Scottish Metal combo Lifelines release debut EP in November

Lifelines-thumb

Glaswegian metal outfit ‘Lifelines’ are rapidly etching a prominent name for themselves. Dishing up ear shattering shows that clearly mark their intention and convey their manifesto, the rising quintet are poised to hurl themselves into the national arena, ready to annihilate every sweat-pit venue along the way.

Spawned in the back streets of Glasgow, Scotland, Lifelines were formed in 2011 when old band mates Paul Bone (Vocals) and Sean Young (Guitar) recruited Jonny Macintyre (Drums). The trio soon started to write and rewrite as they began to flesh out the bones for their very first record and set list. However, the early days of Lifelines posed its challenges; the band went through six guitarists in their first year, could only afford to rehearse in Jonny’s front room, had no microphones for vocals and had only a make shift drum kit without any cymbals! But through sheer dedication and gutsy drive, the three piece pressed on, and by happenstance, they stumbled into Adam Cosgrove (Guitar) while frequenting a bar in the city; the four instantly clicked and Cosgrove joined the ranks. It wasn’t too long then before they drafted in Murray Paton (Bass) to finally complete the unit.

By the end of 2012, the aspiring five piece began to truly solidify, picking up solid underground acclaim, and scoring a feature in Front Magazine’s New & Unsigned section. The band continued their climb by hitting the road, playing throughout Scotland and supporting good friends ‘Bleed From Within’ and ‘Palm Reader’ along the way. Lifeline’s shows are now fast becoming notorious for their intensity and full-hearted delivery. The Metal crew will tour again this Autumn in support of their debut record ‘In Presents Wake’.

The band’s debut EP ‘In Presents Wake’ is stuffed to the gills with blistering riffs and pounding beats. Lifelines have pulled down their live energy to tape and the EP perfectly captures the band as they are best heard: live and in your face. From the unbridled ballsy vigor of ‘Subcitizen’ through to the vicious drive of ‘The Protagonist’ and the ferociously rifftastic ‘Silver Screen Synthetic’, ‘In Presents Wake’ is a record that showcases Lifelines as a sure-to-be prominent force in the UK metal scene.
