Toothgrinder Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”

Toothgrinder have released a cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain.“ You can check that out below:

The band said the following:

“As a child, my father’s three favorite groups were CSNY, Fleetwood Mac and The Allman Brothers. I grew accustomed to southern rock from an early age. As a lyricist, I subconsciously write in that frame of mind. I LOVE a good story written through song. Fleetwood Mac in particular has always held a special place in my heart.

During the making of Phantom Amour I needed a break from the recording process to go clear my head. I cruised down to Luray, Virginia through the skyline drive to get some perspective on what I was doing. I parked myself on a stool at an Irish pub somewhere in town. Half in the bag, I listened to Fleetwood Mac’s, “The Chain”.

I than began writing the lyrics to our ballad “Jubilee”. There is something about associating music with my surrounding’s that has always captivated me. Music to me has always seemed like a fantastical theme song to a particular point in time. I wanted to pay homage to the legend’s that helped me write my favorite and most personal song yet.

Considering the impact Fleetwood Mac had on the Phantom Amour writing process, The Chain was the obvious choice. It has this beautiful twang that is so far from anything we have ever done, that I wanted to capture that as well as we could. I hope we did it justice, and without a doubt I am extremely grateful we had an opportunity to do something like this. Gratitude is everything.”

Toothgrinder Premiere “Couer D’Alene” Music Video

Toothgrinder have premiered a new video for their song “Couer D’Alene,” via Decibel. This song is from the band’s latest album, “Nocturnal Masquerade,” which is available now.

Justin Matthews said the following:

“Sonically, ‘Coeur D’Alene‘ is one of the more fun songs on the record. The bouncy groove and tempo keeps all of us moving through out its duration. We have always tried to keep this bit in our live set for those reasons alone. Lyrically it helped develop the vibe for the rest of the record. The song questions wanderlust, stability and independence. These, all of which are reoccurring themes on the record.”

The band said the following about the song:

“‘Diamonds For Gold‘ is one of those songs on the album that makes us proud that we have decided to take a leap into the unknown. The track is a perfect introduction to the more ethereal side of Toothgrinder. It really sets the mood for the more dynamic tonal pieces of the record. A break from the chaos is exactly what Nocturnal Masquerade has called for. We had a lot of fun watching the song come together and hope that translates to the outside listener.”
