Volume Dois (Volume Two) is the ninth studio album released by the Brazilian rock band Titãs. Following the success of the last album, Acústico MTV, Volume Dois features unplugged arrangements of previously recorded Titãs' songs, along with some new ones.[3] Once again, an orchestra was called to record the album. It is one of their most successful albums, having sold more than 1 million copies to date as of 2015.[4]

Background and production[edit]

By the time of the album release, members Tony Bellotto (acoustic and electric guitarist) and Paulo Miklos (vocalist and saxophonist) commented that the band did not want to give in to electronic sounds: "We are a stage band, we like to play. It doesn't make sense, in a numerous band, to wait for the computer sequence before coming in with the guitars. This happened around the times of Õ Blésq Blom (...) Acoustic is the valuing of melodies, the electronic 'thing' more disturbed us than helped us".[5]

The hit "Sonífera Ilha" was chosen as the opening track for being "emblematic. Cheesy, trying to be pop, inventive", according to Bellotto.[5]

Release and marketing[edit]

the album was introduced to the press in a press conference hosted at restaurant Terraço Itália, atop Edifício Itália.[5] A promotional tour succeeded, with its shows divided into three parts: one electroacoustic, one acoustic and one more rock-oriented, containing old hits not used in the album.[1]
