August Burns Red Share Cover Of Wham!’s “Last Christmas”


August Burns Red continue their holiday tradition with the below cover of Wham!‘s “Last Christmas“. Bassist Dustin Davidson said of the song:

“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. When I decided to cover ‘Last Christmas‘ I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. I didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.”
