Witherfall have shared a video for their cover of Boston’s “Foreplay/Long Time,” entitled “Long Time (Long Version).” The track is taken from the group’s latest effort, Curse of Autumn, which was released in March via Century Media Records (read our review here). However, this song was only available as an acoustic version on the album and a slightly shorter band version on the Japanese edition.
The group comments:
“Witherfall are huge fans of Boston. We are obviously influenced by the rich guitar and vocal harmony work. Joseph grew up in upstate New York, and Tom Scholz would come to his grandpa’s lawnmower shop for repair work. Upon becoming interested in playing guitar, Joseph would frequent Bank Place Guitars, a shop owned by Joe Bonamassa’s father and Tom Scholz. Our version of Boston’s ‘Foreplay/Long Time’ is a tribute to one of the greatest voices in rock and roll history — Boston vocalist Brad Delp, who in 2007, tragically took his own life. The re-working of this song reflects the true emotions behind the lyrical content. RIP.”
