New Music from The Starting Line

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

New Album, Direction, in stores July 31st
Listen to the first single, “Island” today

Suburban Pennsylvania quartet The Starting Line was formed some eight years ago by bassist and lead singer Kenny Vasoli. Guitarists Matt Watts and Mike Golla, and drummer Tom Gryskewicz, his friends and original band mates, have been along for the ride ever since. The band sold nearly 300,000 copies of their 2002 debut, Say It Like You Mean It, and scored a surprise hit with “The Best Of Me,” a pop-punk anthem that was embraced by MTV. The Starting Line released their sophomore album, Based on a true Story, in 2005 and were asked to headline the Van’s Warped tour that year. In early January 2006, the band signed with Virgin, where they just finished recording their newest full-length album, Direction. “This new record is definitely something we are all very proud of,” says Vasoli. “Just the thought of what could happen with this is making us really excited. We really hope that it can reach all sorts of new people.”

After splitting from Geffen in 2005, The Starting Lined signed with Virgin, who collaborated with the band on their latest album, Direction. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with Howard Benson, a Grammy nominated producer who’s worked with everyone from My Chemical Romance to the All-American Rejects. With infectious songs like “What You Want,” and instantly memorable tracks like “Island,” Direction unquestionably sounds like the type of record that could introduce The Starting Line to a whole new audience.

Direction will be in stores July 31st. “Island,” The Starting Line’s latest single, can be heard today!
