Dan let slip on Facebook yesterday that the second album will be completed in recording terms at the end of this week – and that the name of it will be ‘From Without’. He might’ve mentioned that before to be fair, but he encouraged folk to have a hunt on Google to try to find the reference it might be inspired by. So I’ve been doing just that to pass the time – whether I’ve landed on the inspiration for the name or not remains to be seen!
Also, if you haven’t already then get it pre-ordered by Saturday as it will then come signed by the whole band.
In the context of without meaning ‘on the outside’ it’s listed as archaic – so whilst you might be without something, to be – for example – opening a door from without seems a charmingly antiquated way of phrasing compared to opening a door from within. Could it be as simple as that? A traditional way of describing themselves as being from the outside? It sort of fits, no record label, self-releasing, shunning many of the trappings of the modern music industry.
