volumes no sleep

Volumes are nearing the release of their sophomore full-length record, which is seemingly overdue — outside of a new single last year, we haven’t heard music from the group since 2011 — and have shared a teaser video showcasing samples of new material. The album, titled No Sleep,  will evidently take Volumes in a markedly different direction.
