B-Lines - S/T - LP

B-LINES s/t 12” (DY189 split release with Nominal)
B-Lines follow-up their sold out debut 7" with nine more short, sharp odes to awkwardness, alienation, and their hometown of Vancouver. Manic vocals atop perfectly simple and tuneful songs played with a frenzy that lands them in the sweet spot between hardcore and pop-punk. In keeping with their belief that LPs are for prog rock, it's all said and done before you'll have time to conceptualize your next snack.
Initial pressing of 500 copies.
Includes 8.5"x5" zine of lyrics and art, plus digital download. Artwork by Melanie Coles.
