Boston based rock band The Venetia Fair have announced the release of their awaited cover EP,  ‘The Venetia Fair … Basically Just Does Karaoke’. The EP will be released on the 24th December! 

The idea of this cover EP came about with the success of the bands Kickstater campaign in 2012 which funded their album ‘Every Sick Disgusting Though We’ve Got In Our Brain’. 

Six donors purchased a prize which entitled them to choose a song for the band to cover - as a result the track listing for this EP was made.

Singer Benny Santoro comments, “We said we'd cover anything they wanted and we got 6 very different songs from different genres and different eras in music, each with their own challenges. 

 

“We had no intention of simply playing these songs as they were originally played, so we took our time and completely rebuilt them from the ground up to make sure we made them our own. 

 

“Some of the songs we loved and had to figure out how to tweak them without totally ruining them and some of the songs we hated and had to figure out how to make them good, but I believe we rose to the challenge and, with the help of our Kickstarter backers, put together a very strange and very cool little cover EP. 

 

“We definitely trashed some classic tunes, but it's all very tongue-in-cheek since we would never take a cover song seriously 'cause it's basically just doing karaoke..."

 

Track List: 

 

- Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

- Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runner

- Rock Lobster - The B52s

- Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

- Camouflage, Camouflage - The Blood Brothers

- The Willing Well III: Apollo II: The Telling Truth – Coheed and Cambria
