Noise Republic, a rather fine rock band from Nottingham, have released their first album – Now Is Our Time.

The album was actually recorded in 2009 but other commitments and a change on the band’s line-up delayed things somewhat.

They’re not manufactured, write their own songs and play their own instruments – what’s not to like? Hell, they even designed the artwork.

Below you can sample the album and, if you like it, buy it! I have a physical copy myself, but you can also now download it from a number of sources…

… and many more!

Lastly, you can download it but also purchase physical copies from the US online retailer, CD baby.

Follow Noise Republic on Facebook or Twitter, where you can also find where they’re playing next. Their “official” website is on MySpace. Alternatively, view their own YouTube channel.
