Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, Restorations, Look Mexico) is thrilled to welcome Long Island, NY’s State Lines to its family. The label will release the band’s upcoming Self-Titled EP on 7″ vinyl in April with pre-orders starting in March. This will be the follow up to State Lines’ debut full-length, Hoffman Manor, which can still be downloaded for free here.
State Lines make quite the first impression as the first chords ring out on their sophomore release. Recorded this Winter with Sainthood Reps’ Bradley Cordaro, these four songs overflow with punk energy while playfully pulling at those pop heartstrings we all possess. But please, don’t throw State Lines up on the shelf with all the other tepid pop/punk out there these days. While State Lines have plenty of youthful spirit they bite deep with lyrical depth. Recalling the early days of Saves The Day and Brand New along with modern bands like Tigers Jaw and Joyce Manor, State Lines will most assuredly establish their own name very quickly.
Stay tuned for final artwork/tracklisting as well as upcoming song premieres.
