Once back in the UK, Straight Lines will support The Automatic at the Relentless Garage, London on 30th March.

‘Persistence In This Game’ is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner, The Xcerts, Reuben…). Here’s what the press had to say:
"Sure to follow in their friends' footsteps, Straight Lines are heading straight up." - 4/5 Big Cheese
“...passion bleeds from the speakers from the word go; from the machine gun riffery of opener Versus The Allegiance, to mature ballad Set Me On Fire. It's accomplished stuff...” – 3/5 Kerrang!
“Runaway Now' and 'Say It For Your Sake' will smash into your memory within seconds, while the aggressive riffs will carry the package into your heart.” - 8/10 Rocksound
