Mainliners are back. After their praised record release, Bring On The Sweetlife, on Get Hip Recordings (US) with following US- and European tours they’re now back and ready to strike with a second smashing album. Mainliners combine raw rock with a cocky attitude, adding a touch Swedish pop. Their front man Robert Billing has a well respected reputation for his powerful and charismatic voice. Robert is backed by furious guitars, steady beats, popish quires and partly even by harmonium bows.
The Mainliner’s self-titled album contains ten varying but inter-twining songs. Ranging from Is This Satisfying with feedback, distorted guitar riffs and catchy pop melodies, to Round Five with driving bass and distinctive guitar chords to Saint’s March In Sunrise with it’s warmth and soulfulness. Plus there’s much, much more… The Mainliners won’t let you down!
It all started a few years ago in some dirty little industrial town somewhere in the middle of Sweden. Four guys with attitude got fed up with the lack of something to do. These youngsters' frustration led to the creation of a new musical group, a group that soon was to be named The Mainliners. With the members' similar sources of inspiration it just couldn't be anything else but some kind of garage rock & roll music screaming out of those amps after a few rehearsals.
Today Mainliners are a sextet. They’ve toured the States and Europe. They’ve released records on Crusher Records, Get Hip Recordings and Human Bretzel. Their music has grown, grown from the more primitive garage music to a more modern and refined pop and rock music. They’ve still got the attitude, they’ve got the confidence and they’re back with a new smashing album. Mainliners are back, and they’re here to stay!
Dead Man's Hall and Daughter of Dimes, a 7" single, was released on Crusher Records in August 2004.
It was The Mainliners' first release on vinyl and also the first release for Crusher Records. Today their second album is here, set to be released April 25, 2007.
