Short Stack drop video for powerful new single ‘Live4’

Also announcing an intimate one-off show in Melbourne

Short Stack are back with an official music video for their new single, ‘Live4’.

A shadowy track packed with choral runs that sees the punk trio take a heavier direction, ‘Live4’ was, according to Short Stack frontman Shaun Diviney in a press release, the first song the band wrote when they returned to writing sessions together.

“‘Live4’ is song is about celebrating being the underdog,” Diviney explained. “We wanted a huge, anthemic song that would feel massive live.


“Choirs is something we’ve never done before, but we really wanted the chorus to explode.”

In the official music video, Short Stack perform the song in dark city streets, panning back and forth between pensive shots of its members as the chorus builds.

Following the March release of their first song in six years, ‘Burn You Down’, ‘Live4’ is the second offering from the outfit since their reformation last year.

To celebrate ‘Live4’, Short Stack have revealed they will play an intimate one-off show at Melbourne’s The Espy on Friday June 4, with tickets on sale from Friday (April 30) at 10am AEST and special guests to be announced closer to the show.
