Aussie metalcore outfit Northlane have announced details of an acoustic EP, ‘2D’, which is set to be released on May 21st 2021 via UNFD.
The 5-track effort revisits tracks from the band’s ‘Alien’ album era, as vocalist Marcus Bridge explains.
“Recording an acoustic EP is something that we’ve wanted to do for quite some time and felt right with the personal nature of the songs from ‘Alien’. I wanted to strip these songs back to the bare minimum to juxtapose the soundscapes of the album, a 2D version of sorts. A song like ‘Rift’ has a completely different energy in this context and took on new meaning with the recording in the depths of lockdown, now almost feeling like a cry of frustration and despair.”
