STRAIGHT LINE STITCH Seeking New Label Home

Knoxville, Tennessee-based female-fronted metal/hardcore act STRAIGHT LINE STITCH will embark on a U.S. tour on Tuesday, April 24 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The band will be joined on the road by former STRAIGHT LINE STITCH and DARKEST HOUR guitarist Kris Norris, back with the group for two months of shredding alongside Kris Hawkins. Up until the tour begins, STRAIGHT LINE STITCH will continue writing material for its third album, which they hope to be in the studio for by the end of the year.

STRAIGHT LINE STITCH recently re-emerged as free agents looking for a new label home. "I think, as a band, we are looking forward mostly to just getting back to basics, and at the very heart of that is hitting the road and letting everyone know that STRAIGHT LINE STITCH is still going strong," states frontwoman Alexis Brown. "There are some new faces in the mix but the feeling and the essence of the band is still the same, which is to go out and give it all we've got."
