Crown The Empire commented:
“We are excited to announce that we’ve recreated our song ‘Johnny’s Revenge‘ with guest features from 3 different bands: Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, Dave Stephens from We Came As Romans and Craig Owens from D.R.U.G.S.. All of these singers are a part of the era we grew up in and have played a huge role in helping our scene become what it is today.
To celebrate 10 years of our album ‘The Fallout’, we wanted to do something special for the people who’ve stuck with us over the past decade. One of the songs our fans always gravitated towards was ‘Johnny’s Revenge‘, a theatrical piece that’s part of a trilogy we created over the span of 3 albums. We can’t wait for everyone to hear this new version!”
Crown The Empire have recruited Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills), Dave Stephens (We Came As Romans), and Craig Owens (D.R.U.G.S.) for a new version of their song “Johnny’s Revenge.” The updated take on the track will be released on June 23. This news comes as the band are continuing to celebrate the 10th anniversary of “The Fallout.”
While She Sleeps have teamed up with Enter Shikari’s Rou Reynolds for a new version of their song “Systematic.” This track is from the special edition of the band’s latest album “Sleeps Society,” which will be released on July 8.
Brand Of Sacrifice have joined forces with Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita for a new version of their song “Demon King.” Brand Of Sacrifice’s Kyle Anderson commented:
“We’re long-time fans of Ryo‘s work and I knew we had to team up together for this track. Ryo did a lot of new things on this tune he hasn’t done before on any of his other songs, and it’s incredibly heavy. His vocals have always been extremely aggressive and energetic, and I’m so excited for BOS fans to hear this new spin on ‘Demon King‘.”
Asking Alexandria have joined forces with Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) for a new version of their song “Faded Out.” You can find an official video for that track below:
Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce commented:
“‘Faded Out‘ is just one of those songs with an infectious energy and groove! I remember it coming together in the studio and thinking ‘I can’t wait to play this live.’ Fast forward a couple of months and I’m being told that Sharon of Within Temptation wants to sing on the song with us, and the level of excitement and nostalgia running through my body was immeasurable!
When I was 14 or 15 years old, I waited in line at Virgin Megastore to meet Within Temptation at a signing and I handed Sharon a demo of my band. Adding Sharon‘s vocals to the song and teaming up with Within Temptation is a huge honor for us and it also brings a whole new dimension to the song. I can’t wait for the fans to hear this collaboration and I can’t wait for it to be featured in ‘The Retaliators’ movie!”
Sharon den Adel added:
“We’ve been blasting metalcore playlists through our speakers to gain a bit of fresh inspiration for our side, and Asking Alexandria is amongst the top bands we have been spinning over the past years. Their songs are heavy and melodic at the same time, therefore it was a no-brainer when they asked us to join them on ‘Faded Out‘! We are evenly honored to be a part of this amazing song and we hope everyone will love it as much as we do! Enjoy!”
We Came As Romans have joined forces with Brand Of Sacrifice for a reimagined version of “Darkbloom.” You can stream that track below:
We Came As Romans commented:
“We’ve been fans of Brand of Sacrifice for a minute – and when we had the idea to do a reimagined version of Darkbloom, they were the first people to come to mind. A lot of bands have done incredible re-releases or reimagined versions of songs, and those versions are usually stripped down and showcase a softer side. We wanted to do the exact opposite – to team up with some powerhouses in the deathcore scene, and release something heavy, fast paced and aggressive. It’s been a blast working with the BOS guys, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.”
Brand of Sacrifice added:
“When WCAR approached us to rewrite this track with them, we were excited to be able to work with a band that has done so much for metalcore as a whole. This reimagined version of Darkbloom is full of aggression and energy, and combines all of the elements that make both of our bands special with some unexpected surprises along the way. I’m super stoked that we have the opportunity to innovate and bridge the gap between two very different sub genres, and do something insane that really hasn’t been done all that often in metal.”
Hyro The Hero has teamed up with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor for a new version of “Kids Against The Monsters.“ You can check that out below. The song serves as the title track of Hyro’s new EP, which is available now.
“Working with Corey Taylor was absolutely incredible. When I first heard him sing the words of the chorus we created, I got chills. ‘Kids Against The Monsters‘ is about the problems we deal with from generation to generation. This generation is trying to find peace and fix past mistakes. When you press play and listen to my music, I want you to feel the positivity and love.”
“It’s always nice to collaborate with up-and-coming talent, especially when you’re a genuine fan. I was stoked to hop on this song with Hyro The Hero. He embodies what a true artist is meant to do: make you feel something. This song is a great reminder that we’re stronger together when facing our demons.”
