    Kneebody have released By Fire, a five-song EP of covers. Tracks include Soundgarden’s grunge classic, “Black Hole Sun,” and John Legend’s 2013 cut, “Hold on Longer.”

    The US-based group were accompanied by a different guest vocalist for every song—Michael Mayo, for instance, helped them cover Hiatus Kaiyote’s “By Fire” and Becca Stevens assisted on their rendition of Wye Oak’s “Sick Talk.”

    The By Fire EP sees Kneebody start operations as a quartet with the departure of bassist Kaveh Rastegar (drummer Nate Wood will take over his bass duties). The group also plan to release an original album later this year.
