Halestorm will release their new EP, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP, on October 15. As with its predecessor, 2011’s ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP, the record sees Halestorm putting their distinctive spin on a eclectic collection of classic songs, including, this time, tracks by Judas Priest, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Fleetwood Mac, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk (see the track list under the music stream). In anticipation, the band has teamed with Revolver to premiere the Daft Punk cover, of the electronic group’s “Get Lucky.” Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

“Like our first ReAniMate EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves,” Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale said. “We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ReAniMate: 2.0 as we did!”

ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP track list:

  1. Dissident Aggressor (Originally Performed By Judas Priest)
  2. Get Lucky (Originally Performed By Daft Punk)
  3. Shoot To Thrill  (Originally Performed By AC/DC)
  4. Hell Is For Children (Originally Performed By Pat Benatar)
  5. Gold Dust Woman (Originally Performed By Fleetwood Mac)
  6. 1996 (Originally Performed By Marilyn Manson)

    One of the worst songs ever is now not only listen-able (is that a word) but awesome. Crystal clear perfect vocals from Lzzy. Can’t wait to hear the Manson cover.

      The original is a guilty pleasure of mine. Love this version. Love that Lzzy and the boys do stuff like this. Can’t wait to hear the other songs. :o)

    Lzzy and the boys can do no wrong! Another amazing cover! I am looking forward to hearing the rest of this EP…specially the Gold Dust Woman cover! Hole and Sister Hazel both did great covers of that tune, but i expect this one will blow both of those covers away!
