Independent rock band Kingdom Collapse is taking on a classic Saliva song for its latest single.
The band debuted its take on Saliva’s hit song ‘Always’ Nov. 6. The band also debuted the video for the cover the same day. The video features the band in a studio setting as it performs the song, which stays quite true to Saliva’s original song.
Kingdom Collapse front man Jonathan Norris talked briefly about the band’s decision to cover ‘Always’ in a prepared statement.
“‘Always’ was a favorite of mine since I was younger,” he said. “I talked with Paul Crosby (drummer of Saliva) and the band about releasing it, and they gave us their blessing. It is pretty surreal!”
Crosby confirmed Norris’ statements in his own comments
“Jonathan and the guys in Kingdom Collapse did an incredible job with ‘Always’,” said Crosby. “They’re one of rock’s next up and coming bands, and it’s awesome to see them cover one of our biggest songs” said Crosby.
‘Always’ is just the latest single from Kingdom Collapse. The band debuted its own original song ‘Uprise,’ in May. The song has proven hugely successful since its premiere.
Kingdom Collapse manager Aaron Smith recently talked about the success of ‘Uprise.’
“I’m very proud of what Jonathan and the band have accomplished,” said Smith. “We’ve all been working tirelessly over the past few years to build this, and it’s an incredible feeling to see how positively people are responding to ‘Uprise.’” This may be the world’s first mainstream taste of Kingdom Collapse, but the band has quietly amassed 4,000,000+ YouTube views and 2,000,000+ Spotify streams leading up to the release of ‘Uprise.’
Specifically speaking, ‘ Uprise’ most recently reached #39 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Top 40 Chart and #35 on the Mediabase Rock Top 40 chart. Additionally, the single reached the #1 most played song on SiriusXM Octane in July. It has also since been added to Spotify’s Rock Hard playlist and played on Music Choice.
The band debuted its most recent single, ‘Suffer‘ in July.
