Slipknot have been covered by pop punkers Real Friends. Yes, you read that right.
Dan Lambton and co. have taken on the classic hardcore metal band’s early hit Duality as part of a special compilation CD for the 250th edition of Rock Sound, which also saw input from the likes of Waterparks, As It Is and Set it Off.
The cover is one of the more unique and surprising tracks on the album, one which you can get your copy of by heading to the Rock Sound website. Although Real Friend’s rendition of Duality is currently only available to those who order the CD, the band have managed to appease the intrigued by sharing a video of them recording the track. It involves baseball bats, and you can watch it below.
Thanks for the kind words about our Slipknot cover. We had fun getting heavy and hitting things with a baseball bat. pic.twitter.com/vIOhJiDDaf
