Having trouble getting into the holiday spirit? August Burns Red have you covered. The band just released their cover of “Last Christmas,” and it’s bound to get you dancing (or moshing) around the tree in no time.
Give it a listen below!
“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic and shredtastic,” bassist Dustin Davidson says.
“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.”
Give “Last Christmas” a listen below:
The song will be available for purchase at 9 p.m. PST, or midnight EST, here.
Last year, the group released a rendition of “What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)”—and we already can't wait to see the song they decide to cover next year!
