AMERICAN HI-FI kuendigen ein akustisches Rerelease ihres selbstbetitelten Debutalbums an. Die Platte soll am 29. April via Rude Records erscheinen. Vorab gibt es mit "Flavor Of The Weak" einen ersten Eindruck zur Neuaufmachung von "American Hi-Fi".
Frontmann Stacy Jones zum Release:
“The guys at Rude Records asked us if we would be interested in doing an acoustic version of our first album. We said "No". Haha. Then we thought about it for a minute and decided it sounded fun! It was most definitely a challenge.Translating big guitar, riffy rock music to an acoustic form can be difficult. Part of the reason we agreed to do it is that we like to be tested. This record, being our first, was obviously a pivotal and important time for us, both as a band and personally. It was fun to relive some of those erstwhile emotions as we re-recorded the album. We set up at Sunset Sound and recorded most of the album live with minimal overdubs. Some of the songs retain their original arrangement, while others took on a new life.”
