Leave all your love and your longing behind. You can't carry it with you if you want to survive.
Those are Florence Welch's words. Now, rockers Stick to Your Guns have released a surprise –and really fucking awesome-- cover of Florence + the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over." The song is a preview of Sumerian Records' tribute album Florence + The Sphinx.
"Florence is so talented. We chose this song because it has always resonated with us," frontman Jesse Barnett said. We totally get that. The song is uber powerful and it put Flo on the map.
He continued, "Vocally, you can hear the growth of the band. We wanted to do something that would surprise people. We believe in stepping outside of the box – never satisfied with the 'safe' choice. Can't wait to see what people think."
We think it's rad, FYI.
The video is comprised of fan photos. Last week, the band asked fans, "What brings you happiness?" Their diehards created and tweeted photos back to the band. There were thousands of entries within hours.
Enough talking and more listening.
Listen to the song below.
