Could have been a good cover but he had to try to do that aggressive thing AJ does with his vocals and ruined it.

Yep, and mixed with the fairly noticeable Auto-tune it sounds kinda funky.

Also, what an interesting song to cover. As much as I love TDS, their buzz isn't exactly all that stellar so I wonder why they'd lead off their promotions with this.

Idk. This just isn't good. His cover of The 1975 was terrible as well. I can see why he did it though, the song obviously speaks to him. The changing of "catholic girls" to "christian girls", changing the last name of the family visited in the bridge, and then changing Lori Ann to Mom and dad all points to trying to put his own spin on the song.

It just seems too forced. I dont get the hype around these guys.

Yeah, I don't exactly see the relevance of covering a new TDS song, as good of a track as it is.

These songs are for fun.. rented out a studio for 8 hours and did 7 covers.. The Dangerous Summer, The 1975, Micheal W Smith, Azure Ray, Goo Goo Dolls, Sade and Wheat. Since the band is back together we just wanted to explore with a time limit. Much Respect to those bands! They make our ears happy. We are covering Drake on The Goodnight Moon Tour. stoked on it.
