Australia’s Party Popping Band Furnace And the Fundamentals are taking on American rock titans Rage Against The Machine, in their latest reimagined Christmas cover ‘Giving In The Name Of’.
Hailing from the great land of Aus, it's safe to say this fun-loving six-piece band have had an epic 2019. Having played to over 20,000 people at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone, closing the main stage at Royal Ascot, headlining London’s Electric Ballroom and performing to packed crowds at festivals and clubs across the UK/Europe. A similar story follows back home in Australia, as they continued to enjoy success as the country’s biggest party band, selling out the 2,000 capacity Enmore Theatre in Sydney and recently being announced for NYE on the main stage at Lost Paradise Festival. Now, Furnace are following up this success with the release of ‘Giving In The Name Of’.
A rendition of Rage Against The Machines original ‘Killing In the Name’, the party groups christmas-sy version of the track takes the sounds of jingle bells and the gift of giving and weaves these elements into a festive fun-filled song. Still leaving in heavy guitar riffs and rock instrumentals, the cover strikes the ideal blend between paying homage to the original, yet putting the bands stamp on the song. Re-working the lyrics to incorporate a more XMAS feel, as well as injecting it with some catchy sleigh bells, Furnace And the Fundamentals ‘Giving In The Name Of’ is the only gift we want this Christmas.
With another cover under their belts, for Furnace And Fundamentals they are next setting their sights on getting households across the globe rocking around their Christmas trees with upcoming festive release titled ‘A Very Furnace Christmas’ set for release in December.
