Short Stack are one of those Aussie bands that you mention and unlock a core memory. Whether it be their ultra-catchy tunes or their time-stamped emo’ hair… you remember them. I was keen to catch up with frontman/ guitarist Shaun Diviney to see what’s been happening in the world of Short Stack and what they are looking forward to.
Starting off this week, they are taking off on their ‘Regional(ish) Tour’ with Hevenshe and The Beautiful Monument. They’ve got plenty of new stops on the bill and are returning back to towns they haven’t visited in 10 years. Not long after returning home from their tour they will be playing Good Things 2023 alongside some huge names to which Shaun joked about being the representation for ‘Aussie heavy music’ and Limp Bizkit obviously looking forward to seeing/ watching Short Stack.
All jokes aside these fellas are ready to hit the stage with our favourite songs from Stack is the New Black to now and will be awesome to watch.
Speaking of Stack is the New Black, recently the boys released limited edition vinyl albums to celebrate the album that took Short Stack straight to number #1 on the ARIA charts. Shaun reflected on what it was like to have that experience and release an album with some of the songs written in their high school days. ‘We had such minimal expectations, and it’s set up everything we have done since’, he also joked, ‘It must have been a shit week on the charts’, which gave me a good laugh.
After talking about the early days of their careers we delved into what the boys have been up to and spoke about their new release Shotgun Wedding which is an upbeat pop-punk anthem and a taste of what’s to come from Short Stack.
Whether an album is on the horizon or not can be left up to speculation but what I can confirm is they are making music that makes them happy and is fun to play live.
There’s plenty more that we covered along the way, like whether they will revive their iconic hair and eyeliner for Halloween this year, sharing their musical life with their kiddos, their favourite songs to play and selling out their comeback tour.
Be sure to check out Short Stack on their Regional(ish) Tour or Good Things later this year at a location near you!
