Bayside have announced a covers EP to be released on the band's very own label, Gumshoe Records. Titled Covers – Volume 1, the EP is a fully DIY effort, being funded, released and shipped by the band. It also marks the return of Shep Goodman as producer (2005 self-titled album as well as 2007’s The Walking Wounded).

“We are locking in a new label right now and intend to start writing a new album in January. However we wanted to put out something to tide over our fans until we can deliver another album. We have become known for doing cover songs during our live shows and doing a covers EP is a blast for us. However these aren’t standard covers that people in our scene would think that we would do. These are songs that we grew up on and would love to share the influence to a new generation who may not know them,” said Raneri.

Fans can expect to see classic artists like Van Morrison, The Ronettes, Del Shannon, Elvis Costello and Billy Joel covered.

Pre-order bundles will go up October 8 on their official site.
