Today, Minneapolis-based alt-rock trio and Big Loud Rock-signees Yam Haus have released the acoustic version of their latest acclaimed single, “Sandcastle.”

“Sandcastle” itself is a punch and jangly pop-punk metaphor for life that examines just how frail and unexpected our existence here can really be. It is the second song to be released from Yam Haus since signing to Big Loud Rock and is expected to appear on their new EP, which is set for release this fall.

“We build up our lives meticulously, and the next moment, a breaker rolls in and washes it away,” said frontman Lars Pruitt. “It’s kind of exciting, kind of exhausting, kind of terrifying, beautiful, horrible, tragic, almost funny in a sad way. It actually feels really good to let go of what you can’t control, and acknowledge the complete frailty of our little lives. I think there’s some really good stuff on the other side of that.”

Watch the stripped-down version of “Sandcastle” below.

Yam Haus also has a number of appearances set for this summer, fall, and winter.

On Friday, July 14th, the band will perform as part of the inaugural TC Summer Fest at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota supporting The Killers. Kicking off on October 6 at Hi-Fi in Indianapolis, Indiana, the band’s forthcoming North American headline tour will visit additional markets across the U.S. and Canada and culminate in an appearance at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Illinois on November 18th.
