New Album, Covers Collection Vol.2, Out September 1, 2023!
Vancouver, BC Canada based, Alternative Rock band THE VEER UNION has joined forces with ROCK SHOP RECORDS label-mate JODY BLACK to cover the dark, 2019 BILLIE EILISH hit single, “You Should See Me in a Crown”! With the single produced by the band’s lead vocalist, CRISPIN EARL, and video directed by JULIEN BOUFFARD, the alt-pop hit has been reconstructed with explosive vocals while building on the emotional horror of the original with monster guitar riffs and grinding, gut wrenching bass. “You Should See Me in a Crown” is the newest single off of the band’s forthcoming album, Covers Collection Vol.2, which is set to release September 1, 2023 via ROCK SHOP RECORDS!
“At the core of our artistic journey lies a relentless pursuit of versatility. Our constant drive to push the boundaries, not only for ourselves but also for those who support us, is deeply ingrained in our approach. When we decided to take on Billie Eilish’s ‘You Should See Me In A Crown,’ we knew we were venturing into the shadows of a truly dark and track. Billie’s unique vocal delivery posed a challenge we couldn’t replicate, leading us to embrace the darkness and craft our own rendition. As a result, this cover became the heaviest track we have ever released. Collaborating with our good friend and label mate, Jody Black, was an absolute pleasure, and his contributions enriched the entire experience, making it a moment of collaborative unity that we will forever cherish.” – THE VEER UNION
