The Expendables, Californiaâ€™s highly respected rock-surf band, is set to release their first full-length acoustic album, Gone Soft on May 17th, 2012. Gone Soft successfully displays their technical music skills, taking their powerhouse rock songs and re-arranging them to highlight a softer side of fan-favorite classic songs. The 12-track album features songs off their past albums, including â€œBowl For Twoâ€, â€œPositive Mind,â€ and many more.
â€œAfter years of fans asking for an acoustic album, we finally delivered. Â While the album is almost entirely acoustic instruments, it is just as stylistically diverse and quirky as the rest of our discography. Â We wanted this to feel like a new album which is why we experimented with different tempos, melodies, and instrumentation while recording music that spans our entire career to date,â€ says Raul of The Expendables.
Simultaneously, The Expendables will head out on their Southwest Gone Soft Tour featuring special guests Unwritten Law from May 18, 2012 â€“ May 26, 2012, in support of their new album.Â Hitting Anaheim, Solana Beach, Ventura, CA and Tempe, AZ, the shows will include both acoustic and electric sets from The Expendables and Unwritten Law.Â Joining them will be acoustic veteran Josh Fischel of the formerly known Bargain Music and DJ Unite from Tribe of Kings.
The Expendables have become a band synonymous with their powerful and energetic live performances, enhanced by dual guitar riffs, solid bass lines and dominating drumbeats. Gone Soft will allow fans to experience the stripped down and unplugged version of The Expendables. All pre-sale ticket holders will receive a free download off of the new album.Â For more information, please visit http://www.theexpendables.net/
