Description

“I think if a song has meaning and is played with heart it can be done in a million different styles, tempos, time signatures, and colours.” - Matt Mays

A year after the release of Once Upon a Hell of a Time…, Matt Mays returns with that record’s companion piece: Twice Upon a Hell of a Time…. An acoustic re-imagining of the songs from the rock record, the tracks are presented in stark, stripped-down contrast to its predecessors. “Once Upon a Hell of a Time... is a Saturday night record,” says Matt. “This version is for the hangover on Sunday.”

Re-contextualizing the songs offers a new window into the lyrics. What he once described as a “party rock record for the brokenhearted” transforms into a reflective and beautiful dive into false escapism, grief, love, and loss.
