Lightworker Releases ‘Crawling In The Dark’ (Hoobastank Cover)


Lightworker have released their cover of Hoobastank‘s track ‘Crawling In The Dark‘, which opened the latter’s 2001 platinum-certified self-titled album. Speaking of their take on the song, Lightworker states:

When we were looking for a song to cover, we knew we wanted to go with something that already had some heavy elements in it but without it being a “metal” song. “Crawling in the Dark” is a classic early 2000’s song that contains those elements and hasn’t been revisited for a long time. We were really excited about it when we first brought it up because it influenced our love for riffs and paved the way for heavier styles that we all enjoy today. We had a blast recording it, and we think you’ll dig it, too!

The song is available for streaming below.

Lightworker is a metal band from San Francisco, CA. The group—comprised of Joe CalderonGrayson Hurd, Ryan Johnson, and Brad Green—formed from the remnants of former bands, finding creative unity together and a mutual passion for heavy music.

After releasing the EP ‘Resilience’, Lightworker began working on what would become their first full-length record, ‘Fury By Failure’. The album is raw yet refined, fusing together elements of metal and post-hardcore with a balance of melodic and aggressive tones. Their music is passionate and impactful, carrying a clear sense of purpose that far surpasses the stage. Their goal is to offer a quiet sense of hope in a blisteringly broken world, proving heavy music can carry a lightness all its own.

The band’s Solid State Records debut, “Fury By Failure“ has been released on June 12th. 2020
