Without any publicity, on September 30, 2014, the band performed for the first time on stage at the Mercedes Bar Porto, Portugal, in a secret concert, only for guests, friends and the press .
The interest in the public and the press of the genre has earned the NU:N many invitations to perform in clubs and festivals.
In order to promote the album during 2015, the band performs in charismatic European festivals such as the Sacrosanct Festival in the city of Reading, United Kingdom and the SGM Festival Gothic Week in Madrid, Spain, also performing in Porto and Almada, In Portugal, leading to the materialization of his growing reputation as an obscure band cementing his underground status.

: naked until noema / 2016 :
At the beginning of 2016 the band began to compose songs that would be part of the second album, "naked until noema." Recorded, mixed and mastered between July and September 2016 at Vulcanalia Studios, the new album appears as an intriguing album that adds a new Layer to the career of the band, where elements of pure Gothic Rock, Industrial, Post-Punk and Darkwave are involved by circus and Arab melodic constructions.
With 11 songs and a duration of 56:26 minutes, "naked until noema" is a more obscure, mystical and intimate work.
The album features a number of prominent artists, from writing to music, including José Luis Peixoto, the acclaimed Portuguese Dramaturg and poet, Oliver Heuer, leader of the iconic German band Sweet William and Carfax Haddo and Stephanie Sabat from the post punk band Last Dusk from Costa Rica.
At the end of September 2016, NU:N released the digital EP with the singles "ceremonial" and "carved silence" on the platform bandcamp, anticipating the new album. The album "naked until noema" is released on October 31, 2016, in CD and digital format, with a performance in the underground club of Heaven's Bell in Porto.
The new work brings together excellent reviews in the international press and is also very well received by fans of the Gothic Rock / Post Punk / Industrial movement.
For support of the album, in late 2016, two new videos of the themes "romeo without juliet" and "seeds of absence" are released followed for “green hour glides” video.
