Northlane Launch “Northlane Worldeaters” Community Through Patreon

Northlane have launched a new fan community through Patreon. The venture, which they are calling “Northlane Worldeaters,” will allow them to continue as fully independent artists.

Northlane said the following:

“We have worked tirelessly over the last 12 years to become the best version of Northlane that we possibly can, but times are changing. We are a completely independent band. We have no label, no management and we self produce our own records.

The Northlane Worldeaters is our chance to give more to our fans, to safeguard the longevity of what we love to do, and create a community of likeminded people to share ideas and our love for music.

Over the last 12 years we have amassed a wealth of knowledge, resources and held a lot back. This is our chance to give in a way that we don’t have to compromise.

The Northlane Worldeaters is an exclusive club, With many tiers of membership. From less than the price of a beer we’ll be giving you access to new music in advance of the rest of the world, VIP concert tickets, exclusive streams, exclusive merch, exclusive vinyl, an entire library of the tools that we use to create music, photographs that document the history of this band, album stems, Q&A sessions, an online community, unheard demos, presale concert tickets and countless other perks.”

04. “Enemy Of The Night” (acoustic)
05. “Sleepless” (acoustic)

You can stream the acoustic version of “Rift” below. Marcus Bridge commented:

“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.”

Northlane Part Ways With Bassist Brendon Padjasek

Northlane have parted ways with Brendon Padjasek. The bassist left the group to focus on his home life. The band will now be moving forward as a four-piece.

Josh Smith commented:

“We wanted to curate a remix record for quite some time. The idea really got some legs on our last European tour, and with some idle time on our hands the back end of 2020 was the perfect time to get this project fully underway. We’ve handpicked some of our favourite artists to work with outside of the metal genre to take our songs and make them their own.”

Watch Northlane’s “Live At The Roundhouse” Set

Northlane have shared footage of their entire October 11, 2019 performance at The Roundhouse in Sydney, Australia. That show was previously available to stream as part of a virtual event last year and was later released as a digital live album titled “Live At The Roundhouse.”

Northlane Cancel 2021 Summer European Festival Tour

Northlane have cancelled their summer run on the European festival circuit due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band said they will now be “focusing on [their] music and taking up opportunities to play for [their] fans at home.”

The group commented:

“2020 was the year from hell for most of you and this year so far, feels quite the same. While music is a refuge from your daily struggles, it can’t replace the fact that there have been drastic changes, losses of jobs, houses and loved ones.

Like many in our line of work, we’ve been off the road for almost a year now. With most of the band living under strict lockdown in Melbourne for the majority of the year, it’s been a struggle to say the least.

We were booked to play a run of festivals in Europe over June 2020. Every single one of those dates was cancelled and pushed back into mid 2021. The European festival circuit is the peak of touring for us and we’ve been looking forward to it, albeit with a sense of apprehension of whether or not it would go ahead.

We planned to wait it out and see, but we’ve been forced to make a call on it now, and unfortunately our decision has been to cancel our entire European festival run. We could sit on our hands and wait to find out, or move forward with alternate plans that put us in a position of far less risk.

While we are not ones to shirk our commitments to these festivals, promoters and our fans, we needed to put ourselves first in this situation, not to mention the health and wellbeing of our crew and fans. We didn’t want to wait for a tour that might never happen, and we didn’t want to be coerced into a situation where we are compromising safety and potentially spending weeks in isolation to travel to the other side of the world.

With so much uncertainty it did not make sense for us to sit idle and wait. Instead, we will be focusing on our music and taking up opportunities to play for our fans at home. That being said, we are already plotting our return to Europe and the UK, and when the time is right, and the world is less crazy, we’ll be back bigger and better than ever.

In the meantime, if you happen to live in Australia you can catch us at Full Tilt.”
