THE OVERSEER premiere video for ‘Amend’
Debut album We Search, We Dig out June 19th from Solid State Records
June 12, 2012 – With a week to go until the release of We Search, We Dig, Arkansas hard rockers THE OVERSEER are premiering their new video for “Amend” – one of the standout tracks from their dynamic debut, available in stores and online June 19th from Solid State Records.
The video, directed by UNDER0ATH’s Daniel Davidson (ISTHMUS Studios), puts stunning visuals alongside the standout track. Since premiering last month, “Amend” has generated an online buzz for the band’s ability to mix soaring melody with blistering riffs and package that into compact songs that feel neither redundant nor self-indulgent.
“I have mixed emotions about shooting this music video,” says drummer Abishai Collingsworth. “It was one of the most fun yet exhausting days I’ve ever been through. Make no mistake – playing through a song 100 or so times can wear you out! But we endured it and are really pleased with the results. Daniel Davidson was really easy to work with and I certainly wouldn’t be disappointed if we worked with him again!”
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 around the corner, 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.
