Thou Stream Their Cover Of Alice In Chains’ “Them Bones”


Thou‘s cover of Alice In Chains‘ “Them Bones” has made its way online. It’s the latest cover track to emerge from Magnetic Eye Records‘ forthcoming tribute to Alice In Chains‘s 4x multi-platinum sophomore album, “Dirt“. Titled “Dirt [Redux]“, that tribute will be out this Friday, September 18th and also features Alice In Chains covers from the likes of Khemmis, -(16)- and more. Pre-orders can be found here.

Thou frontman Bryan Funck commented of his band’s take on the track:

“It seemed inevitable that we’d do another AIC song since their music was such a big part of Matthew‘s [Thudium, Thou guitarist] and my formative years. We had covered ‘No Excuses‘ some years ago, but it never quite got the reaction I thought it deserved, and our arrangement was a slowed-down and kind of left-field take on the song.

With ‘Them Bones‘, we had a chance to tackle a song that more directly translated to our style. The song had been on my mind anyway — I had recently listened to a podcast that dissected all the tracks on ‘Dirt‘ and it really dawned on me that opening the album with ‘Them Bones‘ was such a bold and cool move. No count off, no intro, just straight into the insanity.”
