Attention everyone, ya girl is reviewing some acoustic stuff today. I repeat, acoustic stuff is being reviewed today by yours truly and I am very excited. This week has been such a bummer but at least I got to look forward to having Bayside’s acoustic album, Acoustic Volume 3, released on December 11th via Hopeless Records. Ugh, what a great way to end a week. Now if you know me or if you’ve heard me babble on before, I LOVE a good acoustic album. Throw that shit on repeat and let the chilling in bed all day begin. Let us dive into this review, shall we? Acoustic Volume 3 has 5 songs total, all with the slightly softer touch and approach to the creation, especially when compared to the band’s normal sound. Four of these songs come from across Bayside’s discography, completely reimagined, and the last song is a brand-new track titled “Light Me Up”. Honestly, knowing how this band normally sounds with their more hardcore, punky tones, I was excited to hear this EP. I love hearing different bands’ take on the acoustic thing and seeing how they go about creating the style in their own way. I have […] For more, go to: (Source)

In a year that should’ve seen them celebrating their 20th anniversary, renowned punk act Bayside is celebrating their fans instead. The band has announced Acoustic Volume 3, out December 11th via Hopeless Records. Additionally, they have shared their new music video “Light Me Up,” featuring fan-submitted clips of their happiest moments. In addition to the new track, Acoustic Volume 3 will also feature four classic Bayside songs reimagined.  “We had no intentions of recording anything this year,” shares frontman Anthony Raneri. “We decided going into the studio and working on something was a safe way to stay creative, do what we love and also give the fans something special.”  Acoustic Volume 3 serves as a follow-up – and a stark juxtaposition – to 2019’s Interrobang, out now on Hopeless Records. Acoustic Volume3 is set to be released on December 11th via Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available now at Acoustic Volume 3 Tracklisting: 1. Light Me Up 2. The New Flesh 3. Not Fair 4.
