Irish post-punk band Girls Names will be releasing their third album, Arms Around a Vision, this Friday (October 2) via Tough Love. Now you can stream the whole album. Listen to it below via Noisey, who premiered it.

Noisey spoke to frontman Cathal Cully about the album and he had this to say: “I made this when I was 29 in the midst of the most turbulent time I’ve had to deal with to date and I’ve just turned 30 now so I think it’s actually a great celebration to be marking that personal milestone with this band’s best body of work yet. We’re proud of it so hopefully I still will be. But my world’s opened up a lot more and I’ve had to open myself up into a different way of living since we made this. I’m still finding out about myself all the time and therefore I’m still finding out about this record. It has a sense of urgency and it feels fresh and vital. People will talk that it sounds like post-this and post-that but it’s 100 percent 2015. We’ve separated ourselves from a lot of our contemporaries-can you name another band who’s made a record like this in 2015? It feels relevant more than ever now. If the revolution has started by the time I’m 40 then hopefully we’ll still be able to celebrate this record.”
