Northlane is now streaming an acoustic version of their song "Rift" off the upcoming 2D acoustic EP. The EP is a companion piece to Northlane's most recent album 5G, including a new version of the song "Sleepless" which originally debuted in the band's 2020 documentary Negative Energy.
"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," said vocalist Marcus Bridge. "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."
