“It was like a flash of inspiration that flashed through my head a few weeks ago when I saw a report about Klaus Meine (singer of the Scorpions) declaring “It’s time for a fresh Wind of Change!”,” says Andy (guitarist and producer). I knew he was correct, and I started working on the first demo version in my studio that same day.”
“We were all ecstatic when Andy showed us the first concepts, and we all agreed that we had to finish this! We recorded further demos and eventually received Klaus Meine’s permission to make and release our own version of ‘Wind Of Change’!”
“Music is a universal language that unites us all, is understood by all, and brings us closer together. We must all stick together and look out for one another, especially in difficult times like these! This cover represents our personal effort to spreading hope and uniting listeners all across the world, including those outside of Ukraine!”
“For these reasons, we used the Scorpions’ live lyrics for the verses during their April US tour. With this, we plainly declare our opposition to the war. This unnecessary war baffles us; it leaves us speechless, and all we can do is hope and pray that it would cease as quickly as possible!”
“We’d also like to express our gratitude to all of the volunteers who give their all every day and risk their lives to assist war victims!”
“‘Wind Of Change’ has long been a unique peace anthem. A hymn that each and every one of us hears throughout our lives. It is a tremendous honor for us to be able to incorporate this piece of music history into our own unique style.”
Despite their German heritage, they are living the American dream on any given day. They were founded in 2012, and their debut, »My Longest Way Home« (#28 on the official German album rankings), sparked notice in 2014. With 2016’s »Everlasting« (#14 on the official German album rankings), they boldly proved they were more than simply an internet sensation. ANY GIVEN DAY can also reflect on innumerable tours and gigs with bands like CALIBAN, BURY TOMORROW, TRIVIUM, or SUICIDE SILENCE on stages of all sizes, all of which have elicited euphoric reactions and a quickly rising fanbase that adorns the band.
ANY GIVEN DAY have polished their unique blend of untamed aggression, enticing melodies, and astonishing catchiness on »Overpower« (official German album charts: #19). Dennis Diehl, a one-of-a-kind vocalist who is surrounded by superb musicianship from his other band members, manages both yells and clean vocals. Dennis’ unusual, unique voice and huge vocal lines easily put any American radio rock artist to shame. Simply listen to any track on the album and you’ll hear the album’s foundation of pummeling, in-your-face current metal force and epic arcs of suspense – all wrapped up in an always positive message to latch on to.
