Shame

Album: Full Circle (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • There are two acoustic tracks on Full Circle, this song and "37 Stitches." Guitarist C.J. Pierce told Ultimate Guitar about recording of these two songs: "Those were done in the studio. We had played around with '37 Stitches' and with 'Shame.' When we had some time off and were actually rehearsing for our tour at our buddy's house. We recorded those acoustic and had fun with it because he had a studio in his house. We had recorded 'Shame' and '37 Stitches' without the intention of ever really doing anything with them. 'Shame' is completely different than the original song. It's nothing like it, which is fun. It kind of has the rock acoustic vibe like bands have done in the past. Everybody references Alice In Chains because they're one of the most noted for doing acoustic stuff. I really liked the way it shaped up."
