Khemmis unveil cover of Alice In Chains’ “Down In A Hole”

Posted by on August 7, 2020

 

Khemmis have released a cover of Alice In Chains’ “Down In A Hole.” The track is the first single from the upcoming Alice In Chains tribute album, Dirt [Redux], which will be released on September 18th. 

 

Frontman/guitarist Ben Hutcherson comments:

“I’ve loved this band since I discovered grunge and hard rock in my early teens. When we were presented with the opportunity to cover my favorite song from one of my favorite bands, I checked a pretty big item off of my bucket list. It’s an honor to take such a powerful piece of music and reimagine it through the creative lens of this band. We knew we wanted to stay true to parts of the song, particularly the chorus, but that we also needed to make it our own.

Alice In Chains has long been one of the most important bands in my life. Though they’re (understandably) associated with the Seattle grunge scene, their music carries a visceral heft that, for me, wasn’t present for the other bands of that music world. ‘Dirt‘ was, and remains, a landmark album of bleakness paired with incredible songwriting, and ‘Down In A Hole‘ was one of the first songs I learned to play on my dad’s old Takamine acoustic guitar back in ’98 or ’99.

The fact that a song like that works as well, if not better, on an acoustic guitar as on a distorted electric guitar is a testament to the power of what those four guys created together.”
