Ovtlier is continuing its growth.
The independent band, which has already built a name for itself with the singles ‘Who We Are‘ and ‘Buried Me Alive‘ has signed a new distribution deal. The new deal is with Zoid Entertainment. It will see the company release ‘Who We Are’ Oct. 23 through INgrooves.
Zoid Entertainment President Peter Tsiolis spoke highly of Ovtlier in discussing the new deal.
“When their manager (Dennis Sanders) played Who We are, we felt this was a project on which we wanted to work,” said Tsiolis. “As we continued to discuss what role we could play in the band’s future we decided we wanted Ovtlier to be part of what is an extremely limited roster of bands that we want to have on the label side of Zoid Entertainment Group.”
“We believe Who We Are is a beginning full of promise,” added Tsiolis. “The hook is infectious, and the lyrics will speak to today’s youth in a way that has been missing in recent years. With the release of the track on October 23rd, we start the journey together with Ovtlier and INgrooves.”
Front man Joey Arena talked about the song during the band’s interview with Alt Press in July when the band debuted the song and its video through the magazine.
“Who We Are” is about accepting the individuality of ourselves and others,” he said. “Understanding that trauma, especially stemming back to childhood plays a vital role in the years to come of ones life. We all have things that shape and make us into who and what we are.”
According to information in the noted interview, the band worked with Ice Nine Kills member Justin “JD” deBlieck on the song, just as with the band’s most recent single, ‘Buried Me Alive.’
The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Who We Are’ is, like its predecessor, a melodic hard rock composition that also incorporates a certain aggro-rock element into the mix to make the song whole.
‘Who We Are’ is available to stream and download here.
