GEARS is a hard rock band from Miami.
They formed in 2014 after members of the band’s previous projects had disbanded. And this band has been thru it all…lineup changes, financial situations, etc.
Three days into their first tour their equipment truck had an accident. The trailer disconnected and caused a terrible accident. Their gear was totaled. The tour van was totaled. And the band members had serious injuries.
Not the best way to start a tour.
But when most bands would call it a bad omen and pack it in, Gears picked up and continued. Eventually, two of the band members had to drop out.
So they’ve had some “downs”…But they’ve also had some “ups”.
They’ve got some tracks already available but they’re working on new music and a new tour for 2020. One of the new songs is a remake of Living Colour’s “Cult Of Personality”.
So, why do a cover of one of the biggest songs from the entire eighties decade? Drummer Jimmy Wooten says:
“’Cult of Personality’ is a song that we always wanted to cover. That groove, that riff, the vocals, lyrical content … Everything about it has always stuck out to us and been a personal favorite. To have the opportunity to not only record a song that is important to us, but to have Corey Glover himself come in and perform on that track, it was truly a special moment. He was so easy and fun to work with and the final product is really something that we are extremely proud of”.
This track was just released last week and it’s already got attention from rock fans around the world. It is available for download now.
