Buffalo post-hardcore rockers Once Upon A Flatline has released a new song and lyric video for “Hang Hymn High,” the third single off of the bands debut EP The Theatre Lucy. Engineered by Nate White, the track is inspired by the jazzy musical “Chicago,” with a serious message about getting help against domestic violence especially while so many are trapped at home during the pandemic.
Consisting of six members with a strong female front, Once Upon A Flatline attempts to combine the madness of Sweeney Todd with the post-metal of My Chemical Romance with each of their larger than life productions. Their other two singles “For The Wretched of The Earth” and “Those Last, Fatal Days” teased parts of “Les Miserables” and “Moulin Rouge,” respectively.
With a music video already released the band is currently in the studio finishing the last of seven songs according to the press release. Each song will keep with the band’s motif of storytelling and all be inspired by a different, famous Broadway musical with a metal twist told by ghosts that haunt The Theatre Lucy.
