New Music From Fearless Records: Punk Goes Acoustic Vol. 3

Punk Goes Acoustic Vol. 3

26 July 2019

Launched in 2000, the Punk Goes series embodies each ebb and flow of popular culture for nearly 20 years — with a twist. As such, the Fearless Records staple holds the distinction of being “the top-selling compilation in the alternative genre,” tallying cumulative album sales in excess of 2.5 million and nearly a-quarter-of-a-billion streams to date.

Its 18 volumes encompass Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 1-7, Punk Goes Classic Rock, Punk Goes 80s, PunkGoes 90s, Vol. 1-2, Punk Goes X, Punk Goes Crunk, Punk Goes Acoustic Vol, 1-2, and Punk Goes Christmas.

The catalog boasts exclusive contributions by multiplatinum award-winning talent-ranging from A Day To Remember, All-American Rejects, and Rise Against to Rise Pierce the Veil, All Time Low, Sleeping with Sirens, and Asking Alexandria. Not to mention, the legacy includes multiple Top 20 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 as well as Top 5 entries on the Top Independent Albums Chart, Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums Chart, and Top Rock Albums Chart. It served as a game-changer for many acts including Tonight Alive, A Skylit Drive, and Juliet Simms housing their “most-streamed” songs.

Now of legal voting age, Punk Goes reintroduces itself in 2019 by way of PunkGoes Acoustic, Vol. 3. The nineteenth installment welcomes acoustic contributions from the likes of Mayday Parade, Taking Back Sunday, Underoath, Set It Off, Grayscale, Circa Survive, and more. This time around, an A-list roster delivers stripped-down interpretations of fan favorites as well as a few surprises. As the latest volume showcases another side of heavy music, alternative, and punk royalty, it also boldly extends the legacy of Punk Goes.
