From Frontiers:

Inglorious will release their first ever covers album, "Heroine" on September 10, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl. The album sees the band tackling covers by a varied selection of female artists whom they respect and admire.

Additionally, the band will play A Newday Festival on August 22nd, Stormin The Castle on September 4th, and head out on a headline run in September and October before playing Winterstorm on November 26th. Latest tour dates for the band and links to buy tickets can be found HERE: http://inglorious.com/#tourdates

"Miley [Cyrus] has tons of great songs, but is clearly a rocker to the core. We are all about the female empowerment in this modern classic and it has one of those choruses you can't help but singing along to," says vocalist Nathan James of the album's first single, 'Midnight Sky'. 

Hot on the heels of the successful February 2021 release of Inglorious' fourth studio album, “We Will Ride”, their first with the new line-up of Nathan James, Phil Beaver, Danny De La Cruz, Dan Stevens, and Vinnie Colla, the band headed right back into the studio to record a very special new album. The up-and-coming British hard rockers' new release, titled “Heroine,” is a tribute to the various outstanding female musicians who have influenced the band either musically and/or vocally. From putting their own hard rock imprint on pop hits from Whitney Houston, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, and Christina Aguilera to taking on timeless classic rock songs by Tina Turner, Heart, and Joan Jett, and contemporary rock by the likes of Evanescence, Alanis Morissette, and Halestorm, Inglorious showcase their versatility with the song selections for this covers album. 

"First things first, we know it is impossible to make these songs better, the originals are perfect and the performances legendary, so acknowledging that we weren't even gonna come close to the magic of the originals took the pressure off and we could just enjoy making this super fun album. It's about bowing to these incredible artists and, for me personally, saying thank you for sharing their gifts with the world. People assume that the singers I idolise are bluesy rock men, but they couldn't be more wrong. Everyone of these artists has inspired me as a performer, writer, singer, or person. Whether it be the unbeatable voice of Whitney, the charisma of Tina, the honesty of Alanis, the intensity of Lzzy, or the control of Amy Lee. I love the fire all these women bring to their music and that's what we wanted to say thanks for. Not only to these artists, but the awesome women in all of our lives who have loved us and continue to support us. With this in mind we are donating a pound from every copy sold on our webstore to the fantastic charity Women's Aid (https://www.womensaid.org.uk/), who do amazing work supporting women and young girls," says vocalist Nathan James.

that does not work as a rock song imo 

I don't mind it. There's a couple of interesting songs on here that I'll entertain. I don't like covers albums either, but if bands do something a little different - in a good way - I don't always completely hate it. 

I'll be interested to hear 'I'm With You' of this lot.

I love a good cover track and I'm looking forward to this.

As Geoff said, I'm interested to hear "I'm With You".

Also, "Barracuda", "Nutbush" and "Bring Me To Life".

The original "Nutbush City Limits" kicks major arse!

"Barracuda" was one of the ones I was looking forward to.

The original is EPIC!

They do a great job, but it doesn’t compare to the BEYOND EPIC! version by "Adrenaline Mob".

The Inglorious version is alright but definitely nowhere near Heart's version.  

Don't care for that Adrenaline Mob version at all.

This is one of the versions I've been looking forward to. 

It's a great version. I still prefer the original. That is a beautiful song.

I think it's better with Avril's vocals, but this is a worthy tribute.

BTW, I've just realized the meaning behind the album name.

Yeah, I agree. Good version of a great song. Original still better, but this is nice.
