Cover Your Tracks is a rock band from Atlanta, Georgia that formed in February of 2014. I couldn't find a ton of information regarding them but I did discover that they released their debut album and EP this year. Today we're going to be talkiing about the EP, because it came first.
They're actually quite a bit heavier than I expected. They have themselves labeled as a rock band on Facebook, but I'd say they're more metalcore and are actually somewhat reminescent of Motionless In White.
Cover Your Tracks released The Taken EP on February 9, 2016, and it only had four songs on it. Starting with 'Round & Round." Which seems to be about a failed relationship where you accidentally blamed them for your actions. I could be wrong about that, as it also seems to have a hint of alcoholism to it, and it repeatedly says, "I will not let you win." Its hard to say exactly what the song is about, but I definitely can say it sounds fantastic.
"Never Again" really spoke to me. Not only did it have a great beat, and just the right amount of screaming in it, but its about not letting someone win. You hit your limit of people's bullshit, and you eventually say they're not going keep using you. This song is by far my favorite on the EP.
I could easily talk about every song, but then I will just spoil it all. So instead I'm going to leave it there and tell you to check it out on Spotify or iTunes. Also know that they released their first full length album, Fever Dream later on in 2016. I have yet to listen to it but stay tuned as a review of it is coming soon.
Use their music as excitment because Cover Your Tracks will be at Fort Rock 2017!
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
