The Divided Line

Posted by Shane Macaulay on 2017/06/30

Toronto-based band, The Divided Line, might be the next big thing in Canadian rock music.
Inspired by the music of alternative metal bands, such as Tool and Incubus, Blair Barton (Guitar) began writing songs in 2009. His desire to make the project a reality soon saw the band grow to include long-time friend, Reza Shaffaf (Bass Guitar). It wasn’t long until the band started creating a buzz both in and out of Toronto. Their captivating style had even caught the attention of major industry representatives from RoadRunner Records and Warner Music.

Keeping a band together is hard work. A relationship with two people is hard enough, add two more to the mix and things can get really complicated. After various lineup changes and releasing three singles with guest artist Venn in 2014, they took a break to regroup and rebuild.

Persistence pays off. Now joined by Greg Cave (multi-instrumentalist & singer/song-writer) and Luke Scott (Drummer, previously from Rumsfield) the group has bounced back quickly, writing new songs, performing shows and developing releases and videos.

Intense grooves. Atmospheric sounds. The Divided Line is a band that defies all boundaries, pushing their fans to their limit and back again. With their unique brand of progressive rock, the band delivers a melodic, hard-hitting sound, putting an innovative spin on the hard rock genre.
