August Burns Red have released a new cover of System Of A Down's classic 'Chop Suey!'. The band had been using the song as their pre-walk out music during live shows for years, but have now taken it one step further with a heavy take on the 2001 tune.
Guitarist JB Brubaker comments:
“After years of playing ‘Chop Suey!‘ over the PA system right before we took the stage at our shows, we decided to take a crack at the song ourselves. This is truly one of the most legendary rock/metal songs of all time and it was so much fun to cover. I’m especially proud of our singer Jake and our bassist Dustin. We haven’t done much clean singing in our music and this song showcases our vocalists in a whole new way.”
