Eagulls have added a Killing Joke cover to their new single - check out 'Requiem' below.
Part of Leeds' sprawling, intense DIY scene, Eagulls always do things their own way. Sure, it'd be easier for them to simply hop on board the nearest bandwagon but, really, where's the fun in that?
Returning with new single 'Nerve Endings' the band decided to throw in something unexpected. The A-side is classic Eagulls: all demented riffs, pounding drums and vocals that virtually scream with authenticity.
For the flip, the Leeds outfit looked to one of their own heroes. Killing Joke are much maligned, yet the band's output - bridging the gap between post-punk, industrial and goth - still thrills after all these years.
Tackling 'Requiem' Eagulls pay their solemn respects with a faithful, respectful rendition. Available on the flip of 'Nerve Endings' you can listen to the track below.
'Nerve Endings' is out now. Eagulls have confirmed the following shows:
30 Leeds Brudenell Social Club w/ Parquet Courts
31 Glasgow w/ Parquet Courts
5 London Sebright Arms w/ Autobahn
6 Cardiff Moon Club
