It’s been few months since The Starting Line released their new song “Anyways.” Now, the group is giving their fans the official music video for the new track. On Tuesday (Feb. 2), the Philadelphia-based band joined forces with Fuse to premiere the new music video. The video featured the band doing what they do best: putting on a show for their dedicated fan base. Watch the video for “Anyways” below.
“Anyways” is the title track from the band’s upcoming 7-inch which is due out on Feb. 19 through Downtown Records. In conjunction with the video’s premiere, frontman Kenny Vasoli sat down with Fuse to talk about a lot of things like the future of the band. As it turns out, a new full-length album is not in the band’s immediate future. Instead, Vasoli said told the media outlet that the group hasn’t exactly spoken about it.
“We haven’t really had too many conversations about it. I would be interested in doing another 7-inch, something more focused,” said Vasoli. “I like that it’s not a single and it’s not really an EP or a record. The whole package of a 7-inch is a cool way to let out some new material because the people who really care about it are going to hunt for something like that.”
As of now, Vasoli says that he’s solely focused on his other band, Vacationer. According to the singer, the act is his “bread and butter.” Vacationer will be hitting the high seas with Paramore, New Found Glory, Lights, and CHVRCHES for Paramore’s PARAHOY! cruise next month.
Earlier this week The Starting Line confirmed the release of their first album in eight years. Now, the group is giving fans the change to hear the first song off of the highly anticipated LP. On Thursday (Dec. 17), the Philadelphia band released the title track of their upcoming 7-inch, Anyways. The song was released exclusively to Noisey earlier in the day, but is now available for streaming below.
Check out “Anyways” below and let us know how you feel about the band’s “return” track.
News of The Starting Line’s new music comes well over a year after the band teased fans about it. During their holiday show last year in their hometown, frontman Kenny Vasoli announced that they had new material and that it would be released in the new year. At the time of the announcement, the new year was 2015 which is now a couple of weeks away from wrapping up.
during a recent interview, Vasoli was asked about the direction of the new material, and according to him it will stick to what they are good at; punk rock. “It’s still punk rock. We’re always going to sound like The Starting Line,” he explained. “I feel like I’ve stepped back far enough that I can really identify with what I liked about pop punk and what I appreciate about it now.”
Anyways is scheduled to be released on Feb. 5, 2016 through Downtown Records. Teh three-track 7-inch was produced by Will Yip and is The Starting Line’s first set of new songs since 2007’s Direction.
