ALLEGAEON have released a brand new cover song!
The cover, for RUSH‘s Animate, was originally recorded during the recording sessions for 2016’s Proponent For Sentience alongside the band’s take on Subdivisions which appeared on said album. Speaking about the new cover, Guitarist Greg Burgess says, “when we settled on RUSH to cover during the Proponent sessions, I simply couldn’t pick which song to do. Subdivisions or Animate. Both were favorites for me personally, and both were sort of ‘under the radar’ eg. not Tom Sawyer or Spirit of the Radio. Where the original idea was to do a cover for a Japanese bonus track, we figured if we did both we could cover a special song for both the Japan AND Europe pressing. Then the powers that be decided to just include Subdivisions on the album, and keep Animate in reserve for something. Jan 6th, 2018 is the only occurrence of the golden ratio in date form that will occur during our life time. So 1.6.18 seemed like the perfect date to release it in ALLEGAEON fashion.”
