Independent emo-core band Rough Dreams debuted the second single from its forthcoming EP this week.
The band debuted its cover of Grade’s song ‘Termites Hollow‘ Thursday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming covers EP From the Graves of Better Days, which is scheduled for release Feb. 5 through 59X Records. The debut of the band’s cover of ‘Termites Hollow’ follows that of the band’s cover of Thrice’s ‘The Artist in the Ambulance‘ last month.
Front man Jake Jones discussed the inclusion of ‘Termites Hollow’ to its new EP in a recent interview.
“When we were picking songs to cover for our covers EP, I knew that there needed to be at least one seemingly obscure song on the record,” he said. “I pitched “Termites Hollow” by Grade to the band because they are one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to songwriting. The guys weren’t familiar with the band, but I played them the track, and everyone agreed that it’s a killer song and needed a new life in new times.”
“It was probably one of the most fun tracks to record especially after [guitarist] Chris [Suggs] suggested throwing in the acoustic guitar in the bridge,” added Jones. “However, the vocals on this song were quite taxing and both Chris and I completely blew out our voices while tracking.”
From the Graves of Betrer Days is just one of the records that Rough Dreams has planned for release this year. The band also has plans to release a new album this year. more information on that record is available along with all of Rough Dreams’ latest news at:
