August Burns Red Cover Wham!’s “Last Christmas”

August Burns Red have premiered their cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas.” You can check that out below:

Dustin Davidson commented:

“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. When I decided to cover ‘Last Christmas‘ I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. I didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.”

August Burns Red’s Cover Of “Carol Of The Bells” Is Being Played At A Disney Resort

A Disney resort is apparently rocking August Burns Red’s cover of “Carol Of The Bells” as a backing track for a marching band. That song appears on the band’s 2012 holiday release, “August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album.” It is worth noting that the band tagged Disney World in the below tweet, but a comment suggests that the track is actually being played at Disneyland’s California Adventure.
