Down Plan On Recording A Covers Album!

January 28, 2021

There’s something about a good cover song, right? Just heard about an interview with Down drummer Jimmy Bower (talking to Bravewords) where he said you can expect a covers album from the band!

Bower said, “We’re supposed to do a covers record pretty soon, that’s the next thing. We haven’t figured out exactly when we’re going to do it, or completely what songs yet … it’s just been an idea we’ve had forever. I know that’s in the works. Down was scheduled to play some festival shows last summer in Europe, and they got cancelled. I think we’re booked again this summer, but it just depends you know.”

And how will Down decide which songs to cover? “I’m sure we have to collectively agree. There’s already been a bunch of songs thrown out, some really cool ones … There’s definitely been some weird ones that I was like, ‘Wow, that would be killer!’ It’s going to be fun to do, to put our own take on ‘em. They’re not going to sound exactly like [you’d think]. We’ll put the Down take on it.”

No words on when this covers album will see the light of day, but it’s still exciting nonetheless!

Which song do you think they should cover?

What’s the best rock cover song you can think of? Check out Seether’s cover of WHAM!’s “Careless Whisper”. This is how it’s done.
