The Delines debut album 'Colfax' surprised fans and critics alike making many 'records of the year' lists after its release. Uncut gave it 9/10 stars and praised its songs claiming them to be “the richest collection of songs (Willy) Vlautin has written.” Sadly, lead singer Amy Boone was hit by a car, put into the hospital and recovery for many months. This put the band on hold for over three years but, thankfully, Amy is finally on the mend. The Delines are back with their follow up record featuring another set of Vlautin songs. It will be released in January 2019 ahead of a UK tour.
