“Hold Fast (Acous­tic Ses­sions)” FAT WRECK

Exclaim! - - FAB -

July 27. When it comes to punk rock, few can ri­val what FACE TO FACE has ac­com­plished in 27 years (!) as a band. While al­ways stay­ing true to their sig­na­ture sound, they are con­sis­tently find­ing new and ex­cit­ing ways to keep their fans in­vig­o­rated. With this in mind, it will come as no sur­prise that the band shifted gears on their up­com­ing al­bum Hold Fast (Acous­tic Ses­sions). As the name im­plies, the new al­bum fea­tures 10 acous­tic ren­der­ings of clas­sic Face To Face songs. Com­prised of fan-fa­vorites rang­ing across their en­tire cat­a­log, the songs on Hold Fast

(Acous­tic Ses­sions) are so much more than sim­ply stripped down ver­sions of the orig­i­nals on acous­tic gui­tar. The songs come to life in a whole new way with ro­bust in­stru­men­ta­tion and a savvy mu­si­cal per­spec­tive that puts them right at home among to­day’s most re­spected Amer­i­cana and Alt-Acous­tic acts. Of course, these fresh new takes still fea­ture the un­for­get­table melodies that fans orig­i­nally fell in love with, mak­ing them the per­fect ad­di­tion to sum­mer playlists for both long-time fans and new lis­ten­ers alike.
