Robotic Empire will release their second Nirvana tribute album, Whatever Nevermind, on April 18 in conjunction with Record Store Day. (Pre-order it now.) The release features contributions from La Dispute, Circa Survive, Touché Amoré, Nothing and many more.

Today, AP is bringing you Circa Survive’s cover of “Drain You,” which you can stream below. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts.

Circa guitarist Brendan Ekstrom says, “There are different ways to approach covering a band. For us, doing a Nirvana song takes us back to a very raw place that we were in when we were young and just falling in love with music. We didn't want to say 'here's what this song would've sounded like if Circa wrote it.’ It was way more fun for us to live in their energy and pay homage to their influence by just rocking the shit out of it and keeping it raw.”
