Twice Upon a Hell of a Time…

August 31st, 2018

A year after the release of Once Upon a Hell of a Time…, Matt Mays returns with its acoustic companion piece, Twice Upon a Hell of a Time… The full re-imagining of the rock record is available October 19, 2018.

Much like the lead single “Ola Volo,” which you can hear on your platform of choice HERE, all the tracks on Twice Upon a Hell of a Time… are presented in stark, stripped-down contrast to its predecessors.

Once Upon a Hell of a Time… is a Saturday night record,” says Matt. “This version is for the hangover on Sunday.”
