Rogue Wave will release new deluxe edition of their Black Friday/Record Store Day, Cover Me album. The album featured 80s covers of The Cure, ZZ Top, The Cult, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Romantics, Genesis and more. The expanded edition of the vinyl LP will come with a bonus 7″ with Psychedelic Furs’ “Love My Way” and Big Country’s “In A Big Country” and there’s also a digital bonus track cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Money Changes Everything.” There are only 300 available and preorders are available now.

Zach Rogue said,

“This album started as a means to an end. before we started tracking Delusions of Grand Fur, we were wondering if we could make the record without a producer and in our own studio. So we decided to track a cover song and see what happened. We tried to reimagine “Talking in Your Sleep” by The Romantics, effectively turning the song upside down. Some of the bounciest pop songs can have the most sinister subtext. After doing that song, we were reduced to little kids again, wondering what song to cover next, and wouldn’t it be fun to constrain it just to songs from the 80’s, and man oh man how amazing do old casio synths sound. We recorded about a double album’s worth of music, So that’s why there are these bonus tracks as well. I’m pretty fond of The Psychedelic Furs song. What a fucking great band they were. what an amazing era. Who knows, maybe we’ll try the 70’s next.”
