3TEETH Premiere Cover Of Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”


3TEETH have released a cover of Foster The People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks” below. 3TEETH frontman Alexis Mincolla had the following to say of his band’s rendition of the track:

“Industrial bands have a long history of subverting popular culture songs. From songs like Revolting Cocks’ version ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’ or Laibach’s ‘Sympathy for the Devil“. We’ve just always been a fan of this sort of thing and felt it would be a good time to take an iconic song of the late 2000’s and give it some unexpected 2019 industrial darkness, which in the end seemed all too fitting considering the song is about a school shooter.”

The cover closes out the band’s forthcoming album “Metawar“, which is headed for a release next Friday, July 05th, through Century Media.
