German emopunk/hardcore outfit SHORELINE are presenting their newest single NEEDLES – a heavy, melancholic icebreaker about a young person navigating their life between late capitalism and the climate crisis.
Produced and mixed by Chris Teti (Anxious, Fiddlehead…) and mastered by Kris Crummett (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends..) SHORELINE are releasing their most mature sounding piece of music so far, further developing their own style of melodic, heavy and riff based music.
Deeply rooted in the DIY hardcore/punk scene, SHORELINE have been playing over 250 shows (and loads of them in squats and basements all across the UK/Europe) in the last couple years and are now getting recognized by a wider audience especially in Germany. The band grew into one of the few european acts playing with scene legends such as Silverstein, Boston Manor or Spanish Love Songs on a regular basis.
With today’s single, SHORELINE are also the first artists from mainland Europe to be signed to PURE NOISE RECORDS. The US label has become a real heavyweight in the international label scene over the past 15 years and has celebrated worldwide success with releases by bands like State Champs, Drug Church, Knocked Loose or The Story So Far. In the course of the new label signing, SHORELINE have extended their contract with Oh Lumiere Publishing and Uncle M and will continue to have their authors’ rights administered worldwide through us and use the Uncle M Shop as a central band shop.
