The Leylines are a west-country based group with a genre-defying, violin & guitar-driven sound, mixing Folk & Indie and coming up with what can only be described as huge festival anthems!
Found in 2013 by a group of musicians combining their individual musical style into something that isn't quite folk, sort of Punk but 100% heart-pounding revelry. This unique sound (combined with lyrics ranging from social issues, life on the road and partying with friends) launched the band into the heart of the UK music community.
The band released their debut album, 'Along The Old Straight Track' in June 2016, produced by Sean Lakeman and mixed by Al Scott. With this team on board, inevitably the record has drawn strong comparison to The Levellers, Mad Dog Mcrea and Ferocious Dog, whilst remaining an album by a band who has forged their own sound and identity.
The following years The Leylines went on their first of many national tours and were booked for Glastonbury Festival 2017, where they performed six sets in as many days. They also played stages at Beautiful Days, Goldcoast Oceanfest, Big Festival and Something To Smile About Festival as well as many other festivals across the UK.
The band then released their second studio album Recover Reveal, in March 2019, starting work on it almost immediately after the release of 'Along The Old Straight Track', their second record was nearly three years of honing and crafting, with a number of tracks crowd tested at numerous venues and festivals across the UK.
The result is a collection of sincere, straight from the heart performances, constructed with care and played with passion.
The superb new single 'Breakout' is taken from 'Recover Reveal' and is an anthem in the making, it's also the name of their upcoming 2022 tour, please see the dates below.
