It took a lot of courage to go in and cover this tune, but I finally did it… and I’m happy to say that I’m proud of it! It’s a FREE download so why don’t you go and grab yourself a copy of it and jam it right into your ear holes?!
And here’s some album news……..
It’s done… ‘Breathing the Machine’ is finished… ready to be put to CDs and start delivering it to YOU! I will be revealing the album artwork sometime this week on my Facebook Page as well as the full tracklist, and then updating it here later.
I’m just a little excited…… and relieved (but mostly excited)!
I got into a conversation with one of my classmates today and decided that I should cover Alex Clare’s track “Too Close”. It’s such a beautiful track full of raw power and emotion, and I felt that it would be pretty damn fun to cover it. So in a mad 5 hour music marathon, I went into my studio and started to plug away at it, where I tried to stay true to the original as much as possible while maintaining a Bullet of Reason style on it. Here’s the final product, mixed and mastered, and ready for your listening and downloading pleasure. Go to my SoundCloud page where you can snag yourself the mp3!
Simple answer to the title of this post….. yes, yes I am.
I’ve really considered covering the original version of the track for awhile now and I finally built up the courage to actually start working on it and eventually decided to take it The Complete Cellout way. It’s still very rough and needs the vocals (which will be fully recorded soon) and then it will be ready for mixing (unless I decide to either scrap the entire thing or want to add more to it….. who knows….)
It’s done and it’s ready for your downloading and listening pleasure! This is really the first time I’ve ever actually done a cover on my own and I gotta say that it was quite fun and challenging. So because you’re all awesome and got my Facebook Page to 100+ Likes, I’m going to deliver what I promised.
Also, don’t forget that I’m doing a pretty sweet charity event. I’ll be gaming for 24 hours for the SickKids Hospital here in Toronto. All the proceeds raised go to the hospital for the kids. You can find all the details on our Extra-Life event page and even join us on Facebook for all the updates on our LIVE 24 Hour broadcast of the entire event.
So here’s a work in progress preview of the cover I’m working on… E.T. by Katy Perry.
The vocals at the moment are there as placeholders and will be redone. I’m also considering on adding some guitars to the mix to give it that nice Bullet of Reason sound you’ve come to enjoy. Though this may work without the guitars….. we’ll see.
Once this cover is completed it will be available for you to download for FREE since you got the Bullet of Reason Facebook Page to 100 Fans! You are all full of awesome!
