After a few weeks of teasing a new release, the guys in MxPx have announced Acoustic Collection. As you may be able to tell from the title, it’s an album of revamped, acoustic versions of a handful of the band’s classic songs. Here’s what frontman Mike Herrera had to say about the album, which is being released digitally on July 6th:
“This was a request record from our fans. We’ve been asked hundreds of times to release an acoustic album and we finally have complied, just in time for our 22nd anniversary milestone. Most of these I’ve been performing live acoustically for a while now, but I rearranged some of them specifically for this release, giving the songs a whole new perspective and feel. Although these are studio-quality performances, I really tried to keep the overall sound of the production reined in and focused on the crux of the songs. All the tracks are my favorite ones to do acoustically.”
You can give the first track from the 12-song record to be made available for streaming – an acoustic version of “Let It Happen” – and check out the album’s tracklist below. If you wanna pre-order Acoustic Collection, head on over to the MxPx Bandcamp.
