2012 was quite a year for STRAIGHT LINES; they released their brilliant second album ‘Freaks Like Us’ (which spawned three singles), embarked on their first European tour with label mates Sonic Boom Six, secured a load of press, radio and television, toured with The Blackout, Canterbury, Presidents of the USA and just finished their own mammoth headline tour!
The band can now reveal their first plans for 2013. The year will kick off with the band releasing their amazing new EP ‘Escapology’. The title track of the EP sees the band expand their musical horizons with this hugely anthemic track. The EP also featured a brilliant take on ‘Ring The Bells’ and two additional tracks.
2. Empty Chest
