Still working on that hot first release.



Formed in the spring of 2012, in Leeds (UK), forming members Carly Humphries, Matthew Bradley, Ralph Sayers and Luke Barnfather spent early months writing and recording with producers James Kenosha (Dry the River / Pulled Apart By Horses), Lee Smith and Jamie Lockheart (The Cribs / Forward Russia).

Battle Lines came to national attention with their self-released limited edition Hearts 7, in March 2013, helping introduce them to fans across the UK.

The band followed this up with debut performances at Reading and Leeds Festivals, Beacons Festival and sold out shows across the UK.

Battle Lines returned to the studio to record their follow-up track "Colonies" and have partnered with No Sleep Records for its U.S. debut, due out 15 April 2014. The blistered lullaby is replete with wistful paradoxes of emotional and sexual indifference; echoing distaste with the hypnotizing line, "You mean nothing to me. The Limited 7" features the title track as well as a new song entitled "Push."

In March 2014 the band became SESAC affiliates.

In March 2014 with the support of UK Trade and Investment the band made their first US appearances at SXSW, playing a capacity show at the British Music Embassy amongst other shows through the week. 

To support the release of "Colonies" the band will embark on a UK tour with Seahaven and Nai Harvest followed by appearances at Hit The Deck Festival, Liverpool Sound City and Tramlines.
