In a video uploaded to YouTube, the band wrote:

This cover was so fun to make. We love Fleetwood Mac and wanted to paint a dark and epic picture with our take on The Chain.

The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version, and even made everyone in the band sing by the end of it!

We’re beyond excited to share this with you and I’m really looking forward to playing it live. 

It's certainly different to the original. Have a listen above and let us know your thoughts.
