Girls Names Announce New Album ‘The New Life’

The Belfast four-piece are set to release their second album on the 18th February.

Girls Names have announced plans to release their brand new album, ‘The New Life’.

The Belfast four-piece are set to release their second album - the follow-up to their 2011 debut ‘Dead To Me’ - on the 18th February through Tough Love/Slumberland.

Speaking of their second album, Cathal Cully has said: ‘The New Life is not an over night change for Girls Names - just over two years in fact. Dead to Me literally was dead to us by the time it was committed to wax. But it’s a learning curve. We started moving on as artists the moment we finished that recording session, maybe even before. Not to dwell on the past, The New Life is what happens when you reset everything back to zero and start again, but try to perfect. It starts back at zero the minute the needle hits the groove but we’re also starting back from zero once the needle lifts at the end of the record. Ad infinitum. The New Life is what follows now.”

Girls Names have also announced a series of tour dates, including an appearance at Whelans in Dublin next month, as follows.

22 Dublin - Whelans

10 Utrecht - Ekko (w/ Holograms)
11 Groningen - Eurosonic Festival

20 Belfast - The Menagerie
21 Dublin - The Grand Social
22 Leeds - The Cockpit
24 Glasgow - Broadcast
25 Manchester - The Castle Hotel
26 London - Sebright Arms
