New England-based, progressive metal outfit Caricature is the brainchild of multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Joseph Spiller. The project has been making waves in the metal underground for a decade and it’s only going to continue to do so with their heavy rock cover of the 1980s Eddie Money classic, “Take Me Home Tonight”.
The new single is a totally awesome cover and the accompanying music video features stunning aerial camera footage created especially for this clip by noted drone technology innovator and cinematographer Kirk Tindel.

Caricature’s Joseph Spiller gives his take on the track: “Sometimes, when you make a record that you need to be as perfect as possible, you have to step back, take a break, and stretch your creative legs on something fun. Rather than smash up the studio, channeling the magic of ‘The Money Man’ seemed more productive. The hook on this song is iron clad with one of the best second verses the mainstream has ever seen. I wanted to add something fresh to the arrangement without degrading the original piece, and the end result is fun as heck to play.”
