Many have distinguished VNV Nation for their live performances. Ronan Harris has an VNV Nation Noireinstinct to feed and work from the energy of the crowd.

Noire, as with every VNV Nation album is a remarkable and awaited compilation of musical arrangements that delve into social and political commentary. According to the press release, Ronan Harris describes his latest music form as “dark and intense energy that doesn’t hold back.” A first for VNV Nation is the release of their first music off from the tenth (10th track of Noire titled; Where is the Future.

In our interview in 2016, Harris alluded to the fact that music videos were not relevant. It seems time and the outlook on music videos has changed. VNV Nation enthusiasts welcomed the music video release with joviality.
