Unwritten Law Stream New Song “Oblivion”

Formed in the early 90s, the rock/punk/alternative quartet Unwritten Law have gone on to release multi-platinum records, and are now back with their 8th studio album, Acoustic, which will be released on the 1st April through Cyber Tracks.

The band have now unveiled the second single, “Oblivion,” which can be heard below.

“‘Oblivion’ was originally written acoustically, but we translated it to distortion for ‘The Hit List’” says vocalist, Scott Russo. “This version gives a chance to hear what I was really saying, as it is stripped and naked. In choosing songs for this record, I wanted to pick songs with my favorite lyrics, because I felt they would be more exposed.”

Acoustic is a masterful 13 ­track record filled with newly re-­recorded Unwritten Law hits from Unwritten Law, Elva, Here’s To The Mourning, Swan, and The Hit List into flawless acoustic renditions. The emotionally rich album will also feature two brand new tracks including “Huartbreaker” a cover originally performed by John Legend and MSTRKRFT and “Belongs To You,” written by Scott Russo. The album features Scott Russo (Vocals/Guitar), Chris Lewis (Guitar, currently in Fenix TX), Jonny Grill (Bass), and original drummer Wade Youman; produced by Jim Perkins and Scott Russo, Additional production by Chris Lewis and Joe Marlett, Mixed by Joe Marlett, and Mastered by Tom Baker of Baker Mastering.
