Phoenix based punk band, The Linecutters, have a new album that is worth checking out. Anthill boasts a unique sound that fluctuates between hybrid thrash/punk and ska. Every song holds its own sound and tone, making Anthill more than an album that you can listen to often, this is potentially your new favorite download. Its annihilation of the repetition that plagues many bands puts Anthill on the short list of sold recommendations for albums to check out this summer. For those of you who can only afford to buy one song at a time, check out “Jet Fuel” and “The Grind” first. Then, go all in and treat yourself to the entire catalogue.

ABOUT THE LINECUTTERS
The Linecutters straight up rock. While they have only been a band for four years, they have turned a corner or two in their short career and now crank out some of the most infectious amalgamations of punk, metal, ska, and hardcore around. With Anthill, Linecutters are breaking through to another level and there is truly no end in sight. As their debut single and video, “Anxiety” begins to take flight, music fans around the world need to take notice. This is a talented and driven band looking to take over.
The three-piece band from the east valley is made up of Jett Smith, 20, on bass and vocals, Marceliano Festa, 19, on guitar and vocals, and Kaz McClain, 18, on drums got together in the studio with producer Cris Kirkwood (Meat Puppets/Exterminators) and engineer Jeremy Parker to crank out a dozen punk rockin’, ska-tinged tracks guaranteed to put a smile on even the most jaded face. Equal parts Descendents, Leftover Crack, Operation Ivy and a hint of Mastodon, The Linecutters will not disappoint.
