Crushtone Music artist Gavin the Third will be releasing a cover of Queen’s Death on Two Legs. Queen originally released the song in 1975 on their chart smashing album A Night at the Opera. Gavin more than does this song justice by giving it an updated feel while still re-producing the original magnetism of the song. “I was really excited about recording this song. I didn’t take the task too lightly because I knew I had to live up to expectations and listeners would be comparing it to the original,” says Gavin.
About Gavin the Third:
Gavin the Third is a rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. The music revolves around the lead vocalist/guitarist Gavin Cushman III who is also the primary songwriter of the group. Gavin writes songs that combine introspective compositions of personal struggle with hard hitting Alt/Rock, tapping directly into the vein of Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, and Queens of the Stone Age. The band is rounded out with Drummer Brett Weir, Gavin’s older brother Andrew Cushman on Guitar, and bassist John Pellegrino. Gavin’s demos, which he wrote and recorded in his apartment, drew the attention of producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple, Alien Ant Farm, and others) who pushed for Gavin to make his debut record with a big studio sound. In 2013, Gavin the Third entered Crushtone Studios in Cleveland with Wirt to record that self-titled EP. The CD was recently released on Crushtone Music Inc. and features five powerful songs that come across even better live. Gavin the Third is a band that will make you take notice
