2017 marks The Waifs 25th Anniversary. We are celebrating and commemorating this event by releasing 25 songs recorded live & acoustic at Josh’s beautiful house in the bushland of South Coast NSW, Australia.
You had a say in all this! We asked ourselves what do our fans want to hear? Over the years we have experimented with songs and instrumentation in the studio. This time, to really capture the essence of our music and the essence of who we are today as artists, we decided to sit around a couple of mics with our guitars, a makeshift junk kit & a double bass, press record and play.
So this one is for you guys.
A makeshift studio was set up (with audio engineer James Newhouse) in Josh’s unfinished kitchen. Initially it was going to be some covers and acoustic versions of old favorites. But the songs kept flowing. We recorded 30 songs in 2 weeks and didn’t even get to the covers. There are very few about Homesick and Highways!
FOR THE FIRST TWENTY FIVE DAYS OF SALE THE BAND WANT IT PRICED AT $12 TO SAY THANKS TO THEIR LOYAL FANS!!! What legends! After that it’s back to full price.
