Notice of Disconnection
Since 1999 Mainline has developed their unique blend of Southern California styles to bring you their latest work Notice of Disconnection 2006. For those who crave organization we would call our genre new school Southern California melodic rock metal tech punk or Mainline for short. We do what we want. We started in the living room of a townhouse in Hemet, CA shaking our neighbor's pictures off her wall. Back then it was Bryan, Jeff and myself (Mike). Before then Bryan and Ciamak had been in a couple of different bands together and Jeff had been jamming in bands for about eight years. I was the only person with zero experience; just a few books full of lyrics and an acute inability to sing in key. So we continued jamming and sticking beer bottle caps into the stucco. Later we added Ciamak in 2000 and went into Park Hill Studio in Hemet to record our first album. Parkhill was a studio which was way too nice for a fledgling band such as ourselves and an inexperienced singer such as me but it was a great learning experience and helped us learn about real studio recording. We left the studio with ten songs that we never released except to some friends; it was called Dead Before We Die. A few of those songs ended up rerecorded on the 2003 release of Placebo. Placebo was recorded at Studio Nine (then Pamona, now Ontario) by Darrell. Placebo received some nation wide college radio play and was put on the Never Lift Off Road video (30,000 copies in the first run) and on a Throttle music compilation (3000 copies). A year or so after we released Placebo we added Jesse Montano to the band. Jesse had played in a couple of bands with Bryan a few years earlier and fit right in. With the new guitarist we locked ourselves away in our practice room and practiced four nights a week for about two years before going to record our next album Notice of Disconnection. We took our time on this our third recording. Notice of Disconnection was recorded at Sound Sanctuary in Riverside by Phil. Currently we are shopping these independent releases to achieve national distribution/tour support/studio time. Now it's a matter of getting our new music heard while we work on our next album, rock some shows and find a way to quit our day jobs to jam! So that is who we are and what we're about is doing what we want because life is way too short to do anything but love it. If you like what you hear tell a friend and come out to a show and watch us do what we want and help us spread the word so we can make more music. -Mike.
