As part fo their 25 year celebration Bowling For Soup have released their latest cover track, ‘When The Angels Sing’ from revered So-Cal legends Social Distortion.
Explaining their take on the song, frontman Jaret Reddick states, “July 2019, we began trying to release a cover song each month. That became a more difficult task than we imagined, due mostly to having the time AFTER recording the songs to properly get them released. Anyhoo, we have each picked songs at this point…Credit for this one goes to Chris, but there is no denying our shared love for the band Social Distortion!
Social Distortion…What can you REALLY say about a band that pretty much sets itself apart from every other band and genre in the world. Little bit o’this..Little bit o’that…But tough as hell!! Mike Ness is the epitome of “cool,” and his songs sincerely never age…Nor does HE for that matter. Anytime you cover a song from musical royalty, you take a chance. But we took a stab at ‘When the Angels Sing’, and I think we did it justice.”
It’s a straight up cover but with Jaret’s voice it sounds brighter and lighter and without the weight that Social Distortion bring. It’s a good choice for them and they do it justice and make it very much a Bowling For Soup track.
