Glasgow heavy rock band Anchor Lane have become a regular fixture on the Scottish music scene. Taking influence from rock greats such as Queen, Black Stone Cherry, Alter Bridge, Rival Sons and Foo Fighters, their innovative blend of gritty modern rock has had them gaining fans and winning over critics with their energetic live shows.
The four-piece’s stunning debut EP ‘New Beginning’ highlights the band as skilled songwriters with a talent for writing powerful riffs. The EP’s standout track ‘Finished For Twelve’ quickly became a fan favourite and was chosen as the band’s first single release.
Anchor Lane have rapidly grown in stature and reputation, steadily building momentum and picking up rave reviews with their own headline shows and key guest slots. They were included in Scottish Sun columnist Jim Gellatly’s ‘Ones To Watch’ and were the featured band in national newspaper Scotland On Sunday’s ‘Under The Radar’ column as well as performing on STV2’s ‘Live At Five’.
2018 has been an extremely exciting year for Anchor Lane with their debut album in the works and a host of prominent live shows throughout the country. The band recently played to packed audiences at legendary festivals Download, Stone Free and Isle of Wight and at the end of June appeared as special guests for rock phenomenon ‘Tremonti’ at Glasgow’s O2 Academy. Anchor Lane are looking forward to playing at Belladrum, Hard Rock Hell and Winterstorm as well as writing towards their debut album in the coming months.
