Saint Asonia has put a hard rock spin on The Weeknd‘s inescapable hit, “Blinding Lights.”
“I just wanted to do something that people wouldn’t necessarily expect,” frontman Adam Gontier says of the cover. “I mean, any way you look at it, ‘Blinding Lights’ is a GREAT song. It was fun to give it our flavor, and add our style to it.”
The ex-Three Days Grace frontman was also psyched to take on a song by another Canadian artist.
“That made it even sweeter,” Gontier says. “We’re all pumped with how it turned out. It hits hard.”
You can download the “Blinding Lights” cover now via digital outlets.
Along with Gontier, Saint Asonia includes Staind guitarist Mike Mushok. The band’s latest album, their sophomore effort Flawed Design, was released in 2019.
