Lines In The Sky
With a national press campaign underway and new album Parallel Travel due to release in Spring 2016, Lines In the Sky will ignite an explosive start to the new year, a perfect description of this band’s unique modern progressive alternative rock and the reaction its live show receives. Collaborating a second time with Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, Blue October, David Bowie, U2), Parallel Travel is showing all early signs of becoming a game-changer for this young rock trio, and the upcoming professional press push in Spring 2016 is augmenting the hard work the band has accomplished in getting the word out during its successful local, regional, and national touring throughout 2013-2015. Hard on the heels of Hilasterion, the band’s 2014 collaboration with Tim Palmer, the band’s reception in live performance is generating new interest in Hilasterion and setting the stage perfectly for Parallel Travel. LITS’s 2014-2015 tours have included many small-to-medium sized regional festivals as well as a requested return to 10-day MusikFest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Lines In the Sky is waking its audiences back up to rock music, and they are compared to vintage groundbreaking rock bands such as Rush, The Police, and Muse, as well as newer out-of-the-ordinary box bands Coheed and Cambria, and Circa Survive. Seasoned from its regional touring and the local competitive mass of bands in Nashville, Lines In the Sky showcases itself uniquely with performance and songwriting ability far beyond their years. Frontman Jesse Brock brings it vocally, a singer’s singer, while simultaneously rocks acrobatic melody lines and riffs as the lead guitarist. Little brother Bowman is equally adept with polyrhythmic dynamics as with Neil Peart solid rock chops, and is admired by professional drummers and musicians in the Nashville scene, including Roy “Futureman” Wooten. New bassist Max Ingersoll brings fresh energy and exquisite bass finesse to the band, making the trio artistically complete. These young guys bring an exciting rock show that exudes energy in live performance without sacrificing excellent musicianship, playing with the skill of the underground wave of progressive jam band movement, but with a more commercial element of appeal, representative of Jesse’s songwriting and vocal prowess. Already with independent and college radio airplay through the upper South and Northeast with practically zero press, Lines In the Sky is well on its way to being discovered by a mass audience in 2016.
