The Skinny: London-based hardcore punks Lay It On The Line are pleased to announce the release of their new EP Vigilance for free download today, Tuesday 22nd October, through Lockjaw and Fire Engine Red Records. You can stream or download the EP in full just above. The quartet play a special release show at The Garage, London this Friday 25th October with support from Elephantis, Darko and Circle Of Rage.

Formed early in 2012 from the ashes of many touring UK bands, members have been drawn from cult underground UK punk bands including Phinius Gage and Hang The Bastard. Vigilance is the band’s new 5 song EP – another concept recording exploring the story of George Hutchison, a friend of Mary Kelly, the last Jack The Ripper victim. Recorded by Neil Kennedy at Ranch Production House (More Than Life, Sharks, Landscapes, Departures, Vales), the EP plays on the band’s Youth Crew influences more than their earlier EPs, expertly blending their signature brand of screamo, melodic hardcore and angular riffs.
