'If there is anyone else capable of the integrity of this musical vision at the moment I would love to hear them.' -

'One of the best live bands I've seen this year.' - DJ Jim Gellatly XFM Scotland 2011

'A band that have not yet made a debut album have no right to be making songs that sound so accomplished and are so awash with ideas and intricate details.' -

'This is a band who cannot be missed. Extremely unique and had the whole of Dry Bar [Manchester] in awe. Go check them out!' - ImagineLive TV


In 2009, the band pre-released track “Hope/Grace” on the psychedelic compilation album “Strung Out Volume One” through The Third Wave Collective; which showcases ‘the cream of the guitar-based psychedelia-influenced crop’ (Drowned in Sound). Other artists on this compilation included The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dead Meadow and Spectrum.

Delta Mainline entered a new phase in November 2010 with the release of their eagerly awaited EP ‘In a World Full of Madness, the Simple Joy of Melody Can Pull You Through’ to a capacity crowd at Edinburgh's Bongo Club. Produced by Rehab Sound Recordings, the record successfully captures the band’s dynamic live sound as the songs cascade from sweet and simple melodies into intense sonic experimentation.

Delta Mainline take to Chem19 Studios near Glasgow to record their debut album. These sessions will continue into early 2012 before the album's release through English label Imagine Records.
