Head to the replies to see the videos of our first ever Backstage Sessions with Good Old War. Not content to do just two songs (one of our users' choosing), the guys even threw in another one for good measure. Click through to see stripped down acoustic versions of "Looking for Shelter," "Maybe Mine," and a new one named "My Own Sinking Ship."
Remember to head over here and vote what song you would like to see Good Old War perform acoustic for ap.net this week. As of now, "Looking for Shelter" is edging out "Coney Island" so whether you agree or disagree, make sure your vote is heard.
Next week, we will be launching a new (hopefully regular) feature we will be calling Backstage Sessions. Nothing fancy - just a Flip camcorder recording talented bands doing acoustic or a capella versions of songs. Good Old War will be our first performer, playing a new song for us in addition to one of your choosing. So head over here and vote for what you want to hear.
Update: The chat is now over. Thanks to the Good Old War guys for taking the time to talk with us. If you haven't already, pick up Only Way to Be Alonehere - one of the best records of 2008, no doubt.
Good Old War will be chatting in this thread at approximately 8PM EST under the names goodoldgoodwin (Keith), goodoldtim (Tim), and goodolddan (Dan). Drop in and say hello, talk about the retro radness that is Only Way to Be Alone, or anything else you can think of.
Good Old War's Only Way To Be Alone is back on iTunes after having been removed due to an incomplete track. For those that downloaded the incomplete version, a solution will be announced in the next two days. This effervescent gem comes highly recommended by AbsolutePunk, don't miss it.
Good Old War will release Only Way to Be Alone on August 29th.
