Delta Mainline are a seven-piece alternative band based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

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 ‘In a World Full of Madness, the Simple Joy of Melody Can Pull You Through’ EP 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.

This distinctive sound resulted in a number of 5-star reviews and radio play both in the UK (including BBC Radio One) and overseas; notably in Australia, the U.S.A. and across Europe. The band were also selected to feature on DJ Gill Mills’ Best of MySpace show, and fulfilled a hand-picked selection of gigs in 2011 - including a main stage performance at Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival and two headline slots at Edinburgh club night 'Limbo' at The Voodoo Rooms.

Last year also saw Delta Mainline take to Chem19 Studios near Glasgow to record their debut album. These sessions will continue into April 2012 before the album's release later this year. The band were also selected in early 2012 to feature on 'US[THEM]' - a release by Canadian label Halcyon Records celebrating the work of Pink Floyd.

Delta Mainline are now in the final stages of mixing their debut album at Chem19 near Glasgow. This will be released through imagine records Autumn 2012

'Delta Mainline do not make music - they create spiritually staggering sound.’ - The Skinny

'Psychedelic rockers rise above their peers, quality songs that live up to the hype.' - The Scotsman

'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

'Long winding sonic experiments born from effects driven guitars, Verve like vocals, synths, keyboards and a wonderful selection of other bits and bobs, blend into each other to make spacious, epic, soulful, meaningful music. Taking the best from bands like Spiritualized and dare I say it? Doing a better job.' - Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival

'Epic rockscapes that have mainlined on Morricone soundtracks, Spacemen 3 singles and Sparklehorse LPs. A bliss-inducing band if ever you heard one. Bring them into your world and onto your stereo.' - Shindig! Magazine

'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!' - Imagine Records

'McLachlan has gone power-crazy in command over his sonisphere.' -
