Solid State Records signs The Overseer

Tuesday, January 17, 2012 4:49 PM PT

Official press release:

Solid State Records is pleased to announce the addition of Arkansas road warriors The Overseer to its roster of trendsetting acts.

The surging hard rock outfit has been dominating the Southern underground circuit as of late with a relentless touring schedule and a rousing catalog of pummeling riffage, savage breakdowns and vocal cord-rupturing vocals. Inspired by bands like Thrice and Underoath, The Overseer have three goals with their music: To elevate, to transport the listener to a place that's emotionally honest ... and to stir up one hell of a mess in the moshpit.

All of those elements are on full technicolor display in the band's debut single "Secrets," available for download on iTunes beginning today. The song is the first taste of The Overseer's as-yet-untitled debut album, being recorded now in Atlanta's Glow in the Dark Studios.

"Everyone almost always has a secret or something to hide, and it eats you up inside," says vocalist Anthony Rivera of "Secrets." "The best thing to do is to let it out - to 'come clean,' as the end of the song proclaims. The song is a good blend of our heavier side, which is everyone's initial take on the band, and a bit of our softer side which I feel really bleeds out well in our upcoming debut record!"
