Bloodline Ltd | This Is Our Way: CD And Tour Dates

Friday, April 25th, 2008

Oh my sack. It’s just around the corner, and we’re ready for blood. Bloodline Ltd, South Africa’s undisputed premier Hardcore (HC) outfit, begin steamrolling their way across our great nation this weekend, laying waste to stages, security fencing and anyone stupid enough to stand in their way. They also release the hardest album you’re ever likely to hear and it will leave you bruised and battered. Be sure to check out the tour dates and catch them where you can.

Bloodline Ltd tour
Bloodline Ltd: Get ready to pass out with anger.

Bloodline Ltd hit the hardcore punk/metal scene with a vengeance in 2006 and quickly caught everyone’s attention through support slots for USA’s Most Precious Blood and Germany’s Spermbirds among others. Delivering a live show that can only be described as a “full frontal assault” they spent most of 2006 filling venues across South Africa, including a riotous appearances at Woodstock 8 (and again at Woodstock 9) that required extra security to control the audience. In 2007 the band maintained their momentum as one of the top “alternative” live acts in South Africa with appearances at X-Fest, Fracture Fest, Oppikoppi and Woodstock 9.

They have recently completed recording of their ferocious debut full length album “This Is Our Way” due for South African release in April 2008. Bloodline Ltd have also not escaped the attention of the international scene where the band are being hailed as one of the top new HC acts and the album is set for release in Europe in July 2008 with a Headline tour of Germany, Austria, Italy and more supported by Italian Hardcore outfit The Vendetta in October of this year. A USA release and tour is also on the table and in consideration for 2009.
