August Burns Red Debut Cover Of Wham!’s “Last Christmas”

August Burns Red carry on with their holiday tradition posting the below cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas”. Check it out:

Says bassist Dustin Davidson of the song:

“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. When I decided to cover ‘Last Christmas‘ I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. I didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.”

Pierce The Veil Debuts New Video “Today I Saw The Whole World”

Pierce The Veil debuts a video for its single “Today I Saw The Whole World”. Dan Fusselman (August Burns Red, Neck Deep) directed the video.

Says vocalist Vic Fuentes the following of it:

“I grew up watching massive amounts of MTV music videos throughout the 90’s. I would record all of my favorites on VHS tape, watching them over and over until the tape wore out. Our new video was inspired by some of these artists that I loved back then like the Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill and Marilyn Manson. We wanted to use this 90’s look to visually express the lyrics and fury inside of the song.”
