Liv “Sin” Jagrell (Sister Sin) is streaming her cover of Danzig’s “Devil’s Plaything.” The track will be featured on the new vinyl-only EP “Inverted,” which is set to be released on May 25.

Comeback Kid will be releasing a cover of Midnight Oil‘s “Beds Are Burning,” along with a previously unreleased track titled “Little Soldier“ on May 4. The tracks will be available digitally and as a limited edition 7″. Andrew Neufeld commented on the cover:
“A while back I randomly saw the video for the song ‘Beds Are Burning‘. I had heard it in passing many times before but the video intrigued me at that particular time. After finding out that it was a protest song about giving back lands to an indigenous group in Australia, it resonated with me because of the current situation our Canadian government has with its indigenous people.”
