Overbass creates a whole new world of original sounds and crazy rhythms inspired by international folklore, hardcore, punk and metal music with lyrics in English, French and Spanish. The band likes to call itself a “multicultural hardcore hybrid”. REVOLUTION, their fourth album to date, was produced together with Overbass respected friend Fermin Muguruza and is a scream for revolution and for hope and faith to those who are oppressed as well as to those who achieved true freedom. Featuring guest appearances from the punk girls band Beauty Drop Out and from Nathalie Raymond of Kaleidoscopik’s fame, REVOLUTION is packed with Triple-A tracks (including a sensational cover of Cindy Lauper's hit “Girls just wanna have fun!”) and is sure to transform your sonic karma and introduce you to a whole new kind of music experience.
