We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Overdose Support’s new song “Healthy Self-Love” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Try Dying, which is scheduled to be released through Kaos Kontrol on September 15th. You can pre-order the album here.
Overdose Support band member Charlotta commented on the song:
“The song is about Mr. Mirror Hero. He loves his own ideas, his own body shape and his own hat collection. Mr. Mirror Hero loves to take advantage of the people around him. Those who are working for Mr. Mirror Hero are known as recyclable pieces of ham.”
Overdose Support was forged by a crew of musicians who also share their time in Dark Buddha Rising, Sokea Piste, Baxter Stockman, Katakombi, and other acts. Within this belligerent sect, the members coalesce their energy into a hammering blend of noise rock obsessed with the ills of society and the self. No stone will be left unturned to discover the seediest filth and imaginative form of self-abuse out there, all the while maintaining a steady rock’n’roll groove only disturbed by razor sharp electronics.
Following two prior cassette EPs – Drink & Drive (2014) and Babylon Healthcare System (2015) – Overdose Support’s thundering Try Dying LP comes raging forth, delivering eight new tracks in a twenty-six-minute melee. The prolific sounds of acts like the Dead Kennedys, Drive Like Jehu, and classic AmRep tones cultivated by early Unsane, Cows, and The Jesus Lizard, and others crash with the crossover/punk experimentation of modern acts like Child Bite, Arabrot, and Okkultokrati. Try Dying was recorded in February-March 2017 by Markus Leminen and mastered by Saku Tamminen, then completed with bizarre artwork by Heikki Hautala.
Try Dying will be available through all digital platforms and LP in a run of 350 copies on black vinyl with a full-color sleeve and digital download code.
