"The new Sunliner record is a thing of beauty - melodic punk rock underpinned by serious songwriting, soaring melodies and poignant lyrics backed up with energy and passion." 



SUNLINER are an up and coming indie-punk-rock four-piece from Leeds who take inspiration from the likes of Hot Water Music, Against Me!, and Bruce Springsteen. The band have previously played shows across the UK and Europe with The Skints, Beans on Toast, Pkew Pkew Pkew, The Get Up Kids and Red City Radio. 

Previous festival appearances include - The FEST (fl), Punk Rock Holiday, Bearded Theory, Boomtown Fair

In 2022 they released their debut, self-titled album 'SUNLINER' on Lockjaw Records. Listen here.

"Lyrically, I approached the album differently to how I've written songs before. Taking influence from Bruce Springsteen and his ability to create a narrative story of an average person - running away to be something, as well his social commentary of class divides and critique of the government is something that resonated with me and could not be more relevant today," says vocalist Jake. 

"And as a big Stephen King fan, his work building towns, real people, and coming of age stories was another thing I wanted to incorporate in the songs; a theme of hope in the face of adversity." He adds. 

The 10 tracks on the album can be seen as one person's journey through life or lots of different people at different stages in their life. From late teen angst, to starting work, through to losing a friend early, and to eventual death. 'Sunliner' was produced by Andy Hawkins at The Nave in Leeds, mastered by Dave Draper, and powered by cups of tea.
