Choke Up has announced the pending series release of acoustic versions of their infamous post hardcore songs. The first video was put out earlier this week, a stripped down version of “Wildflower” off their 2015 LP ‘Black Coffee, Bad Habits’.
Fans of the band may have already figured out that Choke Up unplugged is a valuable listening experience with a number of acoustic tracks on the 2013 EP ‘Pilot Passenger / Joaquin Murietta’ and ‘Black Coffee, Bad Habits’’ ending track “Dry Out”.
Lifting the veil of the intense audio assault of a typical live show, and taking a page from the band’s early years of living room sets, these acoustic versions highlight the poetic beauty and intuitive writing skills that contribute to the faultless foundation of a Choke Up song.
You can see Choke Up live and loud at O'Brien's Pub this Sunday, November 8th with After the Fall (NY), Raw Blow and Youth Funeral. 18+ // 8PM // $8. Event details.
