The three-piece have also released a limited edition 7" vinyl!
Aussie punk-rockers Short Stack have treated fans to an acoustic version of their latest single, Live4. Swapping out commanding drums and epic guitar lines for a more laid back sonic approach, the new rendition creates a more intimate and vulnerable moment from the three-piece.
Drummer Bradie Webb says of the acoustic version, "Live4 (Acoustic) is a track we made entirely ourselves from my home on a $20 budget! We don’t have an expensive sound booth, so if you listen carefully, you can hear the beautiful Central Coast ambiance of Commodores doing donuts at the end of my street.
The release arrives alongside a limited edition 7" red vinyl pressing, made out of recycled materials. The vinyl will feature the original version of the track, as well as the acoustic rendition, and is available now.
Speaking of the conceptual nature of track, frontman Shaun Diviney shares: "Live4 is song is about celebrating being the underdog. We wanted a huge, anthemic song that would feel massive live. Choirs is something we’ve never done before, but we really wanted the chorus to explode."
Following a newly announced, one-off performance at Melbourne's The Espy on June 4, the trio will be hitting the road, performing on stages nationwide! Kicking off in Canberra on November 4, the tour will continue on to Newcastle, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne, before wrapping up with two hometown shows at Max Watts in Sydney.
Having announced their reformation in early 2020, the band were set to embark on their national comeback tour, saw multiple cities sold out in a matter of hours. With the shows being rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band continued working away on new music, signing to UNFD. Speaking of their reformation, Diviney shares: "Everything about how we approached this was different... where we used to find a lot of pressure to deliver something specific, we approached this with the thought that this is our chance to be the band we've always wanted to be."
Live4 (Acoustic) is out now! Listen to the track below.
