Wolves At The Gate Debut Music Video For Their Cover Of Linkin Park’s “Breaking The Habit”


Christian post-hardcore group Wolves At The Gate are streaming their cover of Linkin Park‘s gold-certified 2004 single “Breaking The Habit“. This rendition is a part of a covers album titled “Lost In Translation“, which the band will have out on September 22nd through Solid State Records.

The group commented of their rendition:

“There wasn’t much debate about covering a Linkin Park song because they all played a big role in our lives growing up. The hard part was picking the right song that we could actually transform in a different way. The arrangement, sonic landscape, and lyrics of ‘Breaking the Habit‘ ended up being something that connected with everybody unanimously. The genius of the original song is the utter simplicity of the components. The beat and dynamics of the song stay the same for almost the entire song, but at the same time still has so much movement.

We tried to expand on that and add some more movement in the music to complement and accentuate the vocals. It was a bit of a debate to change the rhythmic elements of the song but doing things like breaking down the second verse became some of our favorite parts. The lyrics of the song were so easily relatable as we often feel the same need to express that type of frustration when faced with our own struggles. We hope our cover can express gratitude and love to Chester, his family, and the rest of LP.”
