THE OVERSEER premiere ‘Dreamer’


Second new track available to be streamed from new album

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


A week after giving fans a first taste of what lies in store on their captivating debut album, We Search, We Dig, Arkansas hard rockers THE OVERSEER are unveiling another track for public consumption today by pulling the curtain back on “Dreamer.”


One of the album’s most full-throttle, go-for-the-throat tracks, “Dreamer” still manages to showcase THE OVERSEER’S penchant for taming chaos with melody, giving the song room to breathe even while bludgeoning listeners with relentless riffs.

Listen to ‘Dreamer’:
“‘Dreamer’ brings the album title to life,” vocalist Anthony Rivera explains excitedly, “searching for the anwsers after death and digging up the truth behind it. We wanted to write a fast and aggressive song betraying the lyrics that drove it and ‘Dreamer’ was the result!”

We really wanted a change of pace with this song,” adds drummer Abishai Collingswoth. “Something up-beat, aggressive and pissed-off to add diversity to the record.”

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 DigTHE OVERSEER is firmly planting their flag as a future genre frontrunner.

HM covers from over the years

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.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

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.
