Partyline is a Washington, D.C.-based punk rock band consisting of singer/songwriter Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile, Cold Cold Hearts, Dig Yr. Grave, Deep Lust, Hawnay Troof, etc.), guitarist Angela Melkisethian (Hott Beat, The Savage Boys and Girls Club), drummer Crystal Bradley, and new touring drummer (as of March 2007) Gene Vincent Melkisethian (The Savage Boys and Girls Club, No Justice). Formed in 2004, Partyline toured the Northeast in January 2005 and covered the rest of the coast throughout March. With them they take their 24-hour party and interject it with such hot topics as Ralph Nader and what it means to be a girl.

Their debut record, Girls With Glasses, was released June 2005 and is distributed by Retard Disco. The band toured the U.S. a number of times in 2005, followed by a trip to Germany and the Netherlands for their first international shows. They then spent the end of October and every day in November touring more of Europe, finishing the year off with a hometown gig in Washington, D.C.

The band spent most of the first half of 2006 writing songs for their debut full-length, Zombie Terrorist, which they began recording at the end of May and was released October 24, 2006. Chris Richards, of Q and Not U fame, helped with the production of Zombie Terrorist.

In late November and early December 2006, the band toured Australia and New Zealand and toured Europe for the third time in April 2007. Partyline will tour Europe for the fourth time in April 2008.
