“I wrote Revolve on an unplugged electric guitar in a hotel room in San Francisco and it sounded great! Obviously then it wasn’t hard to make an all acoustic version of ‘Revolve‘ work. It’s a great riff.”

Buzz Osborne commented:

“I knew I wanted to do something ridiculously big. 36 songs reimagined by us acoustically is certainly ridiculous but it works. The magic of the songs is still there regardless of it being acoustic. Since we weren’t touring we had the time to do something of this size. I’m very excited about this record. Dale and Steven did a fantastic job on this. I think it’s a very special record. I can’t think of anyone else who’s done something like this.”

The effort’s first single, an acoustic version of “Night Goat,” can be found below. Dale Crover had the following to say about that track:

“I think people will be surprised that we can do an acoustic version of a song like ‘Night Goat‘ without losing any of the heaviness. We also worked hard on the vocal arrangements. People are going to freak out!”
