by Bob Coyne Rating: Release Date:

After recently performing at Brixton Academy, Shepherds Bush Empire, The 100 Club and some of the UK's most respected venues, The Lines now prepare for their biggest headline show to date at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Saturday December 15 2012.

With a capacity in excess of 3,000 and a history that has seen every band of note through the years grace its stage; this hometown show is a great milestone in the rising career of the band. The band say: "We're pleased to announce that we'll be headlining Wolverhamptons Civic Hall. It's our biggest headline gig to date and a testament to hard work in a climate that seems to be dominated by overnight success and throw away pop. We're proud of where we're from and it's a privilege to play such an iconic venue. It's going to be one hell of a party."

The Lines are quickly becoming known for their live performances, recent shows have seen them share stages with The Bots, Ocean Colour Scene, The Maccabees, Babyshambles, Supergrass, Ash and others. The band have also performed at some of the most respected festivals across the world including SXSW, The Canadian Music Festival, CMJ New York, Frequency Festival , Live at Leeds, Camden Crawl , Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape and more.

Taking influences from the likes of The Rapture, 2 Many DJs and Radiohead, the sound The Lines create is one ahead of their time, like a band who have been perfecting their craft for years, but with their unique stamp left over each catchy chorus.

Accolades this year have been XFM playlist additions, Q and Kerrang! Radio live sessions and receiving support from The Fly, Artrocker, TalkSport, Hit The Floor Mag and others. With such an impressive introduction into the music world, The Lines have no intention of slowing things down, and plan to make 2013 the one which cements their name firmly in the music scene for good. This show is just another step in that direction.
