Finnish band STEVE ‘N’ SEAGULLS, which shot to fame in 2014 thanks to its bluegrass covers of metal classics, released its second album, “Brothers In Farms”, on September 9 via Spinefarm. The official video for the latest single, STEVE ‘N’ SEAGULLS‘ hillbillified cover of GUNS N’ ROSES“November Rain”, can be seen below.

“Brothers In Farms” track listing:

01. Aces High
02. Sad But True
03. Wishmaster
04. It’s A Long Way To The Top
05. You Could Be Mine
06. November Rain
07. In Bloom
08. Symphony Of Destruction
09. Fill Up The Tank
10. Burn
11. The Pretender
12. Self Esteem
13. Out In The Fields
14. Born To Be Wild

What became a genuine international viral phenomenon actually started out on a farm in central Finland; in a barn, to be precise… There, a bunch of like-minded countrymen — with the emphasis on “country” — played a customized version of AC/DC‘s “Thunderstruck” using homespun instrumentation, everything from banjo picking to anvil bangin’ to achieve their original take on a classic. They filmed the event, posted the results on YouTube, and within a couple of weeks, the clip had accumulated over five million views. It’s now topped out at 25 million.

For STEVE’N’SEAGULLS, this was a bolt from the blue, but then, as history shows us, the greatest stories ever told tend to start in a stable… Yes, a stable.

September 21, 2015 was christened Steve ‘N’ Seagulls Day in the entire state of Colorado, while the band also covered the BEASTIE BOYS‘ hit “Sabotage” for The AV Club, toured the U.S., bringing their folk metal madrigrals to the masses, and appeared at the annual SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.
