STS9 Debut Blondie Cover with Members of Umphrey’s McGee
STS9 got some help from Umphrey’s McGee during their co-headlining show last night for their first-ever cover of Blondie’s classic “Heart of Glass.” Brendan Bayliss, Jake Cinninger and Ryan Stasik joined the band for the tune during middle of their set at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, GA.
Kenny Barto of hip-hop production trio the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League also sat in with STS9 for a take on “Vapors” that segued into a set closing “Rent.” The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, who have produced tracks for Drake, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Mary J. Blidge and many more, worked with STS9 on their forthcoming (though currently untitled) studio album.
