Man Overboard Announce New Album “Heavy Love” Due Out 6/30 via Rise Records / Premiere Three Performance Videos Featuring New Tracks

Jersey’s Man Overboard are back with the announcement of their
tremendous new album, Heavy Love, due out June 30th
via Rise Records. To celebrate the album’s announcement, the band have premiered
three performance videos featuring new songs, “Now That You’re Home,”
“Borderline,” and “Splinter.” The tracks offer a substantial taste of the
massive, dynamic sounds found on Heavy Love. The album
features a revitalized Man Overboard, a band whose members
have conquered personal turmoil and reemerged even stronger, producing their
finest, most confident effort to date.  

Physical pre-orders for
Heavy Love are available HERE, and digital pre-orders can be found HERE.  Man Overboard will be supporting the
release of Heavy Love with performances on the
entirety of the Vans Warped Tour, as well as embarking on the
Suppy World Tour, which will see the band joining forces with The Story So Far
in Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

punk rock bands could never imagine having the kind of longevity that would find
them four full length albums deep into their career, but Man
Overboard aren’t most punk rock bands. With the release of
Heavy Love, Man Overboard have
returned with an album that both embraces their past and looks towards their
future. Heavy Love is the band’s most accomplished
work, a confident release that more than proves that the band’s fierce
insistence on following their own path has paid off.

The prolific band
exploded onto the scene with their debut EP, Hung Up On Nothing, in
2008, and hit the ground running with a steady stream of releases including
three full lengths and many EPs, splits, singles, and collections. A non-stop
touring machine, Man Overboard travelled the globe bringing
their raucous live show to stages everywhere and saw their hard work pay off as
the band steadily grew more popular. Despite their success, the band maintained
their DIY roots, running their own label, Lost Tape Collective, and giving back
to the scene they love.  

After the release of their 2013 full length,
Heart Attack, the band’s momentum was suddenly halted by turmoil within
the band members’ personal lives.  A band whose energy thrives on youthful
exuberance and angst, the members of Man Overboard suddenly
found themselves growing up whether they liked it or not. These sudden changes
found their way into the core of Heavy Love. Guitarist
Wayne Wildrick said “so much happened in our personal lives since the last
album. Some of the members experienced loss and death, and some of the members
got married. That is a big contrast and you can hear all those emotions on the
record, in both the music and in the lyrics.”

With these new life
experiences in tow, Man Overboard began to envision their
fourth full length.  They set no limits, ignored all expectations, and opened
themselves up to any and all possibilities. The result is a revitalized sounding
band giving some of their most passionate performances yet.  Production courtesy
of the legendary Bill Stevenson at The Blasting Room Studios perfectly captures
the band sonically stretching their limbs and exploring new dynamics. Tracks
like “She’s In Pictures” and “Now That You’re Home” find the band touching on
crunchy power pop, while the fierce “Cliffhanger” and “Anything” demonstrate an
aggression rarely heard on the band’s past work. This natural progression never
dilutes spirit of Man Overboard’s sound. Massive hooks and
heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics are still the band’s hallmarks and they achieve them
on Heavy Love with a combination of precision and
passion that is undeniable.

Heavy Love is an
achievement by nature of it’s very existence. The fourth full length in an
already impressive discography, it is evidence of Man
Overboard’s staying power and ability to adapt. Where many punk bands
falter, Man Overboard has flourished and created an album that
celebrates their past and dives headfirst into their future.
