The Starting Line

Watch The Starting Line Cover “Holiday” By The Get Up Kids

At this point in their career as a band, The Starting Line aren’t touring as much as today’s contemporaries, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If there’s one thing that we’ve come to learn from the recent Brand New ordeal, it’s these shows which come close to home [in this case, there's about 60+ miles separating Starland Ballroom from TSL's hometown of Philadelphia] that take on a whole new level of significance to fans. Towards the end of their headlining Christmas show this past Sunday, the pop punk group paid homage to The Get Up Kids through the …

LIVE VIDEO: The Starting Line – “Luck” [New Song]

After seeing the Starting Line a few weeks ago at the second Detroit date, I left completely satisfied. It was a fantastic performance with a killer set list.

That being said, I would have loved to hear a new tune called “Luck.” So far, it has only been played at a handful of dates on the Say It Like You Mean It Tour and a few shows in early 2011.

For those who didn’t get to see it live on either tour, we have a video for your home enjoyment. Check it out below.…

It seems like 2012 is the Fall of ten year anniversary tours.

Premiering at the top of the day on AP, “Favorites Die” is a song written by Kill Paradise about the downfall of one of their favorite bands, The Starting Line. Member Bryce Hoops explains:

We wrote “Favorites Die” because it seemed like a lot of our favorite bands were starting to fall victim to the music industry and break up. Specifically, our favorite band The Starting Line. Nick and I watched their DVD/documentary Somebody’s Gonna Miss Us and immediately started writing lyrics
