The Venetia Fair to release covers EP

The Venetia Fair have announced a new covers EP due out December 24th. Here’s what singer Benny Santoro had to say about the release:

“We said we’d cover anything they wanted and we got 6 very different songs from different genres and different eras in music, each with their own challenges. We had no intention of simply playing these songs as they were originally played (especially Bohemian Rhapsody… we didn’t wanna go anywhere near that song!) so we took our time and completely rebuilt them from the ground up to make sure we made them our own. Some of the songs we loved and had to figure out how to tweak them without totally ruining them and some of the songs we hated and had to figure out how to make them good, but I believe we rose to the challenge and, with the help of our Kickstarter backers, put together a very strange and very cool little cover EP. We definitely trashed some classic tunes, but it’s all very tongue-in-cheek since we would never take a cover song seriously ’cause it’s basically just doing karaoke…”
