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.

Ovtlier Debuts ‘Who We Are’ Video

Ovtlier debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Who We Are’ Friday through altpress.com.  The video features the band performing its single against the backdrop of a campfire scene.  As the band performs, the story is told of a couple that is very much in love, but also is going through some very stressful situations.  That imagery plays into the song’s lyrical theme, which front man Joey Arena talked about during the band’s interview with Alt Press.

“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.’

Ovtlier Debuts ‘Buried Me Alive’ Re-Issue Video

Independent hard rock band Ovtlier debuted the video for the re-issue of its 2019 single ‘Buried Me Alive’ this month.

The band debuted the video for the single’s re-issue June 24.  The song’s musical arrangement presents an aggro-rock style approach through its tuned down guitar, heavy bass and drums, and hybrid screaming/singing vocals.

Front man Joey Arena talked about the song’s regeneration and its lyrical theme in a recent interview, noting that despite the song’s visualization, it is not actually about a relationship gone bad or even literally being buried alive.

“Buried Me Alive” is a personal favorite and great representation of Ovtlier,” he said.  “I chose to re-record Buried in 2019 (release in 2020) because I knew there was a lot of life left and it deserved to be heard. It was written by myself and Evan McKeever and produced by Justin “JD” de Blieck of Ice Nine Kills. It was a great experience to revisit a song from years ago only to see how much you grow as a musician and vocalist. It’s a test to oneself. Lyrically, the song is about my love for music but hate for the industry. It can almost take the love out of the art if you let it, chew you up and spit you out. Like life, we must roll with the punches and continue on.”

‘Buried Me Alive’ is available to stream and download here.
