Whilst Australia’s Hellions were last over in the UK, they teamed up with You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi to put together a revamped version of their track ’24’ from their debut full-length studio album, ‘Opera Oblivia’.
The track, which was recorded in You Me At Six‘s studio by their drummer Dan Flint, will feature on the band’s new double A-side single, ’24’/‘Jesus Of Suburbia’ (Green Day cover).
You can stream and listen to the revamped version of the song below:
Speaking of his guest vocal spot, Franceschi says, “When the lads asked me to sing on the track, I was more than game as I love what the song is about and the meaning behind it. They are all great lads and it was a pleasure to be part of it.”
Hellions guitarist Matt Gravolin also commented on the song and the feature, “’24’ deals with the importance of being oneself, detailing the struggles of maintaining grace and patience in times of tumult. Josh added a new dimension to the song with his performance and to watch him do so was awe-inspiring, especially after spinning You Me At Six single ‘Give’ and eventually the entirety of their latest record ‘Night People’ repeatedly during the preceding weeks. We’re ecstatic to have been invited to share the stage with the boys in September and we’re counting down the days.”
The band’s new double A-side single, ’24’/‘Jesus Of Suburbia’, is available now via UNFD.
