American punk rock band Strung Out have an EP due May 11 that is not what most listeners would expect. The upcoming EP features old and new songs played in acoustic.
Black Out The Sky serves as a curious blend of old and new, repurposing two classic tracks, and putting forth six new. Each track is channelled through an acoustic lens, capturing a mature side of Strung Out that was perhaps only hinted at in Cruz’s latest solo work, Jason Cruz & Howl. – Cole Faulkner
The reflective EP is expected to be dark and mellow as the band conveys themes of aging and rebirth. It is a completely new direction for the metal-influenced tech-punk band.
Listen to the first song released from “Black Out The Sky” below and catch Strung Out at The Regent on May 18. Tickets available here.
