Death Rock

Captivating Anarcho Post Punk! Premiering OVER “Amateur Predator”

Portland is our adult Disneyland, mainly because of the plethora of amazing bands that pop up in this PNW town like magic mushrooms! OVER is a band that formed in 2016 and they make post-punk/anarcho-punk/death rock that we’re swooning over. Today we’re excited to share their latest digital-only release, “Amateur Predator.” You can pick this up via their bandcamp, and all the proceeds from track sales will go to the Red Lodge Transition Services, which you can read more about below. Over are gearing up to record a full-length this year and we couldn’t be more stoked about it. For now, whet your appetite with “Amateur Predator” below…and make sure to check out their 2017 release Vacant Daydream while you’re at it!


All proceeds go to Red Lodge Transition Services: 

Red Lodge Transition Services is a non-profit grass roots organization supported by volunteers who have experience working with men and women in prison. Our primary objective is to assist Native men and women who are ready to transition from prison, jail, and treatment back to community. Creating a realistic plan for transition can be very stressful! There are many obstacles and barriers each person, family and community must navigate through in order to be successful. Red Lodge Transition Services is working to identify barriers and help prepare people for successful re-entry.


I can see the ghosts behind your eyes


I can see the fear you try to hide

You say

I like it best the blind way

But I see

A certain shade of misery

Your shame

Like armor on a red day

But I saw

A crack in your glass jaw

Amateur Predator

One dimensional hell hole

So quick to flay the whip

So safe in your houses

Your locked doors

Your dead mind

You’d die for

Man Unkind

So unsafe

To think twice


Man Unkind


Roll the dice

On my life


Gut the earth

And bid the poor to do your work


Devalue me

Use your shame like chains to bind me



The hate that eats your heart alive


Kings and Queens

Petty riches, nobel nothing


Empty still

With nothing but your pain to kill
