The Lines

The Lines are a four-piece indie rock band from Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England who were signed to Amboy Road Records, although previously had released their debut single on Weekender records in February 2008.
The band members are Dean Bate (Lead Guitar), Dave O'Connor (Drums and Samples), Alex Ohm (Vocals and Guitar) and Danny Pease (Bass Guitar).
The Lines formed in 2006 with lifetime school friends Dean Bate and Alex Ohm. Following a few early line up changes, drummer Ryan Edwards joined in January 2007. The Lines released their debut single 'Domino Effect' on Weekender Records on February 25, 2008, and achieved number ten in the UK Charts. Edwards left the group in late 2008 as he felt he needed a career change from music, Chris Titley also left the band due to 'personal reasons', and was quickly replaced by Danny Pease.
The Lines achieved various support slots between 2006-2008 which have included The Killers, Editors, The Maccabees, The Twang, The Charlatans, Babyshambles, Jack PeƱate, Supergrass, Ian Brown and Good Shoes. They also headlined at Birmingham ArtsFest and the Bang Music Festival at Donington Park, in front of 80,000 people.

In April 2010 the latest line up of the band signed to Independent Record Label; Amboy Road Records Ltd for the release of their debut album, released on October 11, 2010, this was supported by a 16 date UK tour including the sold out album launch held at Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall on October 8, 2010. It was during this tour that the Lines became signed to X-ray Touring, home of artists such as Green Day, Blur and Take That shortly after finishing this tour, they played at CMJ Music Marathon festival in New York, where they joined the roster of High Road Touring, home to many artisits including Kaiser Chiefs, The Macabees and Paul Weller. After a short break over the Christmas period, the Lines embarked on a much larger UK tour, including legendary venues such as Glasgow's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, The Sugar Mill in Stoke and the HMV Institute in Birmingham, leading up to another North American invasion in the form of Canadian Music Week, followed closely by the extremely prestigious SXSW music festival in Austin Texas, playing a number of gigs including the closing festival "The Big One".
A summer of Urban festivals, including The Camden Crawl, Live In Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and Dot to Dot, support slots with Ash and Ocean Colour Scene and more recently dates with Peter Doherty's on his solo tour.
On Saturday 25th May 2013, The Lines announced they had split up on their official Facebook and Twitter pages. The Twitter announcement stated "It's been fun but it's time to go. Thank you all for the most brilliant support. Big love to you x"
