This would’ve been Bayside‘s 20th anniversary, but with the ever-changing pandemic, the band had to forgo any celebration involving touring. So instead, they celebrate their incredible fans with a new EP, Acoustic Volume 3, due out on December 11 on Hopeless Records.
They’ve also worked on a new video for the song, “Light Me Up,” which features fan-submitted clips with them at their happiest moments.
In addition to the new track, the EP will also feature four classic Bayside songs reimagined.
“We had no intentions of recording anything this year,” shares frontman Anthony Raneri. “We decided going into the studio and working on something was a safe way to stay creative, do what we love and also give the fans something special.”
Acoustic, Volume 3 serves as a “follow-up” to 2019’s Interrobang? Interrobang? is the band’s heaviest record to-date and earned the #5 spot on the Record Label Independent chart, as well as #6 Current Rock, #9 LP Vinyl, #10 Current Digital, and #14 Current Albums. It also broke into the Billboard Top 200.
Bayside is Anthony Raneri, Jack O’Shea, Nick Ghanbarian, and Chris Guglielmo.
