Check out our recent interview with Pembrokeshire punks – Broken Lines!
For the unfortunate few who don’t know who you are, would you mind introducing yourselves?
Broken Lines: Broken Lines was formed in 2014. We are a 3-piece band playing unique and original music from Pembrokeshire, West Wales. Our emphasis is to create upbeat and energetic music with punk, rock, psychedelic and just about anything else that influences us! We play for the love and enjoyment of music and aim to portray that in our songs and performances. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow and serene, but always refreshing and uniquely our own. Strong beats and growling bass punctuated with searing guitar and a vocal performance to match! Delivering an experience that is intense, exciting and emotionally charged.
In the effort of getting to know each other better – if you could be a sandwich, what sandwich would you be?
Broken Lines: Carolina Reaper Sandwich!
Tell us about your latest release
Broken Lines: We have just released our debut album on Wolf Entertainment entitled Liberation.
It’s an eclectic mix of different styles, shapes and colours. It has been greeted with critical acclaim and we are very proud of it!
You’ve been touring the world in support of Liberation. How have you found the tour?
Broken Lines: We love it! We are a live band and as a result we believe we deliver an exciting show that leaves our audience buzzing! Every show is different but the core elements of excitement and intensity power through each event.
Have you got any crazy tour stories you can share with the world?
Broken Lines: Contrary to popular belief, not a lot of crazy shit happens during tours. It’s hard work, a lot of travelling and not much sleep!
Here at Upside Down Shark we discuss a wide breadth of pop-culture, including music, movies, TV, video games and the like. So with that in mind, if you could have a track featured in anything, whether it be any of the above on even a wrestling theme, what would it be?
Broken Lines: “Black Space” is perfect for a thriller or horror film. It’s full of atmosphere and foreboding and delivers quite a rollercoaster ride!
Name one thing on your band bucket list…
Broken Lines: A new bucket!
What would be your inspirational quote to share with the world?
Broken Lines: “Just Fucking Do It!”
What does 2020 have in store for you?
Broken Lines: Lots of gigs/festivals, a new single in the spring and a new album by the end of the year!
Name your favourite shark (can be real or fictional).
Broken Lines: Stalin.
