Second out is a 4-LP box set and 3-CD box with material recorded during a tour of Norway in January/February 2014, which was released in October 2014 and called "Erta Ale". Summer of 2014 saw the band busy at Moers Festival, Kongsberg Jazzfestival and the Blow Out festival in Oslo.

Reviews from Moers claimed PNL Large Unit as one of the highlights of the festival. The band will also be touring Europa and North America in 2015. The music is composed by Nilssen-Love but is open enough for the players to focus on interaction, free improvisation, sound, dynamics and energy. The band is stripped down to single players, duoes etc and at times split into several groups.

The power of the whole groups is of course a treat in itself when in full blast. Traces of Nilssen-Love´s experience from groups like Peter Brötzmann Chicago tentet, Ken Vandermark´s Territory band and Frode Gjerstad´s Circulasione Totale Orchestra are of course evident. There is no doubt that Nilssen-Love has taken inspiration from his years in these bands but still with the aim to create a new group with a sound of it´s own. Jon Rune Strøm – bass / Andreas Wildhagen – drums / Paal Nilssen-Love – drums / Mats Äleklint - trombone / Christian Meaas Svendsen - bass / Klaus Holm – alto and baritone saxophone, Bb clarinet / Kasper Værnes – alto saxophone / Thomas Johansson – trumpet / Børre Mølstad – tuba / Ketil Gutvik – guitar / Lasse Marhaug – electronics.
