Stick To Your Guns announce The Meaning Remains acoustic EP
California hardcore punks Stick To Your Guns have announced details of a new four-track acoustic EP, The Meaning Remains.
The band have reworked three fan-favourites (Amber, Forgiveness Of Self and Nobody) for the upcoming release, as well as tackling a‑ha’s classic pop hit Take On Me (yes, really). In advance of the full thing arriving on February 18 via End Hits Records, STYG have shared EP opener Amber, a stunning acoustic take on the 2010 song from the band’s The Hope Division album. Check it out below
“This is an EP of some of our most popular STYG songs translated into in a new light,” explains vocalist Jesse Barnett. “Although the setting of these songs may seem slow and somber, the meaning of these songs remains with the same furious passion for which they were intended. They are sung quietly and gently from the same place that they are screamed. For us, fury and peace go hand and hand. They are both tools that we believe are necessary. We hope you enjoy these songs you’ve heard a thousand times – but now in a new way.”
