Album Review: Lay It on the Line/Arizona - Split EP
London based melodic-hardcore group Lay It On The Line have teamed up with Belgian rock boys Arizona to bring out this ‘Split EP’ - two songs from each group, taking on passionate emotive hardcore to an acoustic number.
Starting with Arizona, their two tracks is melodic rock with undertones of hardcore and metal, they also provide the acoustic track giving the EP a chilled out closing.
‘I Knew A Girl At School Called Pandora, Never Got To See Her Box Though’ is a mouthful of a title to say the least, combining heavy guitar lines and clean vocals it is a pretty standard rock tune, towards the ending however you see it pick up with a heavier feel, the guitars are still ferocious (a bit cliché in terms of riffs) and the vocals step up to the heavier instrumentation.
this is nice - review likening us to polar and dead swans. we approve of such comparisons

a bit of an update…
hello. ladies and gentlemen. lay it on the line’s tallest member here. few things have happened the last few days so thought i’d write about it…
1. we are doing a load of gigs in belgium/benelux in july with arizona to back out split EP we just did together. they’ve already been booked but we aren’t trusted yet to know where they all are. suffice to say we’re supporting arizona for a load of shows and they are going to be great. when i know details, i’ll put them up.
2. we booked a london show today….should have the flyer up tomorrow - it’s well soon (may 19th)
3. i’m waiting anxiously for the test presses of the vinyl of ‘crowhurst’ to arrive at my apartment. should be any day…
so yeah, all good things. if you haven’t got ‘crowhurst’ or the split with arizona yet as digital releases, they are free from http://layitontheline.bandcamp.com - the link to buy the vinyl is on there too.
