THE OVERSEER premiere video for "Absolve"
Debut album We Search, We Dig out now on Solid State Records
On tour now in support of AUGUST BURNS RED, OF MICE & MEN and THE COLOR MORALE
September 5, 2012 - Arkansas hard rockers THE OVERSEER have removed the veil from their brand new video for standout track “Absolve” - their second video off their debut album, We Search, We Dig, released earlier this summer on Solid State Records.
The lauded album has been praised by tastemakers like Revolver, who called the band’s music “heavily textured metalcore that balances brutality with beauty,” and Outburn, who trumpeted that “THE OVERSEER has burst onto the scene with a head turning and memorable debut.”
The video was shot live at the band’s hometown CD release show in July.
“The passion behind this song made a live setting perfect for the video,” says vocalist Anthony Rivera. “It was awesome to see so many kids singing along with me and seeing that the song’s lyrics mean as much to them as they do to me.”
The band is currently on the road in the midst of a five week, 30 city North American tour in support of labelmates AUGUST BURNS RED plus OF MICE & MEN and THE COLOR MORALE.
Released this past June, 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.
