Celebrating 15 years of being a band and the release of a pop rock milestone, American Hi-Fi went back into the studio this past January to track an acoustic version of their debut album, released 15 years ago. The result of the studio session was American Hi-Fi Acoustic, a reworking of their original album that offers a new and fresh acoustic sound. You can check out the “Flavor Of The Weak Acoustic” video below. The album will be out April 29th via Rude Records.
Singer Stacy Jones comments: “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.”
