After recently having their song “Bones” featured on an episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, metalcore maestros August Burns Red are back with more exciting TV-related news.
Today, after over two years of hard work, the Pennsylvania band is showing off their stunning rendition of the Westword theme song.
“The soundtrack to Westworld has been a favorite of mine as long as the HBO series has existed,” explains guitarist JB Brubaker. “I started working on a metal version of the main theme to the show back in 2018, but pushed it to the backburner as other projects took priority.”
Brubaker adds, “When COVID sent us into lockdown, the first thing I did with my time at home was finish the Westworld cover. We recorded it in the summer of 2020 and I’m really proud of how it came out. I hope fans of the show will feel we did it justice!”
