American metalcore giants Motionless In White have released a cover of The Killers' 2004 classic 'Somebody Told Me', which is available now through Roadrunner Records.
“During quarantine we wanted to continue to see what new projects we could push ourselves to create. We’ve always wanted to take a shot at covering an iconic alternative song, and ‘Somebody Told Me‘ has always been one of those tracks that oozes pure energy, and has crazy good hooks that we felt we could transform into a great rock version.
We are very happy to present this cover as one of the projects birthed out of the COVID down time and hope it’s fun for all fans to check out and tap their feet too.”
The band stay close to the composition of the original track, with vocalist Chris Motionless doing a pretty impressive job of emulating a style similar to The Killers' own Brandon Flowers, but there are also a couple of new elements peppered throughout to keep the cover familiar but refreshing at the same time.

Motionless In White's last album Diguise was released in June 2019 - maybe we'll get some more quarantine projects that MIW have been working on soon!
