Prior to the release of their debut album ‘Casino’ in 2020, Glasgow based Anchor Lane had been building a following with to their relentless gigging schedule. The album garnered rave reviews across the board and went straight into the Official UK Rock Albums Chart at Number 9, scoring the band their first Top 10.
