MxPx release acoustic collection

Yes, it's as good as you think it would be! Celebrating their 22nd anniversary, everyone's favourite punk back has released their first set acoustic songs in MXPX Acoustic Collection 12 tracks, featuring "Punk Rawk Show" from 1995, through to "Aces Up" from a couple of years ago. 

Mike Herrera explains, "This was a request record from our fans. We've been asked hundreds of times to release an acoustic album and we finally have complied, just in time for our 22nd anniversary milestone. Most of these I've been performing live acoustically for a while now, but I rearranged some of them specifically for this release, giving the songs a whole new perspective and feel. Although these are studio-quality performances, I really tried to keep the overall sound of the production reined in and focused on the crux of the songs. All the tracks are my favorite ones to do acoustically."

The album is out no on iTunes and Bandcamp.

UPDATE: There's also a sneaky demos collection released just on Bandcamp
