Face To Face announce new album "Hold Fast", stream new song "Disconnected"

US punk rockers Face To Face will be releasing a new acoustic album titled "Hold Fast (Acoustic Sessions)" that will be out on July 27th via Fat Wreck Chords. The album will contain acoustic versions of songs from all over Face To Face's lengthy career. You can preorder the album right here.

The band states:
“During last year’s Econo-Live tour, we included a VIP package for the first time ever,” [frontman Trever Keith] begins. “I wanted to do something more than just signing autographs or taking pictures, so we added an acoustic set every night before the show. What came out of that experience was this realization that our songs, when stripped down, had a really cool identity that didn’t exist the way that we play them as a full band, punk-rock style. We started to notice this connection with the people who were watching, and we started thinking, ‘Maybe we should record this.’” So Keith and his band—longtime bassist Scott Shiflett, drummer Danny Thompson and guitarist Dennis Hill—did just that, booking a studio during an off-day on tour to capture this raw, stripped-down snapshot of their catalog. From there, the band approached Fat about releasing the album, but even though the label was supportive of the project, Keith himself wasn’t happy with the result: He decided to scrap the original sessions and have the band hit the studio once more, this time with more songs and refined arrangements that include guest musicians (including accomplished pedal-steel player Gary Brandin and Dirty Heads percussionist Jon Olazabal) and unique instrumentation such as mandolin, piano and harmonium.
