Riding high from their announcement of an upcoming EP, the first one since 2007, The Starting Line have released a new music video for their single, “Anyways.”
“Anyways” is title track from the anticipated EP which is being produced by Will Yip and coming to Downtown Records on February 19th. After their almost 10 year hiatus, The Starting Line was excited to create new music, inspired by the punk scene in Philadelphia, near where the group is from.
Kenny Vasoli, vocalist/bassist, had this to say on the EP, “I had stepped out of writing in TSL’s style for quite a while. I think that time gave me ample opportunity to cleanse my pallet. Eventually I started regaining my appetite for punk music. All of the sudden I was throwing on lots of Cloud Nothings, Desaparacidos and Joyce Manor. I was able to identify what aspects I had always loved about punk music and they reignited my desire to create it. Reproaching the band with this initiative allowed my writing process to flow with no resistance. Lyrically, I was able to vent all of the garbage built up in my psyche through an appropriate channel. I try to keep a peaceful and positive outlook throughout my life. That’s how I’d like to operate all the time, but occasionally life does pan out ideally. TSL songs have always been my place to vent, in hopes that others might share a similar human experience and perspective.”
The EP is available for pre-orders here, and will be released on February 19th. Consider it a belated Valentines Day gift.
