LIINES release much-anticipated debut album, Stop-Start, on 4 May 2018 through Reckless Yes.

LIINES are Zoe McVeigh (vocals/guitar), Tamsin Middleton (bass) & Leila O’Sullivan (drums) – a are a prominent part of the post-punk/new-wave scene, with comparisons ranging from Savages to PINS to Desperate Journalist.

LIINES have released a string of hotly received singles – Never There (2016), double-A single Disappear/Be Here and Blackout (both 2017), Shallow (2018) and most recently Find Something (2018).

LIINES have garnered support from the likes of Gigslutz, Louder Than War, Collapse Board, and The Quietus, with spins on Radio X (John Kennedy), BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music (Tom Robinson) and Amazing Radio,

Over the last 18-month LIINES have played a string of festivals including Head for the Hills, Dot to Dot, Camden Rocks, Off The Record, Loud Women, #Blogtober, When in Manchester.
