Since then they have shared stages with Kamikaze Test Pilots, Virus, Vice Squad, The Black Bullets, Rage DC, Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons, Dragster, The Xtraverts, The Screaming Dead and many others.

"Jaw-droppingly good... more hooks than a deep sea fishing line" - Scene Sussex
We are a new three piece band from Reading, UK, playing original alternate rock music. Ep released on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Google Play, Amazon, Nokia and many more!!
Fault Line are a four piece alternative band from Oxfordshire, taking inspiration and musical influences from bands such as Thrice, Deftones, System of a down and Arcane roots.
The band started in 2009 following many years of gigging with a progressive metal band - Andensum. In the pursuit of a new direction, the band began writing more melodic music music and quickly took to the stage and fortunately the new sound was met with praise from fans and fellow musicians. In 2010 the band won the Jambox battle of the bands and in 2011 we were awarded best live act by the rock society at Cheltenham University.
The band took a break following a line up change and then spent a year developing our sound with a new recruit and singer, Jack little, and recording a new 6 track EP "Hope Remains" which we released August 2015.
The band is currently working hard to refine our live shows and to build a strong fan base by show casing our material on the local gig scene.
