The Skinny: The straw that broke the camel’s back, the final piece to The Prisoner’s Cinema anticipation puzzle, “The Showdown in the Courtroom,” is the last single to drop before Flannel Mouth unleashes their debut full-length to the world!

In this fast-paced track, reminiscent of producer Michael Abiuso’s former band, The Venetia Fair, the four-piece from Peoria, Illinois channeled their inner action-movie score to tell the chapter of The Prisoner’s Cinema in which The Prisoner seizes his opportunity to silence the maniacal, pompous Mr. Black once and for all. “The Showdown in the Courtroom” musically weaves from quick-thinking intimidation, as told in the opening lyrics, “Mr. Black, you’re praying for rain, but the storm is coming too fast,” to Mr. Black’s snarky rebuttal, “You think the love you had was real?” to The Prisoner’s exciting and powerful narration of his murderous actions, “The guards start, but I move too quick, and as your brain shuts down, your body throws a fit.” In just under three minutes, yet another victim falls prey to The Prisoner in this bloody epic.
