Posted in News with tags , , on May 24, 2011 by Randy

 (New York, NY) — STRAIGHT LINE STITCH have debuted a brand new music video for their next single “One Reason” off their latest record The Fight Of Our Lives which came out earlier this year. Veteran director and band manager Dale ‘Rage’ Resteghini took on the directing duties. SIRIUSXM Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin also makes a cameo appearance.

Head over to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL website and watch it exclusively HERE.

Watch a sneak peak behind the scenes video HERE as well!

The band has no qualms about staying on the road this year. They recently announced off-dates with the one and only IN FLAMES during their run on the 2011 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL. They’ve recently completed Revolver magazine’s “Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock: Hell Hath No Fury” tour supporting IN THIS MOMENT and have been added to this year’s DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL exclusive lineup. All dates can be found here.

The band’s latest record The Fight Of Our LIves came out on March 22, 2011 to much critical praise. “‘The Fight of Our Lives’ is a good example of what happens when modern American metal-core is performed with passion and intensity,” says OUTBURN MAGAZINE. The band released their first single “Conversion” soon after with avideo to follow, also directed by Resteghini.

STRAIGHT LINE STITCH originally hailing from Knoxville, TN, features Alexis Brown on vocals, Seth Thacker and Kris Norris on guitar, Jason White on bass, and Kanky Lora on drums.
