INTER ARMA - Presents Cover Of Prince's "Purple Rain"

Richmond's (USA) Inter Arma, reigning masters of the slow build, celebrate their past on Garbers Days Revisited, their new covers record, recorded in between tours in support of their critically acclaimed 2019 full length Sulphur English. Now the band presents the cover of "Purple Rain" by Prince.

Inter Arma comments: "This was never meant to be heard publicly. It was meant to be outrageous- to be played late at night while laughing and drinking beer with our friends. Because that's what this is: Inter Arma covering the greatest pop song of the 1980s, and arguably of all time, by Prince, who HATED when people covered his music. The vocals were done in one take by the drummer and not pitch-corrected, because who else can sing like that? Prince. So we opted to stay honest and simple because we never thought that the general public would hear it. Once Relapse heard it there was a little bit of back and forth between the two camps and it was decided, reluctantly, to be included on the record. We hope everyone enjoys this and gets a little bit of a chuckle because I think we could all use that right about now. Stay safe, stay outrageous, BLM."

Garbers Days Revisited is due out on 10th July via Relapse Records. Garbers Days Revisited, named after the band's former practice space, was once again tracked at Dark Art Audio in Madison, TN. Inter Arma show off their wide array of influences, tackling covers by Nine Inch Nails, Prince, Neil Young, Cro-Mags, and more. Listen in the player below to Inter Arma's rendition of "Purple Rain" and over HERE you can still hear how they covered Neil Young's "Southern Man". Link
