Nashville-based punk rock duo Blacklist Royals have officially released the new video for their cover of The Cure's classic track "Plainsong". They have taken their signature style and applied it to their next EP, "Dead Time Volume One: Songs of The Cure", that features three unique covers of the band's favorite Cure songs. The EP will be available as a free download in the coming weeks.

"When we had the idea to do an ongoing cover series, the Cure seemed like the perfect band to start with. Their songs are all so atmospheric, but at their core are these simple, beautiful pop songs, which meant we could basically do whatever we wanted with them. 'Plainsong' is a tune that a lot of people who only know the Cure by their greatest hits may not have heard, so it was not only a blast to arrange as a Blacklist Royals song but also a cool way to introduce our fans to an album cut-from The Cure's best album, in my opinion-from such an iconic band." - Nat
