A Note from Austin:

"After spending 13 years as a Marine, I wanted to give back to the Corps in some way. I will always love the Marine Corps, the people, and what it stands for. I originally came up with this version of the song with a band I was with 6 years ago. It was such a big hit whenever we played it, Marines in the audience loved it and others that had never heard the Marine's Hymn before thought it was very catchy. My wife said to me one day, "You know the Marine's Hymn you used to play years ago? You should record it because there's a lot of people out there that will love it!" We chose to donate to the Semper Fi Fund simply because it just all seems to fit together. First of all, it would be really cool to use my musical abilities to help our Marine's and their families who are suffering from the effects of combat. Secondly, it's a song written by Marines, for Marines! I just wanted to keep the tradition going. I realize the musical genre this song won't appeal to everyone, but I wanted to create an upbeat remake to inspire and motivate Marines past and present. Please enjoy — because this one's for the Corps!"
