Pure Noise Records and Pabst Blue Ribbon have announced they will be teaming up once again as part of their ‘Dead Formats’ compilation series. ‘Dead Formats Volume 2’ is set to be released on September 5th and will see the likes of Less Than Jake, Knuckle Puck, Lavalove and The Early November put their own respective spin on tracks from The Kinks, Third Eye Blind, Nirvana, and New Order.
Personally, I’m looking forward to hearing Prince Daddy and the Hyena take on the New Radicals‘ classic 90s one-hit wonder ‘You Get What You Give’. As well as what The Seafloor Cinema do with Taking Back Sunday‘s ‘Cute Without the E’.
