Scott Stapp (Creed) has premiered a lyric video for his song “Survivor.” This track is from his latest solo album “The Space Between The Shadows.”
“‘Survivor’ is about a mindset when facing a challenge or adversity. Believing you will overcome and affirming you are a survivor, even in the midst of crisis. Positive affirmation, self-realization, speaking and believing things into reality. Having a survivor mindset during a crisis helps give you strength to keep fighting, enduring, maintaining courage and continuing to do what you have to do to make it to the other side, to overcome, to win, to survive.
He also added:
“To me, all survivors are heroes. If you’re working each day to overcome through the sheer force of faith, will, and strength, then you’re a hero. A survivor.”
New Found Glory have shared a new video for their cover of Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger” from “Rocky III.” This track will be featured on the band’s “From The Screen To Your Stereo 3” release, which will be available on May 3.
Devil You Know are streaming their cover of Survivor’s “Eye Of The Tiger,” via Billboard. This cover will be featured as a bonus track on the band’s new album, They Bleed Red, which will be released on November 06.
John Sankey said the following about the cover:
“One day when we were in the studio working on our new album, They Bleed Red, Howard Jones (vocals) turned up in a shower robe and started shadow boxing in the vocal booth while doing his best Rocky Balboa impersonation. It was so impressive that we immediately knew we had to do a cover of the infamous Rocky soundtrack theme. ‘Eye Of The Tiger‘. We had already been discussing the possibility of recording a cover, but had no idea what song we would do. In that moment when Hojo literally transformed himself into the Italian Stallion right in front of our very eyes we knew it was the perfect choice!
Our biggest challenge would be adapting the original song into our own style, so we decided each of us must take on the persona of a different cast member to best capture the performance necessary to do such an iconic song justice. Howard lived and breathed the role of Rocky for a full week, Francesco Artusato [guitars] became as a slightly shorter Ivan Drago, Ryan Wombacher [bass] was the perfect fit for a modern day Mickey and I of course was a ‘way too Australian’ not quite as ripped version of Apollo Creed.
We entered the studio swinging wildly in all directions with our respective instruments and there was blood, sweat and many many tears, mainly of uncontrollable laughter. Hours later we emerged victorious and super slow motion high-fived each other in classic Rocky fashion as we listened back to the sweet metal sounds of a reformed Survivor classic. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.”
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Jimi Jamison, best known as the singer for the band Survivor, has passed away. He died last night (August 31), after suffering a heart attack.
Survivor issued the following statement on Facebook:
“The entire Survivor family is very shocked and saddened by the passing of our brother Jimi Jamison. Our thoughts, love and prayers go out to his family and friends.”
