Welsh rockers Straight Lines began the year with the release of their incredible debut album, Persistence In This Game, which came via Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner; The Xcerts).
Tours followed with InMe, The Automatic, The Xcerts, The Get Up Kids and Attack! Attack! along with festival appearances at SxSW, Camden Crawl, Slam Dunk, SWN, Download and Sonishere. Throughout the year Straight Lines released three singles from the LP: 'Runaway Now', 'Loose Change' and 'Say It For Your Sake'.
