Disciples of Verity is taking X Ambassadors’ hit song ‘Unsteady.’
The band debuted the video for its cover of the song Friday through Loudwire. While DOV’s cover stays largely true to its source material, the heavy guitars and drums add a new edge to the song, giving it a new identity that is just as interesting as the original composition from X Ambassadors.
Directed by Dale “Rage” Resteghini an produced by Kim Resteghini, the video features the band performing its cover of ‘Unsteady’ “in a remote area of New York state.
“It was an extreme honor rockin’ on set with exciting new band D.O.V. and their iconic front man Corey Glover,” said Dale. “The whole band brought their friends and family and they enjoyed all the high wattage and fire as the band delivered an incredible visceral performance!”
Drummer Corey Pierce expanded on Resteghini’s statement with his own thoughts.
“It was an incredible day in a life that has had many, many incredible days,” said Pierce. “We shot an amazing video with an incredible look built by the efforts of a team full of highly motivated and energized people. The finished product is way beyond the expectations any of us had. We could not have asked for a better crew, experience and finished product.”
The debut of DOV’s cover of ‘Unsteady’ and its video comes more than a month after the band debuted the video for its then latest single ‘The Flow.’
The song is featured on the band’s forthcoming debut album Pragmatic Sanction, which is scheduled for release Aug. 7 through The Label Group and INgrooves. Pre-orders for the album are open now.
The album’s third single, it comes more than five months after the band debuted the album’s second single, ‘Lying To Myself.’ That song featured a guest appearance by Phil Demmel (BPMD, ex-Machine Head, Vio-lence) on guitar.
The band debuted the album’s lead single ‘Worthy’ last year through a partnership with Revolver magazine. The song featured a guest appearance by Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore) on guitar.
‘The Flow’ features a guest appearance by Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose, who said he was excited to be included in the song.
“Any time you get an opportunity to track music with a legend, you jump,” he said. “The track f’n rips. Corey sounds better than ever.”
Rose’s addition to the song, coupled with the band’s members — Corey Glover (Living Colour, Bowie Experience), George Pond (ex-Negative Sky), Dannny Puma (Negative Sky), Corey Pierce (Ex-God Forbid) and Mark Monjoy (Sekond Skyn) — the song bears those hints of a Sevendust influence.
The song’s lyrical theme is heavy in its own right, according to a statement from Glover.
“The idea that the world isn’t giving you what you deserve is universal,” Glover said. “Given the unrest in the world, today it’s more than an idea.”
‘The Flow’ is available to stream and download here.
