We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Names Without Numbers’ lyric video for their song “The Apathy Anthem” (watch it below). You can get the track for free by contributing to the band’s new album Indiegogo campaign.
The band comment on the songs meaning:
‘The Apathy Anthem’ is a song about letting go and having fun. It’s healthy for everyone to cut loose and ditch responsibilities every now and again. And although the theme has a bit of a reckless tone, the central message is that life can become a whole lot more enjoyable if you can give up trying to control everything and just let go.
About the band:
Names Without Numbers is a four-piece rock and roll band from Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA. Since forming in the summer of 2000, they’ve released an EP and a full-length album, toured the Midwest, played in venues ranging from basements to festivals, slept on floors, fought…a lot, took a break, started families, came out of retirement, and are now prepping to release their first new album in 15 years, for which they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign.
The album is preceded by the brand single “Goodnight” on Indie Vision Music, which can be streamed below.
Stylistically, they play a unique blend of indie-rock with plenty of raw emotion and pop-punk energy. Think: Jimmy Eat World, Tiny Moving Parts, Moving Mountains, Anberlin, Thrice, etc.
“I would say that this time around is different mostly because of maturity, both emotionally and musically,” lead singer and guitarist Ryan Cruickshank says. “We’re so much better as musicians then we were 10 years ago. And the time off also allowed us to learn to appreciate each other and this opportunity to create music together. Not everyone is blessed to be able to be in a band with some of their best friends and create songs that inspire them. The time off really renewed our passion for it all, as it gave us a glimpse of what life is like without this creative outlet. I think that renewed passion comes out in the songwriting.”
