Toronto’s punk rock band The Flatliners teamed up with San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League for a new song ‘Between Our Teeth.’ The song will be the official Sharks song for the 2023-2024 season, and it will be played at every home game. To celebrate, the band also performed at the SAP Arena aka “Shark Tank” on the NHL team’s home opener.
About the collaboration, the band shared: “Prepare to get PUMPED. Our new song ‘Between Our Teeth’ is out now, and there’s a bit of a story to it. A few months ago the San Jose Sharks came knocking on our door looking for a brand new banger to pump up the team before their home games this season. So banger we brought! They ensured us that they wanted the essence of the song to feel like the Flats, but hoped it could also tap into the San Jose way, and bring a little extra energy into the arena just before the team barrels through that big shark mouth. A truly wild ask, since we all grew up either playing or watching hockey. Being trusted by the whole organization with this tall task is an honour we’re truly grateful for, and to be able to leave a small stamp on some @nhl activity is beyond comprehension to the four of us.”
