Formed in 2003 and hailing from the thriving hardcore/metal scene that is Richmond, Virginia, SKYLINES have been doing their very best to provide their own unique and heartfelt form of metallic hardcore to the underground music scene. With a wide range of influences, from within hardcore as well as beyond, SKYLINES continually strive to write and release music that represents each individual member, expresses a unique interpretation of the events around them, and appeals to enthusiasts of heavy music.

The band’s debut release, a split on Blood & Ink Records with California’s STARS ARE FALLING, received much critical acclaim and helped SKYLINES build a fanbase worldwide. Subsequently, SKYLINES have toured regularly throughout the U.S., including an appearance at the Cornerstone Festival 2005 in Illinois and most recently a coast-to-coast tour alongside labelmates TEN 33 during Winter 2005.

On their potent first full length, Identity, SKYLINES demonstrate just how much growth they’ve experienced both musically and personally since their earlier recordings. Recorded at Planet Red Studios (SCARLET, WINTER SOLSTICE, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), Identity packs a harsh musical punch and lyrical potency few albums in recent years could match. Without a doubt, SKYLINES have created something special, sure to garner respect of critics and fans alike.
