Warped Tour 2015 is underway, and one of our favorite acts hitting the stage is Set It Off, the symphonically inclined four-piece from Florida. We last heard them on the stellar 2014 album Duality. (They also do a mean cover of Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea's "Problem." No joke.) Today, we're proud to premiere Set It Off's Duality: Stories Unplugged EP.
The new release is the band's fourth EP since their 2008 debut Baby You Don't Tripajaharda. It's got surprisingly gentle, characteristically impassioned, live-feeling renditions of five of the Duality cuts, plus a brand new song called "Wild Wild World." Without further ado, spin the new Set It Off EP right here, exclusively on Fuse (and head to iTunes or MerchNOW to buy it for your own library, you responsible music-supporter, you):
Frontman Cody Carson hashed out the Duality: Stories Unplugged EP to Fuse:
"We have been getting requests for an acoustic release for a long time. We were just waiting for the right time and the right songs to accompany that vibe. With Duality: Stories Unplugged, we were able to accomplish that.
We didn't want to deliver an acoustic release that was us playing the same songs with the only difference being that it is on an acoustic guitar. We took new creative liberties with this. We reimagined the meanings to the songs and the overall feel in general. We are very proud of what we were able to accomplish on the EP. So allow us to unplug and tell you the stories of our duality."
