Of the cover, vocalist, Neufeld,shares, “We recorded the cover for "Territorial Pissings" while inthe studio for our last album's Die Knowing sessions. We've sat on the song forover a year now and were able to include it in the ‘Rain City Sessions + 1’Record Store Day 10 inch.”
He continues, “‘Territorial Pissings’in my eyes has always been the most aggressive Nirvana song and we had wantedto cover it for a while. It started with just jamming it during soundcheck,which led to it creeping into our sets, and we recorded it on a whim…keepingtrue to its original form. We didn't mess with it much just tried to do itjustice.”
