Straight Line Stitch will be playing June 2 at Liquids Club in Montgomery.
The band consists of vocalist Alexis Brown, bass guitarist Jason White, drummer Ian Shuirr and guitarists Kris Hawkins and Kris Norris.
“On tour, we’ll be out for two months just trying to get busy,” Brown said.
She describes their tour as very energetic.
“We take our performance really seriously,” Brown said. “We try to have fun and just hang out. It’s always a fun vibe. We know that it’s our job, but we have fun doing it.”
The band played its first stop of the tour Tuesday in Bowling Green, Ky.
“It went really well,” Brown said. “It was fun; it was a really intimate show and a good time, a great way to start off the first day of the tour.”
The tour follows the success of their second album, released in 2011 and titled “The Fight of Our Lives.”
The album reached No. 5 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
“We wrote the album ‘The Fight of Our Lives’ at a time when we were sort of really angry,” Brown said. “We just put out an album that was just talking about what we’ve gone through and just about the fight, you know, having to fight for things that you love.”
The band is working on a third album now, and Brown said while they are on the road they do a lot of brainstorming together.
They are hoping to be in the studio recording by the end of the year.
“My favorite thing about the band is definitely the touring, the camaraderie, the kinship that we have as a band,” she said. “Another favorite thing is just having the freedom of expression and writing. Those are my favorite things about the band … You just go through adventures every day.”
The band originates from Knoxville, Tenn. It has existed since 1999, but has gone through major changes since then.
Brown joined as vocalist around 2003.
“They were always playing shows,” Brown said of the band before she joined. “I met them through my old band from my hometown in Clarksville, Tenn. We put on some shows and just hit it off. We became really good friends.
“My band was falling apart. They had singers before me … and I guess when they weren’t really working out, they called me to try out. It was funny anyways because when we first met them I fell in love with the band and always wanted to join. I’ve never looked back.”
