Three songs from the upcoming HELMET covers album ‘Meantime [Redux]’ are now online and available for streaming. KEN MODE’s version of “Turned Out” marks the newets addition to previously release pair of covers from MEEK IS MURDER and I AM BECOME DEATH. The full record is due out on September 16 via Magnetic Eye Records.
Jesse Matthewson of KEN MODE commented on their effort:
“Helmet’s ‘Turned Out’ is our bassist’s favorite song on Meantime, so it’s suiting that he wasn’t around to witness us butcher it till it barely resembled the original. We’ve never been huge fans of doing covers, so when faced with this proposition, we had to find a way to make the song more fun for ourselves. Nobody wants to hear bands like us play Helmet karaoke anyway, as the group is basically 90s canon – if people want to hear the song, they’ll go to the original. So this is our ‘Turned Out’ as inspired by Helmet’s original.”
