Overo / Asthenia split 7"


Image of Overo / Asthenia split 7"

Tokyo, Japan / Houston, TX

Emotive hardcore bands Overo (USA) and Asthenia (JPN) pair up to deliver four visceral, cathartic songs. Originally planned in conjunction with an Overo/Asthenia Japan tour set for November 2020, the split 7” showcases both bands’ ability to balance vulnerability and aggression, light and dark, whispers and gut-wrenching screams. As the pandemic raged across the world, eight record labels across six countries stepped up to support the release despite the cancellation of bands’ tour in support of it. The end result is a response to COVID-19 that’s sonic and substantial rather than literal.
