Hot Press is delighted to premiere the Suspects & Guests’ take on Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The River’, which has been recorded in support of the Bolger Brothers Tragedy Fund and will be available from iTunes tomorrow.
All proceeds will go to support the families of Paul (50), Kenny (47) and Shane Bolger (45) from Passage East who tragically died last month when their boat capsised in heavy seas off the coast of Tramore.
Comprising of Propeller Palms, Solar Taxi, Kodakid and The Unusual Suspects, the Waterford supergroup have given the Boss classic a unique Irish flavour whilst staying true to the original.
The Springsteen camp have officially given the cover their blessing and volunteered to accept a greatly reduced royalty rate.
It’d be a wonderful tribute to the lads if come next week the song was to find its way into the official Irish chart.
