Weird Nightmare have shared their version of The Troggs’ 1966 ballad, “Our Love Will Still Be There” is out now. “British Invasion is a really big part of my musical DNA” shares Weird Nightmare’s Alex Edkins. “The Kinks, The Troggs, The Pretty Things are my go-to comfort music. I wear their influence pretty heavily on my sleeve on at least a couple Weird Nightmare songs, “I Think You Know” and “Lusitania” come to mind. The Troggs, and all the American garage bands they influenced, make distorted pop that, to my ears, sounds like the precursor to punk. Loose, gritty, immediate, and heartfelt.”

The cover follows the band’s self-titled full length debut, as well as the double A-Side split, “I Think You Know” w/ “Bird With an Iron Head” with friends Ancient Shapes, in addition to the recently released single “So Far Gone.”
