Grammy-nominated Los Angeles-based rock band The Record Company are set to return with Side Project, an EP featuring covers of some of their favorite, most influential artists. Produced by bassist Alex Stiff, the record is set for release May 19 via Concord Records; listen/share the band’s cover of the Big Mama Thornton classic “Ball and Chain” HERE and watch the official video HERE.
“The pandemic forced us to try an entirely different approach to our process, with everyone working from home,” the band explains. “With ‘Ball and Chain,’ we used some really non-traditional home methods and ended up finding some new sounds we may not have found otherwise.”
“Side Project is what happens when three guys who have always been in bands finish their record, are locked away from each other, and are told they need to make more ‘content,’” they add. “So, we took songs we love, fucked them up, cut them up and twisted them around, until we loved it and felt like a band again.”
