July 26 — Downfall 2012 officially released its take on a classic Motorhead song over the weekend.
The independent hard rock band premiered its take on ‘Ace of Spades‘ Friday. The nearly three-minute take stays true to its source material while giving it a welcome update at the same time. The heavy guitar arrangement featured at the song’s heart pairs with the vocal delivery of front man Tim Armstrong to make the whole comparable to works from Adrenaline Mob.
The band said in a prepared statement that it has been covering ‘Ace of Spades’ for a long time.
“In Spring of 2021 we were invited to tour with gclid=Cj0KCQjw6NmHBhD2ARIsAI3hrM1FJBUtuSGluHskk_R5Af1u1fAi0QWmAc5CsJhcOlJQcc60T6h8sf0aAuI6EALw_wcB” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow Review on a number of TX dates,” the statement reads. “On the run our buddy Short E. Dangerously suggested we record our rendition of Motorhead’s ‘Ace of Spades’ for him to use in future performances. We had been playing the song for years but never considered recording it. However, we loved Shorty’s idea and decided to give it a go!
The statement adds, “We recorded everything in our personal studio, and then shipped it off to our producer Jim Finley to put his magic on it. The track came out so good that we had to share it with everyone!”
