After releasing one of this year’s most highly touted punk albums, MAKE DO AND MEND have decided to tone down their driving and blistering post-hardcore sound on the new acoustic EP ‘Part And Parcel’. Set for release on 12” vinyl and digitally on November 21st via ‘Pink Mist’ – a new collective from Holy Roar, Big Scary Monsters, Tangled Talk & Blood And Biscuits.
The EP will be available for pre-order from Monday at Pink Mist and includes exclusive bundle packages and varying vinyl colors and packaging.
The Pink Mist webstore includes both yellow with black haze (strictly limited) and a transparent blue with white haze version.
The band’s merch webstore contains an exclusive clear honey color record, and offers a preorder bundle of the vinyl, a t-shirt and a poster.
Boasting three acoustic versions of songs from their breakthrough debut full-length End Measured Mile (2010, Paper + Plastick/ Holy Roar), as well as a cover by friends, Touche Amore and two brand new songs, Part And Parcel has been on the band’s mind for quite some time. “It’s something we’ve talked about doing for a while,” admits vocalist/guitarist James Carroll. “We wanted to explore the versatility of our songs and also explore our boundaries as songwriters.”
