Forever Never have confirmed they will release a covers EP in October to coincide with a headline tour. The tour and EP are to be appropriately entitled ‘I Can’t Believe it’s Not Metal‘.
The limited pressing of 1000 copies will only be sold at the bands shows on the headline tour in October and November, so fans wanting to guarantee themselves a copy will have to get down to one of the shows.
The full ‘I Cant Believe It’s not Metal‘ EP tracklisting is as follows (not in order):
‘Still Of The Night’ (Whitesnake)
‘Who is It?’ (Michael Jackson)
‘Future Love Paradise’ (Seal)
‘We Close Our Eyes’ (Go West)
‘You’re The Voice’ (John Farnham)
‘Boombastic’ (Shaggy) featuring Benji Webbe of Skindred.
It has also been confirmed that ‘You’re The Voice‘ is to be the band’s choice for it’s next video single, and details of this will be unveiled in due course.
Frontman Renny had this to say:
“We wanted to do something to keep the momentum going between the self titled album and the 3rd album, and having already recorded Whitesnake and Seal with the last album over 18 months ago, it made sense to record a few more, and make an EP out of it! It was also great to be able to do a track with Benji as he is an absolute legend, and also a good friend after so much gigging and touring over the years! That’s definitely a highlight for us! The whole EP is hopefully going to be a lot of fun for everyone – there’s something there for everyone to enjoy I think!”
Mike Curtis at CDS Studios (InMe, Fei Comodo) who also mixed the self-titled album has been confirmed to mix once again.
