Goldfinger are internationally recognized as champions of punk and ska music. They recently embarked on a new music journey to bring fans The Goldfinger Christmas EP with a signature ska twist.
The band are teaming up with AP to premiere their new Christmas cover “The 12 Days Of Christmas.”
Lead vocalist John Feldmann has been interested in creating a project like this for quite some time.
“I love Christmas more than anything, so I made this Christmas EP because Christmas is the best” Feldmann says. “I play Christmas songs in June, so I figured I’d make this record for any other huge Christmas fans like myself. Plus, I eat more sugar than Will Ferrell in Elf.”
Feldmann’s love of the Christmas character is evident as he further details it on the Mike Herrera Podcast.
In it, he explained how he’s watched Elf 30 times this year. He also detailed how he went to breakfast and topped his pancakes with strawberry jam, powdered sugar and maple syrup. His friend told him, “Dude, you’re Will Ferrell in Elf. That’s who you are!”
“I always had this idea of doing ‘The 12 Days Of Christmas’ with each day a different style of music,” he says in the podcast. “Day one was pop punk, the second day is ska-punk…and the fifth day was death metal.”
The Goldfinger Christmas EP showcases four Christmas covers perfect for all punk and ska enthusiasts ready to get in the holiday spirit.
“I just think Goldfinger fans are going to be pumped because these are Goldfinger songs,” Feldmann says.
