Corey Taylor announces CMFB-Sides featuring nine unreleased tracks

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on February 11, 2022

The collection includes covers of Metallica, Dead Boys, KISS and Eddie Money classics kicked off with the release of John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band’s “On The Dark Side”.

Adding to his CMFT-chapter in an already storied career, venerated frontman, songwriter and multi-talent Corey Taylor has unveiled a collection of acoustic renditions and live versions of classic covers appropriately dubbed, CMFB-Sides.

Set to arrive on February 25th via Roadrunner Records, the compilation includes some nine previously unreleased tunes showcasing a broad spectrum of artists that inspired the band. Spanning from punk pioneers Dead Boys to the spectacle of KISS, from the blue collar backbone of Eddie Money to the brass tacks of Metallica – Taylor and the band take on these timeless tracks with reverence and vigor that proof both powerful and throughly convincing.

in addition, CMFB-Sides features acoustic variations of both “Kansas” and “Halfway Down,” essential selections from Taylor’s 2020 full-length debut, CMFT. Also featured on the compilation is a moving  live medley of “Home” and Stone Sour’s beloved finale in “Zzyxz Rd.” that underscore the breadth of Taylor’s impact as influential songwriter in his own right.

To properly introduce the compilation’s release, Taylor along with the band have dropped the first single from the effort with a cover of John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band’s “On The Dark Side” made famous via the 1983 film Eddie and the Cruisers. The track is now available now via preferred streaming platform.

Coupled with the first single, Taylor will release a performance video of the live “Home” / “Zzyxz Rd” medley, shot during last year’s history-making Forum Or Against ‘Em livestream event. Fans will not have to wait long as the video is set to arrive on Valentine’s Day, February 14th. Fans can visit Taylor’s official YouTube channel to view the visual.

CMFB-Sides arrives February 25th on Roadrunner Records and is now available for pre-order – HERE.
