BLOODLINES are a high intensity, high energy rock band from Scotland. They combine big riffs, intricate melodies and solid rhythm into a truly original sound. Growing up around the Highlands, playing pubs in formative years, live performance became a passion for them, and is still the thing they do best.
Bloodlines promise to make gigs not just a performance, but a show. Often compared to bands such as Biffy Clyro, Foals, Reuben and Pulled Apart by Horses, Bloodlines have gained huge momentum in 2016.
This year they headlined the world famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow and closing stages at festivals including T in the Park and Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival. At T in the Park they were tipped as “Top 5 to-see” by many press outlets namely including The Scottish Alternative Music Awards and in the summer of 2016 have featured in newspapers such as Scotland on Sunday, The Sun, Lochaber News, Highland News, The Skinny and The Inverness Courier.
