Since 2019, pop punk icons Bowling For Soup have been celebrating their 25th anniversary by releasing a series of awesome cover songs. The band has had a lot of fun covering artists such as Social Distortion, The Eagles, and Kanye West. The latest song that the band has put out is a cover of the late 90s hit, “Where’s The Love’ by US sibling trio Hansen. However this time unlike their previous covers, the Hansen brothers have also joined the group along on the track providing vocals.
Frontman Jaret Reddick spoke about how this came to be by saying:
“Taylor Hanson and I have been friends for a long while. So when when Chris threw the idea of “Where’s The Love” into our “cover songs to record” mix, I thought, “Never hurts to ask!” Those guys stay BUSY! The idea was for Taylor to sing the bridge. You can imagine our surprised when he sent it back with himself, Isaac and Zac all singing on the song! And WAY above and beyond what we had asked.
Our voices sound so cool together, and hearing them sing over the huge guitars is freakin amazing! I have high hopes for this one!”
Bowling For Soup returned to the world of live shows this past weekend in Texas, playing their first full band, full capacity crowd gig since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
