The Venetia Fair To Release Cover EP

The Venetia FairThe Venetia Fair has announced the release of their new cover EP, The Venetia Fair…Basically Just Does Karaoke, to be released on December 24. Rooted the success of their Kickstarter for  Every Sick Disgusting Though We’ve Got In Our Brain, 6 donors got to choose a song for the band to cover—and thus the new cover EP was born.

Speaking about the track list, vocalist Benny Santoro says: “We said we’d cover anything they wanted and we got 6 very different songs from different genres and different eras in music, each with their own challenges. We had no intention of simply playing these songs as they were originally played (especially Bohemian Rhapsody… we didn’t wanna go anywhere near that song!) so we took our time and completely rebuilt them from the ground up to make sure we made them our own. Some of the songs we loved and had to figure out how to tweak them without totally ruining them and some of the songs we hated and had to figure out how to make them good, but I believe we rose to the challenge and, with the help of our Kickstarter backers, put together a very strange and very cool little cover EP. We definitely trashed some classic tunes, but it’s all very tongue-in-cheek since we would never take a cover song seriously ’cause it’s basically just doing karaoke…”
