SONG PREMIERE: August Burns Red – “Last Christmas (Wham Cover)”

August Burns Red has premiered their cover of Wham‘s song “Last Christmas” recently. You can check that out below.

Bassist Dustin Davidson has the following to say about the song:

“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. 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.”
