New single Keep on Going and September tour dates
LIINES follow on from a standout couple of years with the release of their new single Keep On Going, out now (3 September 2021) ahead of a run of headline gigs and festivals throughout September.
Keep On Going is a perfect set starter, staying true to their infectious, it’s a no-nonsense release that, whilst carrying a sense of urgency, is abundant in positivity, spreading a message we all need to hear.
- Premiered on Radio X – an X-Posure Hot One on John Kennedy’s show
- Radio play from BBC Introducing Manchester and Amazing Radio
- Video premiere on CLOUT – “There’s no stopping post-punk trio LIINES in their elevating new release”
- Even the Stars – “No frills or fuss or surprises, just straight-forward brilliant rock music and the world needs more of that right now”
- Loud Women – “Hooks you can hang your hat on while you go for an urgent, thumpingly positive drive”
- Dead Good Music – “An electrifying two-minute post-punk ride…It’s powerful and honest, both musically and lyrically.”
- RGM – “This is an anthem fit for sweaty clubs or arenas, with Zoe McVeigh’s rousing vocals perfectly suited to crowd involvement.”
It was recorded by Zoe McVeigh (vocals, guitar, bass) and Leila O’Sullivan (drums), working with long-time collaborator Paul Tipler (Stereolab, Elastica, Idlewild, Placebo) who produced and mastered the track.
When talking about the single, singer and guitarist Zoe McVeigh added:
“Keep On Going is a call to arms. The song is almost like a mantra – a chant. A reminder to put one foot in front of the other because that’s all you really can do. It’s a two minute blast of energy that signifies the need to just ‘keep on going, keep with me.”
The band’s drummer Leila O’Sullivan added:
“We’re still in the middle of recording our album, which will be out in 2022. But we couldn’t wait to put more music out and, whilst being short and sweet, Keep on Going really feels like the right message as we all come out from an awful 18 months and looking ahead to better times.”
