For the next six days leading up to the release of The Starting Line's new album Direction on July 31st, two preview clips a day consisting of stories and commentaries for each song will be posted on RecCenter.com. Don't forget to enter the contest they have going on either.
By now, I'm sure we all know that The Starting Line has a new album, Direction, coming out soon. However, we're going to go back in time and have some fun with another album.

Based on a True Story was the highly-anticipated follow-up to the well-received Say It Like You Mean It. Though it was reviewed well and garnered an unprecedented amount of hype for its first single, "Bedroom Talk," almost nothing happened with the album since.

This spring The Starting Line want to visit your school and rock like it was 1999 (even if it IS 2007). Does your school have a concert or festival in the works for April or early May? If so, The Starting Line is available and interested in turning your party out! Contact the band at thestartingline@redlightmanagement. com and be sure to include contact information and a brief explanation of your event. Submissions will be accepted from appropriate committee members only (i.e. if you aren't on the board/committee/group/team that plans these events, then go to them first and have them send the request). The Starting Line hopes to see you this spring!
