3Teeth Share Intense Industrial Cover Of ‘Pumped Up Kicks’

In anticipation of their third album, Metawar, 3Teeth have shared their brutal cover of Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks.” They’ve also released its accompanying video, which is a commentary on school shootings. Watch the video below.

“Industrial bands have a long history of subverting popular culture songs. From songs like Revolting Cocks’ version ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’ or Laibach’s ‘Sympathy for the Devil,” says 3Teeth frontman Alexis Mincolla. “We’ve just always been a fan of this sort of thing and felt it would be a good time to take an iconic song of the late 2000’s and give it some unexpected 2019 industrial darkness, which in the end seemed all too fitting considering the song is about a school shooter.”

The track follows the previously released single “President X.” Both tracks appear on their upcoming album, Metawar, out July 5th. Pre-order a copy here.

3Teeth is currently wrapping up their European tour. They kick off their North American tour July 15th in Salt Lake City, Utah with Author & Punisher and GosT. Find those dates here.
