Fueled by observations and frustrations of the socio-political climate and day-to-day personal experience of navigating existence in an uncertain world, Overstand's music brings hope; it lets you know you're not alone in your struggle. These guys are fighting the good fight. Giving a nod to trailblazers of truth and revolution that came before them - Bad Brains, Cro-Mags, Shelter and Rage Against the Machine – their live show is brutal yet uplifting pushing the ultrasonic parameters of hardcore. Front man Shawn Zappo's on stage presence has been likened to "a young Ian MacKaye in Minor Threat. Charismatic.
Powerful. Emotional" and "Rollins-era Black Flag". Complimented by the urgency, passion and skills of Brian, Jon and Miles they're well on their way to becoming one of the brightest lights in the rebel music landscape. Once every so often a band like Overstand comes along that really cares, inspires you and challenges what you think you know. They encourage you to be a leader not a follower, to think outside the confines of hardcore and to forge your own path.
Overstand give you the chance to be a part of something that really matters. They inspire you to ask, why? And then gives you the motivation to do something about it. Overstand is an unstoppable force that is here to shake modern heavy music from its moorings. -Bianca Valentino (Author, Musician, Awesome Human Being!) __________________________________________________________ Please visit: www.myspace.com/overstandnj and www.myspace.com/theessencehc for more info Debut 7" in out now thru The Essence Records.
