"Closer" is one of my least favorite NINE INCH NAILS songs. I love some NIN, and I saw 'em live way back in '94 when they toured with MARILYN MANSON and THE JIM ROSE CIRCUS. That song, though? Never grabbed me. Now, Los Angeles-based STARS IN STEREO have given the song a shot of rock with a new cover that was unleashed this week. Hear it below.



STARS IN STEREO will release their debut album on April 9, though "Closer" is not one of the included tracks.

The track listing for the album is as follows:
1. The Broken
2. Violence
3. All Together
4. Dealing Secrets
5. Lie Down
6. Red Eyed Romance
7. Open Your Eyes
8. At The Stroke of Midnight
9. Every Last Thing
10. Queen Of Catastrophe 
STARS IN STEREO have also announced that they will be teaming up with Drowning Pool and Flyleaf for a spring tour which kicks off on February 19th in Atlanta. For complete dates and to stay current on all things Stars in Stereo follow them on Facebook and Twitter.  The new album will be available from the band at their tour merch booth.
