TOOTHGRINDER RELEASE COVER OF FLEETWOOD MAC’S “THE CHAIN”


unnamed (9)New Jersey noisemakers Toothgrinder have released their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.” Listen here.

“As a child, my father’s three favorite groups were Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Fleetwood Mac, and The Allman Brothers,” said singer Justin Matthews. “I grew accustomed to southern rock from an early age. As a lyricist, I subconsciously write in that frame of mind. I LOVE a good story written through song. Fleetwood Mac in particular has always held a special place in my heart.”

The singer put things in perspective and further revealed how Fleetwood Mac impacted his process as a lyricist, saying, “During the making of Phantom Amour, I needed a break from the recording process to go clear my head. I cruised down to Luray, Virginia through the skyline drive to get some perspective on what I was doing. I parked myself on a stool at an Irish pub somewhere in town. Half in the bag, I listened to Fleetwood Mac’s ‘The Chain.’ I then began writing the lyrics to our ballad ‘Jubilee.’ There is something about associating music with my surroundings that has always captivated me. Music to me has always seemed like a fantastical theme song to a particular point in time. I wanted to pay homage to the legends that helped me write my favorite and most personal song yet.”
