METALLICA, GUNS N’ ROSES, LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN, AC/DC Classics Get ‘Hillbillified’ On STEVE’N’SEAGULLS’ ‘Farm Machine’

steveseagullsWhat became a genuine international viral phenomenon actually started out on a farm in central Finland; in a barn, to be precise…

There, a bunch of like-minded countrymen — with the emphasis on “country” — played a customized version of AC/DC‘s “Thunderstruck” using homespun instrumentation, everything from banjo picking to anvil bangin’ to achieve their original take on a classic. They filmed the event, posted the results on YouTube, and within a couple of weeks, the clip had accumulated over five million views. It’s now topped out at 10 million.

Pretty impressive, right?

For STEVE’N’SEAGULLS, this was a bolt from the blue, but then, as history shows us, the greatest stories ever told tend to start in a stable… Yes, a stable.

Now, the band is gearing up to release “Farm Machine” via Spinefarm on May 12.

“Finally it’s complete!” exclaims the band. “And the fruits of our labour please us. We are now preparing to take on the world!”

The band has just revealed the video for its version on another AC/DC stalwart — “You Shook Me All Night Long”. The clip features hilarious moments in the barn, as well as awkward moments at the ice hockey rink.

If you need a refresher on who, exactly, STEVE’N’SEAGULLS are, then settle in and get schooled.
