For their contribution to Fearless Records' Punk Goes Pop 5, SECRETS have re-interpreted Gym Class Heroes' "Ass Back Home" as a post-hardcore power jam, and we're excited to be bringing you the premiere of the track's lyric video.
In this video, bold, metallic-looking lyrics race in front of a background that glitters with gold, green, and blue. These low-key visuals allow for the track to remain center stage, and with good reason—the band have created a cover so striking in its originality, it almost sounds like a completely new tune.
"It's such a privilege to be a part of this years Punk Goes Pop alongside some of our favorite bands. We had a blast getting out of our normal element to put our own twist on this song that we ended up really enjoying," says frontman Xander Bourgeois. "We chose to do 'Ass Back Home' by Gym Class Heroes because we had been on the road for eight weeks without seeing our friends and families back home and it really connected."
Enjoy the video's exclusive premiere right here, and be sure to pick up Punk Goes Pop 5 if you haven't already. For more from SECRETS, pick up their debut full-length, The Ascent, out now.
