It's been over two years since we've been graced with new material from Straight Line Stitch, but don't hold it against the Tennessee metallers for making any of us wait. They've been out on the road with little to no break in support of 'When Skies Wash Ashore' since it first hit shelves in 2008.

Known for for their relentless intensity -- one that seems to never let up live -- many have feared the band would embrace too much melody on their forthcoming album. Well Noisecreep is proud to premiere 'Conversion,' and though melody is there, a true balance has been achieved. So fear not, the brutality is fully intact.

"It's definitely more aggressive," frontwoman Alexis Brown said of 'The Fight of Our Lives,' while in the early stages of writing before the band went off to record with Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Walls Of Jericho). Though no release date has been announced, 'The Fight of Our Lives' should be expected by spring or early summer.

Straight Line Stitch hit the road with Nonpoint tomorrow in Melbourne, Fla.
