Local cover band The Merkins cover Alice In Chains

Dublin’s own The Merkins, composed of husband-wife duo Phil and Marta Demmrel,  bring us this awesome cover of Alice In Chain’s “NoExcuses.” Phil added:

“No Excuses is song I had been wanting to cover with our cover band “The Merkins”. On the anniversary of Layne’s passing (April 5th), I asked Marta if she would want to record it in our home studio where it would be the 1st vocals I’ve recorded there and her 1st time recording a lead vocal track. It was a fun learning experience so we asked our friends, Dave McClain (Sacred Reich, MH) and Eric Bass (Shinedown) to help complete the track. We’ve decided to share that experience with you all knowing that its far from perfect, as we all as humans are. I’ll be adding a ton of video content in the coming weeks. LOTS of cool things on the docket. Thanks to Scott Kirkeeng for the Vid edit and to Juan Urteaga for the quick mix. Much love and respect to Jerry, Mike, Sean and Layne for creating such a beautiful song. RIP LS”
