Slaves On Dope’s Jason Rockman and Kevin Jardine have decided to launch a new quarantine covers project called The Kings Of Quarantine. The band’s first single, a cover of Faith No More’s “We Care A Lot,“ features the following artists: Frank Bello (Anthrax), Ray Luzier (Korn), Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), Ivan Doruschuk (Men Without Hats), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused), Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, etc.), Kevin Sharp (ex-Brutal Truth, etc.), Darryl McDaniels (Run-D.M.C.), Esoteric (Czarface), Richard Patrick (Filter), and Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace). Faith No More’s Billy Gould also makes an appearance in the video as well.

Rockman said the following:

“Kevin and I have always been massive fans of Faith No More and having the opportunity to cover one of their songs with such great company has been a dream come true. We are so grateful to all the musicians involved that accepted our invitation.”

McDaniels added:

“We did this because we care a lot about everyone! Especially those who put their lives on the line to make sure we are ok!”

Patrick also commented:

“I care a lot about being part of this amazing cover. It’s an honor and a privilege. To be rubbing elbows with the likes of these gentlemen makes me feel very proud.”

The track can be purchased on Bandcamp with all the proceeds set to go towards Roadie Relief.

Anthrax, Volbeat, & Suicidal Tendencies Members Join Forces With D.M.C. For RUN-D.M.C. Medley

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax) and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) recently joined forces with Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels for a RUN-D.M.C. medley. You can see footage of that below. The track is also available to download via Bandcamp with proceeds set to go towards MusicUnites.org.

Benante commented:

“I always wanted to do a medley of RUN DMC songs, so back in March I decided to put an arrangement together and asked these amazing people to be a part of it.

How can you do a RUN DMC medley without the KING of ROCK- Darryl McDaniels DMC. I have been a RUN DMC fan from back when I first heard “It’s Like That/Sucker MCs” they had my attention immediately! It’s no secret that our “I’m the Man” song was inspired by RUN DMC and the Beastie boys…that’s how much we loved them.

I asked RA once again because he has the groove and creativity to adapt to any song. I love how he placed a familiar line at the end of the song that Just fit so well. I asked Rob Caggiano because I always loved his style.

I love the way he attacks his guitar and plays the tastiest shit. He throws this great Black metal riff in here that raises the tune to another level. We all came together to create this piece of music that makes US move.

I hope it YOU move! Maybe it inspires you to make music, play your instrument, write lyrics…”
