Out now via Spleen+ is a brand new EP from the cult Belgian post-punk/new wave band The Names: “Volume”. This new EP holds 4 tracks and can be downloaded right now from Bandcamp. This new EP comes just before the release of their upcoming studio album, “Encore!”.

Kicking off with “Far From The Factories” (which was earlier on released as a 2-track single backed by the track “Apophenia”), the three other tracks are “Mort D’Amour”, “Watching For The New World” and “Laudanum”.

This new EP now also offers a video for “Far From The Factories” set against the backdrop of Belgium’s industrial landscape.

The Names are legends of the post-punk / new wave scene and emerged from the iconic Factory Records label alongside the likes of Joy Division and New Order.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
