Straighten Things Out Bio:
STRAIGHTEN THINGS OUT started out back in 2001, mainly influenced by 90’s Swedish and Californian movements.
By mixing pure melodic, fast, technical efficient Punk Rock and pop, rock alternative, death or heavy metal, the Frenchies offer a wide range of explosive songs with various tones and real unique shades, combined to past and current personal experiences, political activist and anti-globalization lyrics.
After a first self-produced EP in 2003, STO enters ALLPROD Studio in October 2005, to record its first album. Graham CHURCHILL, at that timing drumming for Belvedere, comes over to track drums for the 13 songs of “Dawn of a New Hope”, released on the Japanese up growing Label “Bells On Records” in July 2006.
From that day on, the quartet starts getting renowned as one of the new Top Gun European Melodic Punk Rock bands, by playing countless powerful shows through two successful European Tours including more than 80 shows, supported by bands such as The Indecision Alarm, Enemy Alliance, High Five Drive, Chief, PMX, Giving Chase, Easy Way to name a few…
Straighten Things Out enters KALLAGHAN Studio in May 2008 and records the six tunes for the longed-for EP “I think we better split up” (Co-produced by Kal MASSABO). This new EP allies powerful Melodic Punk Rock to more alternative catchy and poppy pushy tunes, giving the band a new range of shades and tones, and bringing it a brand new dimension.
After a few changes made in the line-up, Straighten Things Out is back on tour across Europe between February and May 2009 supporting MILLENCOLIN, NO USE FOR A NAME, THIS IS A STANDOFF, MUTE, HIGH FIVE DRIVE... to promote the new material, released on January, 21st.
