Engine Room is back with another installment of our covers compilation series Guilt By Association. The Guilt By Association concept is easy, we ask artists to cover songs that one could call a guilty pleasure, but the catch is we all love these songs guilt free! Past volumes included tracks by Devendra Banhart, Will Oldham, Superchunk, My Brightest Diamond, Matt Pond PA, and Frightened Rabbit covering artists such as Mariah Carey, My Chemical Romance, Ace of Base and Destiny’s Child.
On Guilt By Association Volume 3 we’ve gone one step further and added a theme within this theme. For this newest installment all the songs had to be plucked from everyone’s favorite genre, 80’s hair metal! Vol. 3 features Helmet covering Loudness, Mike Viola tackling Ratt, Madison Square Gardeners doing Poison, Canon Logic taking on Cinderella and Bird of Youth covering Skid Row. It’s streaming and available for sale on our music/store page here. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
And we couldn’t of asked for a better album cover (below) for this newest edition, many thanks goes to the very talented Carolyn Wachnicki for the amazing design.
