I called the song that Travis James & The Acrimonious Assembly Of Arsonists covered by The Blood Feud Family Singers, Let Me Down and Lay Me Down, “The greatest love song ever written” once upon a time in the Phoenix New Times. While the song that Blood Feud decided to cover by Travis James, “Everybody Dies” is a tune that highlights Travis’s more theatrical qualities better than most.

Travis James rave about Blood Feud’s version of his dramatic track off his 2014 release Overdressed and Under Arrest. He said the tune was performed in the way he thought of it when he first wrote the track. While James and his arsonists offer what is essentially a pop-punk rendition of Blood Feud’s 2015 folk-noir masterpiece. Check this bad boy out, it’s less than 8-minutes of music, but it’s  absolutely terrific.
