REDLINE - British Hard Rock at its best. If you like your Rock nitro-injected and full throttle then this is for you.
Hailing from Birmingham in the UK, Redline are instilled with traditional hard rock values and a background of motorcycle culture which gives their music its distinctive character... raw, direct, riff-laden songs delivering a powerful mix of melody & aggression. Redline’s ‘King of the Mountain,’ released when the band formed in 2006, has already been adopted as the unofficial anthem for The Isle of Man TT Road Races achieving ‘A’ list radio plays and a high profile on the rock club circuit. The limited edition EP sold well via HMV and Redline’s own website.
This year ‘No Limits’ taken from Redline’s forthcoming debut album ‘Ignition’, has been rewarded with an enthusiastic response from rock & bike fans alike, gaining wide airplay at the 60,000 strong TT Centenary celebrations.
Redline have appeared at a number of festivals this year including The UK National Ink & Iron Custom Show, MotorCycle News/Kerrang Live Festival and The Hard Rock Hell Winter Ball. Redline are booking more dates to promote ‘Ignition’ and are actively seeking additional distribution/licensing opportunities in order to reach a wide a market as possible.
