Happy Wednesday, comrades! Another super rad Dying Scene exclusive for your eyeballs today. It comes to us from Atlanta-based punks The Carolyn. It’s for a track from the band’s new EP, Harmful History, which is due out this coming Friday (6/9 – nice) on 59x Records and it’s a track that should sound familiar especially if you’re, like some of us, “of a certain age.” Yes, it’s a cover of none other than The Cranberries classic “Salvation,” which, for my money, is the best Cranberries song that you’re allowed to cover; “Zombie” is off-limits because it’s perfect and because, if you’re a dude, you’re going to get it wrong. ANYWAY, here’s what the band had to say about covering the track:
“We always enjoy capturing a bunch of b roll and tour happenings when possible, and we came back from our last European tour with a ton. Recording this cover was some of the most fun we’ve ever had in the studio, and it made sense for us to capture that.”
