Los Angeles-based pop-punk band Crash Overcast released their new single “Bloodrush” along with its music video. While being about the world’s self-destruction, the track is punk driven with bounce and elements of post-hardcore.
The new single “Bloodrush” is a pop-punk concept song about the apocalypse. The song features driving guitars, soaring vocals, heavy breakdowns, and depicts vivid imagery of humankind working to cling to its very existence in a do-or-die scenario. What caused mankind’s meltdown? Was it a plague of some sorts? A natural disaster? A brutal war? Ultimately, it is up to the listener to decide.
Since 2015, the band has worked to deliver emotionally impactful content by consistently releasing music and videos. They have also become known throughout the West Coast punk rock scene for cultivating a high energy and interactive live show. In 2017, they released their debut EP ‘Too Close To Call’, which helped them garner the attention of blogs, booking agents, and other artists across the United States. In the summer of 2018, they had the honor of taking the stage during the last full cross country Vans Warped Tour where they showcased many songs from their EP as well as debuted new material unreleased at the time.
In the summer of 2019, the band went into the studio to record their next record with producer Paul Miner whose credits include records by New Found Glory, Atreyu, Thrice, Zebrahead, and Death By Stereo. Crash Overcast is currently building hype for the upcoming record with the release of select singles such as “Bloodrush”, which dropped on March 6th.
About what is happening next for the band, vocalist/guitarist Alex Kurnow stated:
“We currently have two other music videos completely finished and ready for release, so be on the lookout in the near future! We are also working on another music video for a song that we didn’t intend to release as a single but we think people will really like. The video is going to be shot completely from quarantine: we are having our friends, family, and people who are fans of our type of music submit their own footage of themselves rocking out and singing the lyrics to our new song and we are going to then edit everything into one music video. We wanted to showcase what life is like for all of us going about our lives in a quarantined situation at the moment, and also prove that groups of people can collaborate on a common project from remote locations.”
