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.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
