The Headlines is a punk rock band from Malmö, Sweden. They were formed in 2005. Their music is heavily influenced by such bands as The Clash, Rancid and Ramones. Stry Terrarie (Ebba Grön) has produceded all their recordings. Since 2007 they have released 2 albums and one EP (limited vinyl). The band started working on their third full-length album in the summer of 2011. The self-titled album was recorded in Dead Rat Studios in Aarhus, Denmark and released on Bad Dog Records November 23, 2012.

The band has toured with bands such as Levellers (Great Britain) and Broilers (Germany). Over the past years they have played over 300 shows all over Europe. The band has a loyal fan base in Germany, and frequently leave their country to play for more welcoming crowds abroad. During an interview about the release of Plug n Play bass player Kerry Bomb was quoted saying "There are a lot of people that hates us here in Malmö, it's all about image and attitude. We don't have enough tattoos and too much pink. In Germany nobody complains about that and the album has received great reviews"[1] (article in Swedish).

On February 20, 2015 the band released Vendetta on MetalSpiesser Records, following two single releases the year before.
