The Veer Union Salute Chester Bennington With Acoustic “Numb” Cover

The Veer Union cover for Numb

As we approach the one year anniversary of Chester Bennington’s death (July 20, 2017), The Veer Union are paying tribute to the late Linkin Park vocalist with an acoustic cover of “Numb” from their upcoming Decade 2: Rock and Acoustic album.

Singer Crispin Earl says, “I decided to do this cover not only because everyone in The Veer Union are huge fans of Linkin Park and wanted to honor Chester Bennington and his immense contribution to the world with his voice and music, but on a personal level I have also struggled with depression which I have written and talked openly about for years. The song ‘Numb’ has always spoken to me on very personal level and all I can hope is that we did some justice to it, to pay homage to Chester. It was a tremendous loss, and he will live in our hearts and souls forever.”

The cover itself is now available to download via iTunes. Meanwhile, the Decade 2: Rock and Acoustic disc is on track for an August 31st release, revisiting many of their best songs in both electric and acoustic renditions.

The Veer Union will hit the road in late August, just ahead of the new album release, sharing stages with Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, Tantric and Shallow Side. Dates for the run can be viewed below:
