Students from the O’Keefe Music Foundation have released a video of them performing the Tool classic “Sober,” shown below, and it completely kicks ass.
The students include kids from a range of grades, including a couple of youngsters who work in tandem to operate the pump organ that opens the haunting track. The students did a bit of revising to the tune, adding a bridge and an alternate ending that serve the song well.
O’Keefe was also behind a student-made cover of Tool’s “46 & 2” from a couple of years back, which is also shown below. According to Loudwire, the foundation is currently raising funds for new projects that include videos, digital downloads and vinyl releases. The school is reportedly considering covering Tool’s “Lateralus,” Slipknot’s “Duality” and music from Guns N’ Roses, Danzig and others.
The group has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund its projects. Enjoy the videos, and feel free to visit their campaign page to help out.
