Five-piece rock band Heartist recently dropped an acoustic version of their song “Skeletons,” alongside the announcement that they’ll be spending the rest of 2015 on the road, partially with Islander and the Tooth and Nail-signed XXI. (You can here the original version of “Skeletons” below.)

Vocalist Bryce Beckley spoke about the song via press release:

“I can count the number of times we’ve performed any of our songs acoustic on one hand, so it goes without saying that I was a bit nervous when it came time to track this. We’re used to playing and hearing this song as a full band, and any musician can tell you that after performing a song hundreds of times, it often feels like muscle memory takes over. As a band, we have always pushed ourselves to step out of our comfort zones, and this was a pretty big step for me.”

The Orange County, CA band released their debut album, Feeding Fiction, in 2014, but has been together since 2011, releasing an EP in 2012, Nothing You Didn’t Deserve.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
