I'd personally like to thank everyone that has contributed to the series thus far, it wouldn't be what it is without you and that's an understatement. Each song took on personalities of their own as we celebrated old familiars that we've loved. Thanks for investing your time and art into this very rewarding project we call Covert Stations!
  Also, I'd like to genuinely thank the press outlets that have covered us. It's a grueling process to get press coverage, anyone on the inside of band world or labeldom will attest to. Those of you that have come through willingly to cover the series, so that eyes and ears can hear the work we've put in are extremely appreciated.
-Craig Cirinelli

Covert Stations is an ever-flexing band collective with line-ups brought together by vocalist Craig Cirinelli, per song of choice. A widespread cast of musicians have been called upon to collaborate on classic songs from the '80s, spin them through a bombastic, effects-laden, '90s rock blender, and present them in a way we think rips, sonically. With the mission statement of revamping and stamping these covers with our own mark, the focus is not to step on, yet step from, these true classics while having fun getting into one another's heads about the songs in this rolling singles series. Each collaborative line-up will be announced coinciding each released single.

Fifth cover out now:

"It Must Have Been Love" (Roxette cover) - December 16, 2022


Musicians taking part in each single track their parts at their own chosen recording stations, then send in stems to be mixed cohesively at Portrait Recording Studios, followed by mastering at Sun Room Audio.
