Alunah release cover version of ‘A Forest’

English doom metal outfit ALUNAH have released a new song

The new song, A Forest originally written by THE CURE, is taken from their upcoming album Solennial which is scheduled to be released in March. Speaking about the track, vocalist and guitarist Sophie Day says, A Forest was originally released by THE CURE in 1980 and has been covered by quite a few artists; it’s now been given the Alunah treatment. It’s the only cover we’ve recorded; a decision we made after playing it live for a couple of years, and always to a great reception. This video was also a perfect chance to show off Adrian Baxter‘s stunning artwork for Solennial.”
