Aussie metallers Northlane have covered Fatboy Slim's iconic 'Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat' as part of the ‘Fatboy Slim VS Australia’ EP to be released this month.
The Sydney heavy-rock outfit have kept the structure of the tune in tact while beefing up the rock element, bouncing from electro to heavy and hardcore in the chorus, in direct contrast with the lyrics.
Paying homage to the classic dance track, Northlane admit: "Reinterpreting this song and adding a little bit of the Northlane sound into it was a challenge for us and we hope that we’ve done it justice.
"We believe that the metal and electronic genres share many similarities and we’re thrilled we got the opportunity to contribute to this release!"
After winning the 2017 ARIA for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal for their fourth album ‘Mesmer’, this is the first release from the band for 2018.
The track sits alongside already released ‘Praise You’, from one of Australia’s finest producers The Kite String Tangle, as well as a bunch of other talents including Set Mo, Sam La Moore, The Aston Shuffle, Carmada and LO’99 on ‘Fatboy Slim VS Australia’.
