The Flats Drop Surprise New EP 'Auburn in the Everlast' for Free


On Friday, Junuary 6th, The Flats, a five-piece alternative/indie-pop from Toledo, Ohio released their latest EP, Auburn in the Everlast completely free of charge.

Taking everyone by surprise, the band dropped news of the record in complete obscurity a few days ago along with the announcement of 3 brand new music videos as well. Releasing a single video each day culminating in the release of the EP on the 6th, you can download The Flats’ record, Auburn in the Everlast, for free on their bandcamp!

Auburn in the Everlast showcases the band at the top of their game. Drawing influences from bands like The Cure, The National, and even Third Eye Blind, there’s something to be said about this type of introspective and mature music that is well refined, tight, and produced in all the right ways without having its authenticity taken away. Founder/Singer Chris Kerekes explains that the new EP is about him entering a new phase of his life. It’s about moving forward and acknowledging the people who have come into his life just as much as those who have left and taking responsibility for all of his actions that have led him to this point of trying to distance himself from the negativity. 

On top of a brand new EP and 3 new music videos, The Flats are also embarking on a short tour with Mat Kerekes (of Citizen) and Elder Brother (The Story So Far side project) and will be hitting Philly on the 13th.  

You can check out the entire tour schedule in the poster below.

The Flats are starting off 2017 with an explosion, and everyone here at The Hook can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring them. For any and all information regarding The Flats and so much more, keep it tuned here at The Hook.
