Firstborne (Ex-Lamb Of God, Ex-Megadeth, Etc.) Release Cover Of Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)”

Firstborne (ex-Lamb Of God/Megadeth, etc.) have released a cover of Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart).” Drummer Chris Adler commented:

“It’s hard to not appreciate Journey. As a musician I’ve always greatly appreciated their individual talents that combined into something so contagious. I’ve always wanted to cover a Journey song and always thought of ‘Separate Ways‘ as their ‘heaviest.’ The problem was always the same. No one can sing it. When I met and performed with Girish across India I knew I’d met one of very few people in the world that could take this on and make it his own. That’s the goal of the group. We can do anything — let’s have fun and share.”

Firstborne (Ex-Lamb Of God, Ex-Megadeth, Etc.) Premiere “Cut The Strings” Lyric Video

Firstborne (ex-Lamb Of God/Megadeth, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their new single “Cut The Strings.“ Vocalist Girish Pradhan commented:

“Every time there’s a force that challenges the most fundamental right of a human being — freedom — music has always served as the voice of the common person. The special existence of humans in the world has music right in the heart of it.”

Firstborne (Ex-Lamb Of God, Ex-Megadeth, Etc.) Premiere “Roll The Dice” Lyric Video

Firstborne (ex-Lamb Of God/Megadeth, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their song “Roll The Dice.“ This track is from the band’s self-titled EP, which was released in June. Drummer Chris Adler commented:

“‘Roll The Dice‘ shows Firstborne turning another unexpected turn musically that I could not have done before. It’s the perfect song to drive fast with the windows down air drumming on your wheel. And somewhat ironically, it speaks to how those memorable moments can turn to tragedy. We only go around this thing once and as Elvis Costello and, bizarrely, The Meatmen best said it back in the day, ‘Accidents will happen, you don’t know when, accidents are waiting around the bend.’ Enjoy what you have left.”
