KEN mode Streaming Their Cover Of Helmet’s “Turned Out”


KEN mode‘s cover of Helmet‘s “Turned Out” has premiered online. It will appear on “Meantime [Redux]“, the upcoming tribute to Helmet‘s gold selling 1992 album, “Meantime“. Magnetic Eye Records will have that tribute in stores on September 16th. Guitarist/vocalist Jesse Matthewson commented:

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.”
