New EP, "Volume", out now!

 Emerging from the iconic Factory Records label alongside the likes of JOY DIVISION and NEW ORDER, THE NAMES have solidified their place in music history.
 Introducing "Volume," the new EP from THE NAMES! Prepare to be swept away by four mesmerizing tracks that add another dynamic and eclectic chapter to their illustrious discography, just before the highly anticipated release of their upcoming studio album, "Encore!".
 Kicking off with the beloved single "Far From The Factories", THE NAMES deliver their signature blend of introspective lyricism and atmospheric instrumentation. It's a sonic journey from the streets of Manchester to the avant-garde realm of Andy Warhol's New York City, all captured in an intimate video set against the backdrop of Belgium's industrial landscape.
 Next up, "Mort D'Amour" takes us on a lyrical odyssey through the complexities of love, set to a mesmerizing blend of trip-hop beats and romantic melodies. It's a tale as old as time, echoing the timeless tragedies of Romeo & Juliet and Tristan & Isolde.
 "Watching For The New World" follows suit with its catchy hooks and cinematic grooves, offering a tantalizing glimpse into a future that may not be as bright as it seems.
 And just when you think you've heard it all, THE NAMES surprise us with "Laudanum", something completely different (but not too much?), a hauntingly beautiful piano/voice composition that delves into the mysteries of art and literature, narrating mesmerizing explorations of the impact of mind-altering substances on creativity, the whole underscored by Michel Sordinia's unmistakable vocals.
 “This song though was written and played without using any illegal drugs or substances”, adds Michel with a big smile on his face…
With "Volume," THE NAMES once again prove why they're legends of the post-punk / new wave scene. So crank up the "Volume", set it up to eleven and immerse yourself in their unparalleled sound.
 Don't miss out on the latest chapter in THE NAMES' storied career. Experience "Volume" today and prepare to be enchanted.
