OVERDOSE - Hit The Road 7"
If you like ripping rock & roll that's built to be blasted with the pedal to the floor in a Seventies muscle car, then turn off Tool's Fear Inoculum and grab a copy of Overdose's new Hit the Road 7-inch, streaming in full here at Revolver. The band features members of Speedwolf, Mutilation Rites and Pyrolatrous, and while the influences on this release are fairly obvious — bands like Motörhead, Girlschool, Venom and Midnight are all part of the conversation — what the NYC-based four-piece do the best isn't just recreate a style, but capture the dangerous spirit of it all. "Took the Deal" and "Hit the Road" are perfect for breaking glass, shotgunning beers and causing general mayhem — basically, the perfect soundtrack for Labor Day Weekend.
"Our second single is more of the same," admits vocalist-guitarist Reed Bruemmer. "One fast song. One mid-paced. All of our influences released singles for years before their debut full-length, so why wouldn't we? Rock & roll in heavy small format at optimum 45 RPM."
