Founder/Singer Chris Kerekes had this to say about the new EP:
“The Flats new EP is about entering into a new phase of my life. A rejuvenated- energetic phase while still acknowledging the reasons why I felt that the quality of my life was poor prior. That includes removing people from my life, having new people come into my life, feeling like I was finally living again and also taking a hard look in the mirror and taking responsibility for what I did to create the situation. The EP title “Auburn In The Everlast” is intended to abstractly say “negative things forever in the past.” The idea conceptually came from the thought/feeling that red or auburn can be associated with negativity and the past is something that fits the description of something that is “everlasting.”

The Flats are a five piece alternative/indie-pop band from Toledo OH that draw influence from acts like The Cure, The National, Third Eye Blind, Mat Kerekes and Brian Fallon. The line up consists of founder and singer/songwriter Chris Kerekes, Josh Wilson (guitar/synth), Jake Cervetto (bass), Brett Kaminski (guitar), and Mat Kerekes (drums). Forming in November 2014 with the release of their debut LP “Liberation And The House In Blue”, in two short years The Flats have toured in support of several staple bands (Have Mercy, Transit, Somos, Microwave) and on their own for two co-headlining runs. With the release of their new surprise EP “Auburn In The Everlast”, The Flats have taken a step forward to create a more introspective and mature atmosphere for their strong hooks to swim in.
