Traditional American Heavy Metal titans, CORNERS OF SANCTUARY (COS), have released a new music video for their latest single, “Rock of Ages,” from the Def Leppard Tribute EP, “Defying.” The single marks the third track from the band’s first ever cover venture. Following last winter’s “Mirror, Mirror” and the release of this past summer’s smash hit, “Bringing on the Heartbreak,” COS gives the classic Leppard anthem a power punch of Metal adrenaline.
“Rock of Ages” stands as one of Def Leppard’s most beloved and enduring songs, which was instrumental with ushering in Heavy Metal’s dominance throughout the later part of the 80s. Corners of Sanctuary delivers a solid, supercharged version worthy of the original classic’s popularity.
“We really enjoyed working on these songs and adding our own twists and turns to them,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. “The overall reaction has been great…this project gave us a chance to spread our musical wings.”
In addition to the “Defying” EP, a version of Corners of Sanctuary’s “Rock of Ages” also appears on the FnA Records’ Def Leppard tribute compilation, “Let’s Get Rocked.”
“Defying” is available through Sonic Velocity Records on all digital platforms.
As the Christmas season quickly approaches, COS will once again be releasing their yearly anticipated Holiday song for 2022, titled “Christmas Together.” The all new, original track will be made available through Exquisite Noise Records in November and bundled together with several other previous year tracks as part of their annual Merry Metal Xmas package.
COS will be supporting TRAPT in Newark, DE on November 10th. Show dates for 2023 are also on the schedule including support Enuff Z Nuff in February, a return to the UK in April and several performances at this summer’s SonarFest 2023. See show schedule below.
