Spineshank Go Unplugged

Spineshank were recently forced to perform a special, impromptu acoustic set in Ogden, UT. Just two hours prior to their scheduled performance, all power was cut on the city block that the venue is located on. Their camp sent over this recap:

After some thought, the band reached out to the promoter to help them find some acoustic guitars in order to keep the show going. Fans witnessed a unique performance experience that has never happened in Spineshank's history: a candle-lit, zero amplification set that opened viewers' eyes to the barest and most honest side of the band.

"What could have been a complete disaster turned out to be one of the most magical evenings in this bands history," states guitarist Mike Sarkisyan. "It was rather crazy. I mean, when bands do acoustic sets, there are still mics and amplification involved. We just did it completely bare bones. We had no other choice and the kids went f**king nuts."

"We had never attempted to do anything acoustic in this band, so we were very nervous and skeptical at the same time," adds singer Jonny Santos. "Then I realized that this band has always done its best to come through for its fans over the years and this was one of those moments. We found two acoustic guitars from some locals and Mike and I dove head-first into what was one of the most amazing sets I have ever played in my life. My hats off to the fans that waited for what was the first acoustic set in SPINESHANK history. I feel blessed to have been a part of that night."
