A message from Tamsin

It is with more than a little sadness that I part ways with the wonderful LIINES in order to pursue my own creative project, Vice Vera. It has been such a privilege to share so many adventures with these awesome women who are inspirational in their passion, musicianship and dedication. It has been a kaleidoscope of soundchecks, service stations, stages, hotels, whiskey, motorways, laughter and love. All of this I will miss, but I depart happy in the knowledge that I have gained two friends for life. Thank you to all the fabulous people we have met along the way for your support in buying records, coming to gigs and endless online piss-taking! Most of all though, thank you Leila and Zoe, for welcoming me with open arms and for making the last 2 1/2 years so much fun. Wishing you so much love and luck for the future and the next stage of the LIINES journey – you deserve every success. ❤️


A message from Zoe and Leila

We are so sad to see Tamsin go. It’s always hard to sum up the experience of being in a band but we really have experienced it all with Tamsin over the last 2 1/2 years. Tamsin was one of us and has been LIINES wholeheartedly from day one and always will be. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has given since joining us. We’ve played gigs and festivals all over the UK, and driven thousands of miles together – so many experiences we will never forget. Thank you for everything. We wish you ALL the best with Vice Vera and other projects in future. You are an incredible talent and one of the best ever people. We love you so much.

These upcoming dates supporting Hot Snakes will be Tamsin’s last playing with us. Please come and give her a good send off, email us weareliines@gmail.com for cheap list entry –

•  3 December NOTTINGHAM
•  4 December MANCHESTER
•  12 December LONDON
•  13 December BRISTOL

We are going to take a bit of a break after these gigs – we’ve done over 50 gigs this year so now we need to focus on finishing and recording our second album. We’ve already got festivals and plans for gigs next year, so we will be back!

We have also started the search for a new bassist. If you know of any Manchester-based bassists who might be interested, please contact us on weareliines@gmail.com or on Facebook / Twitter.

Big love, and thank you for everything. 

Zoe & Leila xxx
