be released October 14th.

On the track, vocalist Matt Taylor commented:

“Paint Them Gold” is about how large corporations manipulate people into accepting a quick buck or a short term fix while ignoring the big picture. Energy companies are buying up farmland all over the country to start fracking operations, and doing so by taking advantage of struggling families with empty promises of fixing their financial situation. Inevitably, Capitalism will always win and the farmers will lose more and more until they are left with nothing. This song is a plea for all of us to start considering the damage that will come from looking for an easy way out, and a battle cry to end the  cooperation with those who would sooner destroy our earth than help anything that lives on it.

The band’s last release, their “If You See Something, Say Something” EP, was released last October via Reptilian Records.
