The Sword’s Kyle Shutt has put together a new album paying tribute to Pink Floyd‘s “The Dark Side Of The Moon.” The effort, which also features his bandmates from The Sword, Bryan Richie and Santiago Vela III, along with Alex Marrero (Brownout, Brown Sabbath), Jason Grey (Black Joe Lewis) and Joe Cornetti (Croy & The Boys), will be released on August 4 under the name Doom Side Of The Moon. You can preorder it HERE and listen to a cover of “Money” below:
“The idea came to me after getting baked and wanting to hear a heavy version of ‘Time‘. I thought, why not just cover the whole album? After sitting down and working out some loose concepts, the arrangement for ‘Money‘ materialized and I realized that I could totally do this if I assembled the right band. It felt a little strange messing with someone’s legacy, but I’m treating it as a celebration of one of the greatest bands to ever rock, a party that everyone is invited to.”
Shutt plans to perform the effort in full at Emo’s in Austin, TX on August 5.
