    I'm into this. I wouldn't have been able to guess it was Name Taken if I just heard the song on its own, but knowing it's them I can definitely hear some elements of their old sound in it.

    Name Taken brings me back to the good old days of Absolutepunk.net. Song is not up on Spotify yet, but they did say sometime today or tomorrow.

    Half of me wants to whine about how different it sounds, but all of me wants to bang my head and listen to this on repeat.

    Cannot emphasize enough how happy this makes me. The sound is not what I expected but gets better with every listen. Hope they do more. Hold On is one of my favorite all-time records; still know every word.

    Awesome that they're back to making new music. I love Hold On

    Wikipedia says they started out as "All That's Left" and while I don't think it's the same band, that reminded me of this forgotten band

    Every time I hear the band name Panic at the Disco, I think of Name Taken. Hold On was a good record for the kind of musis/label at the the time. Again, another example
    of a band that I would have been interested in hearing follow up records from.

    x2 on the hold on comments. what a great album from start to finish that (for me at least) still has staying power for me to consider good now.

    i'm sure that after a few listens and once i divorce my self from what i "expect" from name taken, i'll enjoy this too.

    All That's Left was definitely a different band, but I learned about both them and Name Taken from the old mp3.com. I always thought that they would make the jump to the forefront of pop-punk at the time, but it just never clicked i guess?

    I think these guys were like 18 when Hold On came out. That album is perfect.

    If that’s true, it’s crazy to me. I was 18 when that album came out. I was busy being late to every class senior year and these guys were busy making one of my favorite albums.
     
  17. As far as I know, this is all they're doing right now. They just wanted to as friends get together again and write/record something.

    What was the reason they stopped recording initially? Was it an actual “break up” or did they just have other things going on and music went on the back burner?
     
  19. AFIAK they decided to go to school/college and the album only sold ok.

    I really liked this bands energy. I’d say A Year Spent Cold was my favourite song by them. Some bands flourished in the Napster era due to file sharing and exposure, and other underperformed and fell through the cracks in the big picture.

    Still fun to see bands like name taken, autopilot off, acceptance, and such coming back.sort of.

    Sounds a lot different to Hold On, but I like it. The last minute or so sounds like it could be a Local Natives track

    England.

    It's got a Killers vibe to me. Massively.

    I love Hold On, to this day. Part of me when I heard they had a new song expected to hear more of that, but it wouldn't be right. 14 years is a long time. It has not gripped me instantly, but I will give it a few listens and see where I fall.
