Girls Names have announced that their new album, The New Life, will be out on February 18th. We got a taster of the their new material early last month when we were unwittingly presented with the title track, 'The New Life', and now it seems they are ready to announce their follow up to 2011’s Dead To Me.

Cathal Cully, the singer and songwriter of the band who also produced the new record, has this to say about their new album:

"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."

Before the album finally hits us, Girls Names have also released 'Hypnotic Regression' for our listening delights onto SoundCloud, which has been embedded below, along with last month's release too.
