Following last year's take on Gerard McMahon's Lost Boys hit Cry Little Sister, Zetra have released a cover of The Cure's Burn.

The corpse-painted synth-rock duo's take on the track, written for the 1994 Brandon Lee ultra-goth movie The Crow, comes head of their forthcoming dates with Creeper and NAUT next month.

Commenting on the track, the enigmatic pair said:

"From three decades of ash, a Fire is rekindled. Around the Flame, Zetra build an altar. Pray with us. Dream the crow black dream."

The band, who recently announced their signing to powerhouse metal label Nuclear Blast, have a busy couple of months ahead, hitting the road with both Creeper and Ville Valo.
