Northlane release Tame Impala cover ahead of Node Australian Tour.

The Northlane boys have had quite the busy year since releasing their latest album Node featuring new front-man Marcus Bridge and touring what seems to be absolutely everywhere across the world. Next week they officially kick off their first headlining tour in 18 months on The Node Australian Tour with August Burns Red, Like Moths to Flames, Buried in Verona and Ocean Grove, but before then they’ve offered fans the chance to see them tackling Tame Impala‘s “Let It Happen“.

The song was recorded during their recent stint in Europe which not only saw the boys selling out four shows (including Paris and Germany) but also visiting the renowned BBC Maida Vale Studios to record a live set. These famous studios have featured many great artists in the past such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie and now Northlane can add their names to the likes of these incredibly musicians.

Guitarist Josh Smith explains:

“We’d been wanting to do a cover for quite some time but because we all listen to fairly different music, we could never come to any sort of conclusion about what artist or song to choose when the conversation came up. Then one day Jon came to a rehearsal with the first minute of this as a rough demo on his phone to show us and it clicked. Tame Impala might seem an odd choice for a cover from us, but it’s a band that has a fairly similar writing process, and a few common threads within their music and lyrics. 

We were planning to record this cover during our live session at BBC Maida Vale the day of our show in London, UK earlier this month. Unfortunately we ran out of time quickly in the studio as we had to head out early to play the show. We’d already worked on developing this song and rehearsing it and didn’t want that to go to waste, so we chose to do our best to polish up the demo on a laptop while we’re out here on the road in Europe. After this ordeal we’re glad this cut can finally see the light of day, enjoy!”

Check out the song below and don’t forget to grab yourself a ticket to check out the guys when they hit the road across the country next week. If you’ve missed out on tickets for your closest gig, don’t fret, you’ll still be able to catch Northlane at Soundwave Festival next year.
