Veteran punk rock unit Strung Out has announced the release of their acoustic EP “Black Out The Sky”, which is set for a May 11th release via Fat Wreck Chords. You can give “Town Of Corazon” a listen below and pre-order the album HERE.
“To call this album simply an acoustic record is not doing it the justice”, explains STRUNG OUT vocalist Jason Cruz. ” I believe this band is capable of so much and it’s pretty evident on this release. To me, punk is about defying expectations. Everything around us is screaming for attention or trying to sell us something by bombarding our senses. What better way to answer back than with a whisper. That’s punk.”
Black Out The Sky is a collection of six brand new songs and two acoustic renditions of Strung Out’s classic ballads “Matchbook” off of 1998’s groundbreaking Twisted by Design and “Unkoil” off of 2002’s An American Paradox. Cruz along with his bandmates Rob Ramos, Jake Kiley, and Chris Aiken entered the studio during January 2017 with producer Kyle Black who’s responsible for 2015’s ferocious Transmission.Alpha.Delta.
In support of Black Out The Sky, Strung Out will be hitting the road with Pennywise on their upcoming outing. The tour will launch in Boise, ID on March 9th then head to Canada after a few West Coast dates and conclude in Omaha, NE on March 23rd.
