“The Leylines never fail to impress and once again their driving take on bawdy folk rock left the audience baying for more, having paid witness to an invigorating set by a band built for the biggest of festival stages.” WILL MUNN, Independent Review
British folk-punk for a summer's afternoon, a sound forged in festivals and bonfires, with fiddle-driven rabble rousers and songs that stir the soul.
The Leylines was started by a group of West Country musicians driving home from a session at the legendary Sawmills Studios. Levelling The Land by The Levellers was on the car stereo. Something about the sound of the record, the rolling Cornwall landscapes and the smell of summer connected in writer and vocalist Steve's head. Steve, a product of council estates and stints in the Army, put his observations on the state of the nation into music and started writing.
Adding the different musical backgrounds of bandmates Matt (guitar), Pete (bass), Dave (drums) and Hannah (violin), The Leylines have created a style that combines the acerbic social commentary of the Mod and Punk eras, and a folk-rock vibe that will send you right back to those long, hazy festival days.
The band saying is: “If you wouldn’t go out and have drink with someone, don’t work with them.” With a fiercely loyal and ever-growing fan base, The Leylines are guaranteed to have their audiences up on their feet – and they'll be having as much fun as their audience while they're doing it!
Having released their debut album last July, the band has had some fantastic reviews and announced their first national tour in 2017.
The Leylines come to The Continental on Saturday 22nd April 2017.

"I headed to a packed out Floating Globe stage for one of the highlights of the entire weekend in the shape of The Leylines, a violin/guitar wielding folk rock act that deliver hooks and contagious melodies aplenty during a thrilling set that even had the uninitiated singing along to the likes of Runaway and Run For Cover"
SLAP MAGAZINE REVIEW OF LAKEFEST
“10 years of Watchet Festival...and for me, the biggest highlight has been watching The Leylines headline The Udder Stage...simply awesome ” JOS OLIVER HOOPER
“In The Leylines substantial, beautifully written and overwhelmingly superb debut album, Along The Old Straight Track, the sense of accomplishment is so touching, so innate and fearless that it cannot be perfectly described.” Ian Hall, Liverpool Sound & Vision
“...this is a brilliant debut from a very tight band with all the right song-writing credentials to make them a huge hit on the festival circuit and beyond...I did get to see them play live...and I have to say I was not disappointed along with the big crowd that turned out to see them and danced and sang along during the whole set. Without a doubt The Leylines are worth checking out, you will not be disappointed!” MARK GOODMAN, MAGPIE MUSIC
