Spending a month in Queensland to work with renowned producer Magoo (Regurgitator, The Jungle Giants, Midnight Oil) at Applewood Lane studios in 2013, “I Need Space” is the album that almost didn’t happen. Days before leaving for Queensland, the band were rehearsing at vocalist Ben's house/studio when a fire sparked and spread. The band escaped safely with only the instruments in their hands, but the house and all of Ben's possessions were lost.
Not only did the recording of their debut album mark a new phase of The Middle Names' musical career, it also marked the closing of a chapter. Coming from playing some of Australia's best festivals (Falls Festival Marion Bay, Dark MoFo, BIGSOUND), and supporting the likes of Ball Park Music, San Cisco, The Jungle Giants, Snakadaktal, and Husky, The Middle Names were ready to finally make their mark, because they had nothing left to lose.
