The Hotlines are a British pop punk band who formed in the United Kingdom [1][2] in 2007. They released a split 7" record with American pop punk band The Queers in 2008, followed by a self-titled debut album in 2009. Both releases were on Devil's Jukebox records. Their follow up record, 'The Return Of... The Hotlines' was released on 10" vinyl on Monster Zero Records in 2011. During this time they have toured all over Europe. Their sound has often been compared to early Green Day.[3] with nods to The Beach Boys[4] and the Ramones.[5]
