London based hard core ‘punks’ LAY IT ON THE LINE are pleased to reveal their new video for ‘Petticoat Lane’ after premiering it with AbsolutePunk yesterday. The video is for the latest track to be taken from their recent ‘Vigilance’ EP available now through Lockjaw and Fire Engine Red Records.
Watch ‘Petticoat Lane’ here:
The band will be hitting the road throughout spring 2014 on sporadic UK dates as well as a short run of shows in Europe, where their staunch DIY fan base is growing rapidly – see below for a full list of dates.
Formed early in 2012 from the ashes of many touring UK bands, members have been in cult underground UK punk bands including Phinius Gage and Hang The Bastard.
Although the band are still in their infancy, they’ve already racked up a demo which was played on Radio 1 by Mike Davies before the band even played a show, 2 EPs and a split with up and coming Belgian band Arizona. With notable support slots alongside hard core heavyweights including Landscapes, Death By Stereo and Ignite, these guys are already turning all the right heads.
‘Vigilance’ is the band’s new 5 song EP – another concept recording exploring the story of George Hutchison, a friend of Mary Kelly, the last Jack The Ripper victim. Recorded by Neil Kennedy at Ranch Production House (More Than Life, Sharks, Landscapes, Departures, Vales), the EP plays on the band’s Youth Crew influences more than their earlier EPs, expertly blending their signature brand of screamo, melodic hard core and angular riffs.
UK and EU tour dates:
Feb 1st – Salisbury, Malmesbury Arms
Feb 7th – London, Unicorn (Camden) w/ Almeida
April 10th – Saarland, DE – Venue TBA
April 11th – Castricum, NL – De Bakkerij
