Hear Between the Buried and Me Bassist Dan Briggs's Cover of 'Twin Peaks' Theme

Between the Buried and Me bassist Dan Briggs shared a cover of “Falling,” the theme song from David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult television show, Twin Peaks. His version of the song can be heard below.

Speaking on his fandom for the show and reasons for covering the theme, Briggs explained: “When I was in college I started down the rabbit hole of everything David Lynch and have found so much inspiration in his work over the years. This is a song that has haunted me for most of my life as I was 6 when the series originally aired and my parents were immersed in it. I really wanted to put my spin on it as it's probably the most gorgeous three chord song in existence; and I wanted the end of the song to feel like you were being sucked into the Black Lodge.”

Twin Peaks ran for two seasons in 1990 and 1991. The supernatural series explored the puzzling death of a small town’s popular high school student, Laura Palmer, employing paranormal and extraterrestrial themes. In addition to the prequel films Fire Walk with Me and The Missing Pieces, the series is launching a revival season via Showtime. It will premiere this Sunday, May 21.

Between the Buried and Me will embark on a “Colors Ten Year Anniversary Tour,” in which the band will perform their landmark album, Colors, in full. The dates can be found at this location.
