Northlane Announce “2D” Acoustic EP, Share Stripped-Down Take On “Rift”


In addition to more recently working on their new studio album, Northlane also recorded an acoustic EP titled “2D” during the COVID-19 lockdown. That effort will be out on May 21st through UNFD and the group’s frontman Marcus Bridge had the following to say about it:

“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.”
