Nebraska/Iowa based Post-Hardcore/Old School Emo band Names Without Numbers, have made their return known. The band has played quite a few shows this year including a recent gig with Stryper. Names Without Numbers has a show on December 11th with Spoken and Dayshell in Omaha, Nebraska at Lookout Lounge (see flyer below). The band formed in 2000 and has played a distinct blend of (old school) emo and fiery post-hardcore mixed with a special blend of alt rock for good measure. Their sound is unique and all their own. The band last released “Running Marathons / Chasing Ambulances” in 2003 and called it quits in 2006. I’m happy to report that the band is back and will sound better than ever. Watch a special sneak peek at one of their new songs below. You can download their 2003 full length for free right here (or listen below). Recommended for fans of Noise Ratchet, Jimmy Eat World, Anberlin, The Get Up Kids, Braid, Thrice.
