After years of hard work, and closing in on the band's 20-year mark, Overhead are back with the new album Haydenspark, sounding better than ever!

The album is lyrically inspired by recent and current events in the world. The music features strong and catchy melodies and riffs, dynamic beats and is delivered with a Classic Rock sound. The music ranges from Rock, Prog and heavier riffs to more acoustic atmospheres, so the new album has a diverse and intense sound. Virtuosic guitar and drum work, groovy and strong bass lines and deeply emotional and melodic vocals are the tools to build the scenic music, where the atmosphere varies from melancholic to hard-hitting.

The band sounds it's absolute best on this album. Haydenspark combines the sound of the earlier albums with a new and exiting, more guitar-driven direction. The album presents a noticeably more experienced band with catchy hooks and still remains unpredictable and exciting at the same time.

Track Name: Animation for the Poor Man
So now just concentrate
Come on let's do this
You know, get through this
How much can you see
Turn off your tv
Another failed nation
I'm on a mission

It's an animation for the poor man
Fake solid truths
An animation for the poor man
Break us all in two

Elation, devotion
Feel it all in your heart
A-making a way in
It's reading into your darkest fears
And preconceptions
It's time for action
I'm assuming I failed to get through to you
'Cause this is what you do
You take an abomination and turn it around

Now it's more like an animation for the poor man
Fake solid truths
An animation for the poor man
Break us all in two

So it's you who are upside down too
By your own admission, you're on a mission
And it's true
You are upside down
Too much disinformation inseminate the nation

And if I kinda went
Too far too far too far
'Cause endless
You are you are you are
Can't my mind ever learn the lesson?
I'm alive not too old to listen
You are too far
Track Name: Last Generation
Shattered glass all around
War ships crash to the ground
Silence the trees
We need machines
It's unacceptable
As it's a Saturday
Slowly on its way

No matter who they choose it's coming soon
Don't matter what now, it's happening soon

Reaching out through the void
Shadows of the destroyed
The last one to breath was the last to leave
It was unexceptional
In the bigger scheme of things
It's you who's avoiding it

Don't matter who they choose it's coming soon
Don't matter what now, it's happening so fast

The world is... the world is only on the edge of shutdown
For them it's the last generation

It's all over now
It's all or nothing after all
Until the day has come
When all the rest is left behind
The signs are starting to begin to disappear
Into the darkness of the void

Who they choose, it's coming soon
Don't matter what now, it's happening

Who they choose, it's coming soon
It don't matter what now, and everything's happening so fast

Yeah the world is... the world is only on the edge
For them it's the last generation
Track Name: Count Your Blessings
A testing, a tempest, assorted announcements, a morning bell
Now the court is adjourned and the verdicts are called
As to who was doing all the gardening
When the moon is in tune and so soon we would
Lose to the walking dead

Deception, detection, inception, rejection, now who can tell
Somehow they always return just in time for the fall
Now you can choose but you ain't avoiding it
Why so few are amused when it's you being used
And it's what was said

And we're not there after all
Something tells me who will fall
Random message on this wall
Count your blessings, English lord

Affliction, a victimless cross-section, it's nearly time to quell
There's no resistance anymore, they've all gone for the war
And only fools want to prove anybody wrong
At least with some innocent song
It's pretty clear there's something else going on
Anyway
Track Name: Haydenspark
A revelation to start with the upside of:
Nature's a part of the outcome

Haydenspark, in name
But not quite as easy as it used to be
When time's got hard
Haydenspark

Though it's a world away
It won't be long now
These godlike exponential machines will wake me one day

The moon/sun it seems so precious
Every man living in stasis
Overcrowded good Victorians
Advocating for a cleaner energy

A revelation to start with the upside of:
nNature's a part of the outcome
There is your path
taken apart by secret inconvenient undercover human beings

Take us off
the blame forgot
When the days would turn a week to years
We need time
Take us off
Track Name: King of the World
Soon and up everywhere
And until the end
We're left with their voices
Who had nothing to do
But leapt in the air
whenever their brain says ***

Perhaps it's the destiny of the vile
To crush all yer doubts of self survival
To be left alone it's final
Fact is, your back's up off the ground

Witness the king of the world
He's sitting on his throne
Intoxicated, worst one of 'em all
Oh I have made my mind up
Centuries pass look what I got
It's an imaginary crown
on an ordinary clown

It's the moon there's nothing to fear
Our harvest is here
Come drink from our fountain
You whose throat is still there
Just shout if you hear
Come down from your mountain

Alas now the rest of us are liars
Collectively captives of denial
To be left alone is final
Fact is, your back's up off the ground

We hear voices
Underground installations
Monitor the sounds
Of pixelating quantum motion
Cascading round and round we know
Until it's all and everything
Has a way of turning into everything
That's all
Track Name: Across the Nation
Please don't call for honesty
Don't call for answers
Stop calling me please
A wasteful motion
just won't stop them from panicking
won't promise to die for what's on your tv

Waiting for nations to fade away from reality
Patience today, I sing
I feel an emotion
reality never defeated the summer's deleted

Oh no
I suppose I told you so
Yes that's all well enough now
and so shall it be
Across the nation
A roll call for honesty
We're all calling for answers
Not sure what we mean

Patiently waiting for the nation's disintegration
This destinationless city it seems
Patiently waiting for the nation's disintegration
Take it, take everything you need

According to what I've seen
Well it's all a big mess now
And it must be cleaned

With a sword in motion
It's all I need
Just take pride in the emotion
obviously

Across the nation
a roll call for honesty
We're all calling for answers
We know what we mean
Track Name: Death by Tribulation
Who do you declare
a loss beyond repair
Who'd have thunk that we'd be here
to witness the end
We are not the same
We're caught in the trap we made
where you've become yourself again
Watching our souls decay

At every yard
An answer deep in our hearts
Death by tribulation
Stay and ne'er depart
An answer deep in their hearts
Death by tribulation

We're the ones to blame
The world just stayed the same
Two and one play the game
Win some, lose some
On holiday in June
Such a random day
to become once again ashes and vapour

Death at every yard
An answer deep in our hearts
Death by tribulation
Stay and ne'er depart
An answer deep in their hearts
Death by tribulation

Down as they charge
plunging deep at the enemy
Armies of steel at the edge collide
Track Name: The Fall
Don't turn away now
So much to say
Look around
What have we slain

Man has drained the
Blood of this earth
Still hesitating
Like we're not there after all

Communicating
Not enough
Until it makes you old at heart
Almost too late
It's always soon enough
Until they tear the world apart

The jig is up so
Soon it's too late
So turn it off
See it my way

My mind is broken
So is the earth
Some medicate it
some only after all the oil

Almost too late
Almost too far
Not just the way
They trolled us too far
Man has taken over the earth
No destination for some
All about to fall
You're about to fall
Track Name: Gone Too Far
Still waiting I know I'm still here
Still hearing about the future
Revolutionary way
and now I don't even know what they're calling it
Destined to fade into the dark
When your time is up, your time is up
Like when you're saying you're sorry
Your situation is anything but
It's the opposite of
It's a chance to go

Far ahead
With an out-of-control amount of motion
Calling out to all the innocent ahead

Gone too far ahead
we'd be out of control without emotions
Still waiting for the end
This is overhead

And we're not there
We're not fit enough
Not big enough
Taking damage for nothing
Believe it or not
We're already on top
Made of steadier stuff
Maybe ready for nothing
Thinking I was but I froze that thought
I'm frozen up
Instead I take a vacation
Take away 9 from 99
Like a father's child
It's a chance to go

Far ahead
With an out-of-control amount of motion
Calling out to all the innocent ahead

Gone too far ahead
We'd be out of control without emotions
still waiting for the end
This is overhead

Gone too far ahead
Let the meters tell the numbers
Scan the readings
Read your comments
Earn your dollars
Eat it up and drink a lot
Ain't it hard
Waking up
Take your time
You're really dreaming
Only teasing
Don't believe me
All I've done is gone too far
