Two-thirds of the band aren’t even out of their teens, and already Short Stack have a sold-out tour and a number two ARIA smash single, “Sway Sway Baby,” under their belt. If you missed out on tickets last time, you’ll be thrilled to know the lads are hitting the road in December.
The band’s third national tour is in support of their long awaited album, Stack is the New Black, which hits stores on August 14. The band worked on the album in between HSC exams and major national tours with The Veronicas, Simple Plan, and Good Charlotte.
“We never thought we had any good songs until we got signed and people were like, ‘These are actually quite good’,” lead vocalist and guitarist Shaun Diviney said. “For us, more than anything the album is a timeline because we have songs on there that were written when we first started out then songs we wrote a week before the album was recorded. It’s really cool to see how we’ve progressed as a band, and how we’ve grown up.”
The album is an eclectic mix, with everything from epic ballads to frenetic electro-tinged rock.
“It’s got a song on there for everyone depending on what genre you like,” said the band’s bassist, Andy Clemmensen. “When you listen to some albums, you can only listen halfway through before you get over hearing their voice or hearing the same sounds but I think ours you can listen to the whole way through because it changes up so much.”
