THE ABSENCE Covers BAD RELIGION's 1988 Track "Do What You Want"

Awesome band covers awesome band. Check.


The Absence is on the road with Deicide, Origin and Jungle Rot and they're offering fans a tour-only cassette called Walking Shadows. The cassette features an unreleased track called "Walking Shadows", a live version of "Septic Testament", and of course a killer cover of Bad Religion's 1988 track "Do What You Want". Which vocalist Jamie Stewart says is pretty aptly named, considering the band's beliefs.

“'Do What You Want' is named appropriately. Fuck norms, fuck stigmas, fuck walls – do what you want. Makes sense to us. Bang your head! Special thanks to our friend Stanley Soares for mixing this bastard.”

Walking Shadows features artwork from Mark Riddick (Morbid Angel, Revocation, Dying Fetus), which you can check out below. Now get your ass out there and see The Absence.
