‘The Overseer’ Announce New Album “Rest and Let Go”


Rest and Let Go 2014Arkansas hard rockers The Overseer recently announced the release of their sophomore album, “Rest and Let Go”, available March 4 via Solid State Records.

Rest and Let Go finds the band re-teaming with Matt McClellen at Glow in the Dark Studio’s, where they had recorded their 2012 debut, “We Search, We Dig”. The celebrated album drew praise from taste-makers such as Revolver, who characterized it as “heavily textured metalcore that balances brutality with beauty,” while Outburn declared, “The Overseer has burst onto the scene with a head-turning and memorable debut.”

Much like the band itself, “Rest and Let Go”, is bursting with life. It’s a fearless, ferocious album that bubbles with urgency and vitality. It’s ironic, then, that the album centers so intensely on the polar opposite: Death. “It kinda creeps its way into everyone’s life at some point, and it found a way to creep into our record,” says guitarist/vocalist Darren King. “Death is such a big part of life and unfortunately we’ve had our fair share of dealing with it. I guess that’s just where a few of us were and are.”

Fans can get a first taste of the album today in the form of the tense album opener ‘Fragile Wings’,  which can be streamed below “‘Fragile Wings’ is a song that really captures a lot of elements,” King explains. “It’s driving, but laid back. It’s heavy, but ambient. It’s dark, but has some presence of hope. She’s not sure what she wants to be, but it kinda works for her.”
