THE OVERSEER debut ‘Vulture’ exclusively at Revolver


New track streaming now at revolvermag.com

Debut album We Search, We Dig out June 19th from Solid State Records


June 14, 2012 Just days after the release of their new video for “Amend,” THE OVERSEER bring another hard rock reckoning in the form of “Vulture” – the third preview track from their upcoming debut, We Search, We Dig – streaming now via heavy music taste-maker Revolver.

“Vulture” finds the Arkansas outfit firing on all cylinders with all the the traits for which they’ll soon be known on full display – pummeling riffage seamlessly giving way to expansive melody anchored by a knack for knowing when to let the song breathe and when to reach back and smack the listener in the face.


Listen to ‘Vulture’:
“‘Vulture’ was the last song that we wrote for the album,” says bassist Bradley Riggs. “We actually wrote it in the studio and it turned out great, with a hard-hitting intro and a bridge that was unlike anything we’d done before. It has a heavy DEFTONES sort of feel to it and I think listeners will hear the versatility of our influences and writing style.”

Recorded earlier this year at Atlanta’s Glow In The Dark studios, We Search, We Dig is a huge, dynamic debut that calls to mind artists like UNDER0ATH, THRICE and CAVE IN though with a clear, distinct voice that never emulates those artists directly. With this release, THE OVERSEER delivers hard-hitting, uncompromising hard rock that belies the members’ young age. This isn’t “cash in on the latest trend” music, it’s “sweat and tears” hard rock, with a little blood thrown in for good measure.

Now, with the album’s release on the horizon, THE OVERSEER has gone back to doing the OTHER thing they do best: Tour, tour and tour, taking their music and their spiritually-minded message to eager fans. In support of the album, the band will hit the road this June and July as part of the More Than Sound tour, headlined by WAR OF AGES.


With the release of We Search, We Dig, THE OVERSEER is firmly planting their flag as a future genre frontrunner.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
