I WALK THE LINE
Hailing from Helsinki, Finland, I Walk The Line took their name from the legendary Man in Black, Johnny Cash, feeling it described the honest straightforward nature of the punk rock they played. Apart from dressing all in black, there is little else that nods to the classic country icon. The band plays dark resonant, melodic, edgy punk, pulling from such diverse influences as The Clash, Murder City Devils and Social Distortion. Formed in 2003, they started as a side-project from some of the members' other bands, Wasted and Manifesto Juke Box and quickly established themselves as a local must-see live act, bringing together fans of punk, hardcore and rock whenever they played.
IWTL released their debut album Badlands on Combat Rock Industry in 2004 and embarked on several tours of Germany and the UK, introducing the band to a wider international audience. Desolation Street was released in Germany and Finland in 2006 on Combat Rock Industry and Gearhead is proud to release the record Jan. 23 2007 to the rest of the world and North America. The band delivers powerful hooks wrapped in a flood of guitars and keyboards on this release, which is their second full-length release.
