Taking inspiration from MTV’s “Unplugged”-series from the 90’s, Haunt has announced a new acoustic album, Unplugged Vol.1, due to be released via Iron Grip and Church Recordings next Friday, November 12th. For a preview of this record, the first single, “Beautiful Distraction”, can be streamed now at: – where Unplugged Vol.1 can also be pre-ordered in the following versions:

–green vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–red vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–black vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–CD (limited to 1000 copies)

–cassette (limited to 50 copies)


During the pandemic, Haunt’s main-man Trevor William Church wondered what it would be like if suddenly there was no more electricity – and, what Haunt would sound like if he was forced to change his vision. Church then got a hand-me-down acoustic guitar from his dad, and he quickly realized there was something more to this idea: he started reimagining songs from his previous records, using minimalist production and instruments that can only be played without electricity. The resulting album – Unplugged Vol.1 – features the following 8 newly recorded, acoustic tracks:
