Covered: VERSUS ME x TEARS FOR FEARS - "Shout"

Written by

Tears for Fears has a timeless catalog that's long been a favorite for covers and reimaginings, and this week "Shout" has received a new metal version courtesy of Wisconsin's Versus Me. About the song, frontman James Milbrandt commented: "When we were deciding which song we wanted to cover, we knew that it had to be an anthem that everyone has heard before. We went through a ton of different ideas for song choices and finally made the decision with 'Shout.' We wanted to bring back a classic track while giving it a heavy, Versus Me feel to it. The theme of this song is also very relevant to what's happening in the world today, so it seemed like it was an obvious choice. We're not the first band to cover this song and we won't be the last, but this is our take on this classic song." Check out the video below...
