Pure Noise Records and Pabst Blue Ribbon have teamed up again to present ‘Dead Formats Volume 2’, a 15-track compilation featuring the Pure Noise Records roster sharing their takes on classic songs from Elton John, New Radicals, The Kinks, and scene favourites Taking Back Sunday and more.
The concept with Volume 1 was originally curated as a way for fans to discover new, like-minded bands, the same way legendary comps like Atticus’ Dragging The Lake, Punk O Rama, or the Vans Warped Tour Compilations did in the ’90s and 2000s. Volume 2 will open up a wealth of artists from across the years.
Today, we can watch the superb video from the UK’s The Chisel – covering ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)’ by Elton John. Other tracks released today include Koyo’s cover of ‘Do You Still Hate Me?’ by Jawbreaker, and Prince Daddy and The Hyena’s cover of ‘You Get What You Give’ by New Radicals.
“PBR has a long history of engaging and supporting artists so for us to be able to work with Pure Noise is really special. We love this concept and knowing that the artists involved had fun putting this together makes it all rewarding. We hope it’s a record that inspires discovery and nostalgia from the legendary comps,” shared PBR’s Senior Director of Marketing Partnerships Josh Feingold.
