FLATS album 'Better Living' (out May 7th) and UK tour‏...


Submerged from view working on their first full-length mission statement for pretty much the entirety of 2011, FLATS are ready to re-emerge with the slathering beast that is 'Better Living' (Sweatshop/ One Little Indian, 7th May) - a debut record to rate up there alongside 'Black Sabbath' and Crass' 'Feeding Of The 5,000', as a masterstroke of insular, pure bloody-minded genius.

Says Dan Devine, their singer, "I wouldn't even call us a punk band anymore. There's two ideas of punk: people either think of John Lydon, he's the prerequisite, or they think of piss-heads with pink mohicans sitting on Camden Lock. I'm quite glad to say, I don't think we ever fitted into either of them."
