  • Get Into The Festive Spirit With August Burns Red's Rendition Of 'Last Cristmas'
    POSTED 5 Dec 2017

    It's that time of year - cheesy Christmas music is taking over, and there is no escape. Let's take a moment to spare a thought for our brothers and sisters working in retail right now. 

    It still sounds cheesy as hell, but August Burns Red have done a fun heavy metal cover of Wham!'s 1986 hit Last Christmas. Take a listen!

    "This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic." says bassist Dustin Davidson.

    "When I decided to cover ‘Last Christmas‘ I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. I didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well."
