Ovtlier Debuts ‘All I Need’ Video

Ovtlier premiered the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single, ‘All I Need‘ Wednesday. The video’s premiere comes less than a week after the band premiered the song by itself.

The video features the band performing its new single in what looks like a darkened warehouse setting. That footage is paired with what is assumed to be a semi-autobiographical presentation of front man Joey Arena’s childhood.

That is assumed considering comments made by Arena in a prepared statement in a press release announcing the song’s premiere over the weekend.

“I was raised on unstable grounds,” the statement reads. “Therapy taught me to stop making excuses for those that have abused and abandoned me. A man that distantly titled himself as a “father” but neglected every simple duty of being one. A stepfather who looked for excuses to beat on me or throw me out for years. I accept that this is the hand that I am dealt. I respect and appreciate the journey I have been shaped and designed to travel. I am all I need”

It should be noted that some viewers may find some of the content in that main story unsettling. In other words, viewer discretion is advised. That imagery in question involves scenes of domestic disputes and one of the main characters flogging himself.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘All I need’ is of some interest. That is because the primary guitar line featured in this arrangement lends itself easily to comparison to that featured in Deftones’ hit song’ My Own Summer (Shove It).’ A close listen to each song reveals the similarity in sound. It is not precise, but is there.

As the arrangement progresses though, that guitar line gradually evolves and offers a heavy, dark sound that is complimented just as well by the song’s bass line and vocals from Arena.

In other news, Ovtlier is scheduled to serve as support for Gemini Syndrome on its upcoming headlining tour. Ovtlier’s dates with Gemini Syndrome are noted below.

Ovtlier premiered its latest single this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘All I Need‘ Thursday. The song boasts a unique musical arrangement. The primary guitar line featured in this arrangement lends itself easily to comparison to that featured in Deftones’ hit song’ My Own Summer (Shove It).’ A close listen to each song reveals the similarity in sound. It is not precise, but is there.

As the arrangement progresses though, that guitar line gradually evolves and offers a heavy, dark sound that is complimented just as well by the song’s bass line and vocals from front man Joey Arena.

Arena talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“I was raised on unstable grounds,” the statement reads. “Therapy taught me to stop making excuses for those that have abused and abandoned me.

Ovtlier Signs New Distribution Deal; Deal Will See Band’s Latest Single Officially Released Next Month

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

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.
