If you think your funny zoom backgrounds are the shit, move over, because August Burns Red have taken quarantine conferences to the next level by inviting Silverstein frontman Shane Told online for a jam/cover of NOFX‘s ‘Linoleum‘ and it rips hard!
The idea came about when both bands toured as JB Brubaker explained:
“We busted it out on tour periodically over the years. This past summer, while touring with Silverstein, we played it semi-regularly with Shane Told handling the vocals. While we were all stuck at home in isolation, we thought it would be fun to put together a quarantine version of ‘Linoleum’ that featured Shane. We each recorded our own parts at home and our sound engineer Chris Pollock mixed the audio together. Then, we had our touring photographer, Ray Duker, edit all the videos together. This was a fun project for us to put together, and we hope you enjoy it.”
It’s great to see bands using their imaginations during this time to create memorable content we’ll be loving and looking back on in years to come and this is another example of some of the best in the business showing us what they can do!
If you missed it a while back we had Shane on our Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall podcast chatting all about Silverstein‘s UNIFY 2020 appearance and their new album once you watch the song below, go check that out here!
