The Promise Ring

The A.V. Club’s Undercover video series, which matches up bands with unlikely covers, has really hit on something great with its latest installment: Reunited emo pioneers the Promise Ring enlisting an extra drummer and doing Adele’s inescapable Brit-soul radio nugget “Rumour Has It” as a shouty, drunken punk rock singalong, one significantly tougher and louder than most actual Promise Ring songs. Watch it below.

The Promise Ring play their last show of 2012 at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest in November, and Stereogum will so totally be there.
