Living End To Record Duran Duran Cover
The Living End will wrap up its tour with the Offspring and D Generation tonight in Chicago, but it won't get any immediate time off. The group already has a session booked with Fishbone and Sugar Ray producer David Kahne.
The Aussie punks will head to L.A. this weekend to cut a cover of Duran Duran's "Girls on Film" for another tribute album to the group, according to a spokesperson for the Living End's label, Reprise Records.
The band will rehearse its version of the song tomorrow, record and mix the track on Friday and Saturday, and cap off the weekend with a show at the Roxy Theater in West Hollywood. The as-yet-untitled Duran Duran tribute disc is currently scheduled for release in Australia, but not in the U.S., so fans may have to eventually resort to scouring through the import bins to find the record.
In related news, the Living End is one of the confirmed acts for this summer's Warped Tour, scheduled to kick off on June 25 at San Antonio's Retama Park.
