With the critical acclaim that quickly followed after the release of CORNERS OF SANCTUARY‘s (COS) first ever cover of Def Leppard‘s “Mirror, Mirror” this past January, COS will be dropping a new digital, three-track Def Leppard tribute EP titled “Defying” on May 20th. Listeners can pre-order the EP on Spotify starting May 1st. The EP, which will be made available via Sonic Velocity Records, will contain COS-branded cover versions of the aforementioned “Mirror, Mirror,” as well as include a beefy rendering of “Rock of Ages” and a unique piano-laden adaptation of the classic track, “Bringing on the Heartbreak.” The EP was mastered by legendary L.A. producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Armored Saint).
“We really had no intention to do any more cover songs…but one thing led to another and here we are with a tribute EP,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels.
