Fresh from the release of their Remix EP 5G, Northlane are backing it up with a new EP release called 2D. The 5-track release, due out May 21 via UNFD, features acoustic versions of fan-favorites from the band\’s Alien era, including “Rift”, which fans can check out here.
Northlane vocalist Marcus Bridge explains how 2D adds another dimension to these tracks:
“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.”
In addition, 2D will feature a heartbreaking stripped-back version of “Sleepless,” which originally debuted in the band\’s 2020 documentary “Negative Energy.”
2D Tracklist
1. Bloodline (acoustic)
3. 4D (acoustic)
4. Enemy Of The Night (acoustic)
5. Sleepless (acoustic)
Northlane will celebrate the release of both 2D and 5G with a limited run of exclusive 12-inch colored LP offerings. Fans can now pre-order at
