Vampires Everywhere cover Hozier's Take Me To Church

Vampires Everywhere have made their cover of Take Me To Church by Hozier available to stream.

The track, featuring Chelsea Grin’s Alex Koehler, is the second song taken from their upcoming record Ritual, due out on March 18.

It follows the metalcore band’s song Black Betty, which they released in December.

Frontman Michael Orlando, aka Michael Vampire, tells Bloody Disgusting: “The first time I heard Hozier sing Take Me To Church, I knew I had to cover it.

“I also knew I needed one of my homies to collab with me. The first person that came to mind was Alex Koehler. He’s one of my best friends and his scream is evil as fuck.

“I’ve been wanting to collab with him for years and I’m beyond excited with the outcome. The lyrics to this song are amazing and I’m thankful I was able to put my spin on it.”

The band had changed their name to The Killing Lights in November 2013 following Orlando’s near fatal accident, when his tour van was hit by a drunk driver. The band reverted back to their original name in February 2015.

Vampires Everywhere unveiled a promo for Ritual in October and have a handful of live dates planned for March and May this year.
