Bayside members recorded Acoustic as a tribute of sorts to their fallen drummer. The album’s lead track ‘Winter’ was in fact written about this event and is dedicated to his memory. Firstly, the title Acoustic is perhaps a bit misleading. Although acoustic instruments are used on eight of ten songs, these recordings are not performed in an Unplugged style, as they lack bass and drums. The remaining cuts sport full arrangements and electric instruments. These distinctions, however, are trivial as they certainly don’t affect the listener’s enjoyment.
The Bayside live acoustic CD and live DVD includes an acoustic set, full live concert, the exclusive debut of the new song 'Winter', and in depth band and fan interviews. With the completion of Sirens and Condolences in 2004, New York's Bayside delivered a dark, brooding album that left the hearts of legions of fans yearning for more. The unmistakable talent and success of the band won them the title of heroes of the now legendary Long Island emo and indie scene. Now after 50,000 albums, numerous tours and a plethora of introspectively painful lyrics, Bayside have returned with.
