Known for having a knack for transforming aggressive metalcore cuts into soothing acoustic heart string-tuggers, This Wild Life have shown their talents once again with their cover of ‘Doomsday’ by Architects.
Speaking about his connection and feelings towards the original song and his choice to cover it, vocalist/guitarist Kevin Jordan had this to say.
“When ‘Doomsday’ was released earlier this year it moved me both musically and lyrically. Underneath an onslaught of riffs and heaviness was this beautiful melody and devastating story of losing a loved one. It’s always a challenge to make a song your own while maintaining its integrity, I hope we did this song justice.”

The band’s new album, ‘Petaluma’, is set for release on June 22nd 2018 via Epitaph Records.
