New song: The Flatliners – “Carry The Banner” off upcoming album “Cavalcade”

the-flatliners-cavalcadeCanadian punk outfit The Flatliners have debuted the song Carry The Banner off of their upcoming album Cavalcade on their MySpace page.

The band also gives us a little backstory on the song. They write,

“Back in the Great Depression, responsible, successful men became vagrants. Everyone was cast out like an economic-turned-social eclipse. When these people without homes or any sentiments of hope couldn’t find a safe place to sleep at night during these trivial times, their only option left was to ‘carry the banner.’ This meant they’d risk sleeping on the streets while trying to avoid being locked up for vagrant charges or worse, being killed.”

The Flatliners are also going on a Canadian tour in support of their new album Cavalcade from Fat Wreck Chords, to be released April 13th. Check their Dying Scene show page to see when they’ll be rolling through your town.
