Manchester post-punks LIINES have built a reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Manchester in recent years. Since releasing debut album Stop-Start, they’ve played sold out gigs, toured with the likes of Sleaford Mods, Ash, Hot Snakes and bis and played a string of festival dates, including Glastonbury, Bluedot and Tim Peaks Diner at Kendal Calling and Cotton Clouds Festivals. Their sound is an infectious, urgent and at times furious blend of Riot Grrrl, post-punk and alt-rock sounds which take in elements of their collective influences.
