On their new record Maybe There’s No Heaven, Short Stack distill their sensational and storied career into 10 crunchy and instantly memorable bangers. After meeting in high school, Short Stack’s Shaun Diviney (vocals), Andy Clemmensen (bass) and Bradie Webb (drums) began band practice in a central coast garage, before their explosive debut album Stack Is The New Black dropped as the group hit the ripe old age of 20. Sweeping up an #1 ARIA Chart debut, a Rolling Stone cover, Platinum recognition and tens of thousands of tickets sold in its wake, Short Stack soared to incredible heights.

Over a decade on from their rise to stardom, the trio are reflecting on their fascinating journey – warts and all – on their fifth studio album. For all its epic highs and crushing lows, Short Stack are looking back on their career with gratitude for every experience and unswerving fan that’s lead them to this point.

A truly heroic pop-punk effort, Maybe There’s No Heaven is Shaun, Andy and Bradie and their faithful following’s victory moment. Now tighter as a unit and sounding more inspired musically than ever before, this is Short Stack taking back control of their careers and artistic freedom, and ultimately, delivering their greatest album to date to demonstrate. "There was a tension between the band that we wanted to be and the band that other people around us wanted to be,” says Shaun. Bradie chimes in that this time round feels like the group “finally have our hands on the steering wheel.”

It all came together after a 6-year hiatus, and a “was-never-meant-to-be” chance to record another album. Winding back the clock, Short Stack first announced their reunion (one that was supposed to be a tour-only venture) in early 2020 and saw their major capital city run cause a frenzied sell out. While it’s subsequently been rescheduled three times due to various lockdowns, the forced pause gave the trio the opportunity to explore other avenues, meet and sign with UNFD and buckle down to finally write their dream album without coercion or pressure to be anything but them.

After demoing the record in Bradie’s studio space, Short Stack then teamed up with Stevie Knight (Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly) and birthed the pop-punk firecracker Maybe There’s No Heaven. Harking to the band’s early heavy-tinged influences including Bring Me The Horizon, The Getaway Plan, Blink-182 and The Used, Maybe There’s No

Heaven is mature and tasteful, all the while youthful and fun. Short Stack’s sibling-like bond and synergy is on full display, while it’s capped off with emotionally charged lyrics that channel their career’s worth of overwhelming pop star-sensation status combined with haters, anxieties and major label battles into a blistering record.
