Rising metalcore band Versus Me have shared their video for their cover of 1980s Pop-Rock classic ‘Shout’ by Tears For Fears. You can watch it below or stream it on Spotify. The band was attracted to the song since it has a message that resonates loudly with the state of the world today, as much or more so than when it was first released. The track was produced by Josh Napert and mixed/mastered by Joel Wanasek (Machine Head, Miyavi, Phinehas).
Singer James Milbrandt commented:
“When we were deciding which song we wanted to cover, we knew that it had to be an anthem that everyone has heard before. We went through a ton of different ideas for song choices and finally made the decision with ‘Shout’.
“We wanted to bring back a classic track while giving it a heavy, Versus Me feel to it. The theme of this song is also very relevant to what’s happening in the world today, so it seemed like it was an obvious choice. We’re not the first band to cover this song and we won’t be the last, but this is our take on this classic song.”
