Northwestern Indiana punk/alt-rock band Overcoast has released their newest single,“Don’t Fall Apart,” off their upcoming album slated to be released later this year. The track stays true to the bands’ pop-punk roots, down to the crunchy guitar riffs, distinct vocal delivery, and “whoa-oa” choruses reminiscent of influences like MXPX and Green Day.
The band’s outlook, both lyrically and otherwise, also tread familiar territory for fans of the genre with a hopeful message behind the punk rock bravado. “‘Don’t Fall Apart’ tells the story of two people who are feeling beaten down by life in their own unique ways, but somehow feel the same,” says the band.
But “Don’t Fall Apart” acts both as the title to the track as well as a request to its’ listeners. “We hope to convey a message of hope and let the listener know that they aren’t alone in whatever battles they face in their daily life. This song was one of the first we wrote for this record, and quickly became a favorite of everyone in the band.“
The single exclusively premiered with The New Alt and is now available across all major streaming platforms. Listen to “Don’t Fall Apart” on SPOTIFY or watch the video on YouTube below.
Overcoast began in 2018 as a group of friends playing in a basement. After realizing their shared appreciation for melodic punk rock from all eras, they soon set out to write the music that they wanted to hear. The band uses catchy hooks, driving energy, and witty lyrics to deliver accessible tunes to fans of a wide array of musical genres.
In 2019 they began playing shows in Chicagoland, Northern Indiana, Indianapolis, and everywhere in between. In 2020 the band released their debut EP More Than Thought’.
After another year (and a global pandemic), Overcoast began to write and record what became their debut LP On Broken Glass; a collection of songs documenting their experiences during the stressful time. The first single, “Don’t Fall Apart”, kicks off the album in an anthemic fashion. The full album is set to release on April 22nd.
