Arkansas metalcore band The Overseer has been signed to Solid State Records. Inspired by bands like Thrice and Underoath, The Overseer have three goals with their music: To elevate, to transport the listener to a place that’s emotionally honest … and to stir up one hell of a mess in the moshpit.
“Growing up, I would buy any record they put out and was never disappointed,” vocalist Anthony Rivera says of his new label home. “Signing with them has been a dream come true.”
Solid State’s A&R rep Adam Skatula had this to say about the band:
“THE OVERSEER’S commitment to touring and their exciting live shows over the past couple years made them stand out to me. They’re able to stay on the road all year, and the energy in the room when they play is truly remarkable. After hearing the first few tracks from their debut record, we’re extremely proud to have them be a part of the Solid State family.”
The band is currently recording their as-yet-untitled debut album in Atlanta’s Glow in the Dark Studios. Their debut single “Secrets” is the first taste of the upcoming album and it is available for a free download here.
Vocalist Anthony Rivera had this to say about the debut single:
“Everyone almost always has a secret or something to hide, and it eats you up inside. The best thing to do is to let it out – to ‘come clean,’ as the end of the song proclaims. The song is a good blend of our heavier side, which is everyone’s initial take on the band, and a bit of our softer side which I feel really bleeds out well in our upcoming debut record!”
