When you think of West Coast punk rock—Hell, when you think of punk rock in general—there aren't many names more culturally resonant than Face To Face, the melodic-punk group formed by frontman Trever Keith 27 years ago. The band has weathered the shifting sands of punk rock and pop culture more times than anyone can count, and here they are, nearly three decades later, not only still going strong but finding new and exciting ways to keep their band and their fans invigorated. Case in point: Hold Fast (Acoustic Sessions), the brand new full-length from Face To Face, releasing July 27 on Fat Wreck Chords. As its title so handily points out, this is an acoustic record—the first of Face To Face's career—but the album has more than a few sonic twists and turns, with a career-spanning tracklisting, jumping from 1992's genre classic Don't Turn Away to the band's most recent effort, 2016's return-to-form Protection. As Keith explains, this was sort of a happy accident. "During last year's Econo-Live tour, we included a VIP package for the first time ever," he begins. "I wanted to do something more than just signing autographs or taking pictures, so we added an acoustic set every night before the show. What came out of that experience was this realization that our songs, when stripped down, had a really cool identity that didn't exist the way that we play them as a full band, punk-rock style.
