The band initially recorded a cover of the Gordon Lightfoot classic for fun. Guitarist Mark Briody explained ‘I grew up loving The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I loved the haunting melody and the epic and tragic storyline. It was a song that shaped my view on music for the rest of my life. I was listening to it one day when a new arrangement just popped into my head. I called the guys and we got together the next weekend and recorded the song’. The song was well received by Century Media and released on limited edition 7″ vinyl.
