After completing their UK tour and going down a storm across the pond, the Lines are back, and are releasing a new single, Glorious Aftermath from their self titled debut album.
With a hectic live schedule ahead, including the HMV Next Big Thing festival and supporting britpop legends Ocean Colour Scene on their Moseley Shoals tour, the band are set to head out to North America for Canadian Music Week, SXSW and some additional New York dates, before their own headline UK tour in May. Wolverhamptonâ€™s finest are set for a busy 2011.
Rock is deadâ€¦? Brit rock has received a few thousand volts, a shot of adrenaline, and is coming back better than ever, alongside this realisation, the rest of the UK is starting to notice what the city of Wolverhampton has known for a while, the brightest young stars riding this wave are the Lines.
The band comes with the Robert Plan seal of approval as the Led Zeppelin legend states â€œThere are not many good bands coming out of Wolverhampton, just one great band called the Linesâ€.
Glorious Aftermath is another anthemic offering from the west midlands 4 piece, combining intricate melodies with velcro hooks, soaring riffs and infectious style, alongside their epic live shows, they are fast becoming known for.
On returning from the US, the Lines are embarking on a May headline tour of prestigious venues up and down the country. As the word is spreading outside the core â€œLines armyâ€ fanbase the dates are selling fast.
