Over 15 years since their last album, the two-headed rock 'n roll behemoth that is Urge Overkill, will finally make its return. Their new album, Rock & Roll Submarine, is out May 10th on their own label UO Records. The band's mixture of arena-ready hooks with punk rock ferocity is as potent as ever, as apparent on the rip-roaring new track, "Effigy." The ever stylish band will kick off a brief US tour in May, where they will be tearing through their new and classic material.
The reformed lineup is made up of original singer-guitarists/songwriters Eddie "King" Roeser and Nash Kato, along with drummer Bonn Quast (Polvo; The Cherry Valence) and bassist Hadji Hodgkiss (Gaza Strippers). As always, the chemistry between Kato and Roeser is the driving force behind each song. Whether it's the haunting way in which their voices blend or their striking, intertwined guitars, the dual frontmen exude a unique and magnetic presence that has been sorely missed.
Check out "Effigy" here. It is a monster of rawk and it grooves.
