VNV Nation returns with brand new single today, “Before the Rain”. For Ronan Harris it’s his first new material under the VNV Nation flag since 2018’s “Noire “. The single release coincides with a spring 2023 European Tour.

The single, which as usual has a real anthem feeling, is taken from the forthcoming album “Electric Sun”, originally set for release in June 2022, to be released on Metropolis Records (North America) later this year, on April 14th that is. A series of singles will be released before then, starting in mid-February with “Before The Rain”.

The new album will be out in various formats including a hardcover CD book with a 20 page booklet containing special artwork, lyrics and liner notes.There will also be a double vinyl LP in a regular and limited electric-blue vinyl edition. Next is a deluxe limited boxset limited to 1500 copies with exclusive artwork, a double vinyl album, the cd album, a 12″ with two extended versions, a deluxe 44 page hardcover book with illustrations by the band’s long-term partners Rodolfo Reyes and Michal Karcz and a few other extras.

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.
