Matt Mays Announces Upcoming Acoustic Album ‘Twice Upon a Hell of a Time…’

Listen to 'Ola Volo' acoustic

Nova Scotia-raised singer-songwriter Matt Mays returned last year with his first new full-length record since 2012’s Coyote. Mays is set to follow-up Once Upon a Hell of a Time… with a full acoustic re-imagining, aptly titled Twice Upon a Hell of a Time…

Mays shared the forthcoming record’s first single, an acoustic version of “Ola Volo,” inspired by a Vancouver-based mural artist of the same name who also created the original album art for both records. Twice Upon a Hell of a Time… arrives via Sonic Records & Warner Music Canada on October 19, 2018.

Listen to “Ola Volo (Acoustic)” below.

Once Upon a Hell of a Time… is a Saturday night record,” Mays said in a release. “This version is for the hangover on Sunday.”

Twice Upon a Hell of a Time… will be available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
