NEWS: West Country band The Leylines launch second tour of 2018

Defining their own genre as “not quite folk”, West Country band The Leylines, return to the southwest as part of their Winter 2018 tour. Founded in Weston-Super-Mare, the group has made something of a name for themselves on the festival scene.

Coming to the Palladium Club in Bideford on the 30th November before hitting Exeter’s Voodoo Lounge on the 1st December, the band aims to give their audiences the best experience possible, telling stories that are both relatable and memorable.

Their debut album, Along The Old Straight Track, was released in June 2016 and is a nod to the existence of alleged ley lines in Britain. Produced by Sean Lakeman and mixed by Al Scott, it has drawn a strong comparison to the likes of The Levellers, Mad Dog Mcrea, and Ferocious Dog, albeit with their individual sound and identity. Their second album, Recover Reveal, this time with Al Scott on production duties, is currently available for preorder on the website.

With a fiercely loyal and ever-growing fan base, The Leylines guarantee to have their audiences up on their feet – and have as much fun as their audience while they’re at it.

Expect high energy and original music sitting somewhere between folk, rock, and punk. And in the words of violinist Hannah Johns, if they haven’t broken strings or bow hairs, or snapped drumsticks during a performance, something has gone wrong!

17 Nov – The Saracen’s Plate, Penryn

23 Nov – Heartbreakers, Southampton

24 Nov – Wroot Rocks, Doncaster

30 Nov – Palladium Club, Bideford

1st Dec – Voodoo Lounge Exeter
