Paradise City band The Relentless have covered The Smashing Pumpkins
Ahead of the release of American Satan spin-off Paradise City this month, the show’s band The Relentless have covered The Smashing Pumpkins’ classic Disarm.
Voiced by Remington Leith of Palaye Royale, The Relentless are made up of fictional characters Johnny Faust (played by Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack), Leo Donovan (Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce), Lily Mayflower (Bella Thorne), Vic Lakota (Booboo Stewart) and Dylan James (Asking Alexandria’s James Cassells).
Creator, writer and director Ash Avildsen (who also founded Sumerian Records) says of Paradise City: “More than one in four American kids grow up without a father in their home.
“For kids that grow up with one parent, you can go on one of two paths: you can blame the world, your parents, blame God, blame lack of God, or it can light a fire under you that you’re gonna make it no matter what. Paradise City is the show made to inspire these millions of teenagers and young adults. It reminds us that there is no light without darkness, that sorrow and heartbreak can be the greatest drivers of art. It reminds us that there is always hope, that you are never alone and that music is always there if you let it be.
“Almost everything in Paradise City is inspired by real events I have experienced growing up in an unorthodox single mom household as a kid estranged from his famous father and then my adult life becoming self-made in the ruthless music industry. Supernatural elements that have guided and misguided my life ever since moving to Los Angeles are also prevalent throughout the tale.”
Season one of Paradise City will hit Amazon Prime Video on March 25.
