“OVERDRIVE has become a turning point for us, which we all needed.”
German metalcore whiz kids BREATHE ATLANTIS announce their already eagerly awaited album »Overdrive«, available on March 18th, closing the circle of their metamorphosis into one of the hottest national acts in hard'n'heavy.
»Overdrive« is more than just an ordinary album for the quartet. It also means an arrival, because BREATHE ATLANTIS already proved with their furiously celebrated single releases, that they have musically and visually matured into a solid unit.

"Overdrive has become a turning point for us, which we all needed. On the record we process our past, in which we were often frustrated and depressed due to external circumstances and we felt limited and constricted by expectations or external ideas. On this album we just did what we felt like doing and wrote and shouted everything from the soul. This is our most honest and emotional album we've written so far and I think it will speak to a lot of people," explains singer Nico Schiesewitz.
With Andy Posdziech (Any Given Day) the Esseners got a big player in the German metal scene as a producer. With his experience, he brought the true musical capability of BREATHE ATLANTIS to the surface, wrapped in a modern and aggressive sound, adorned with an incomparable and raw aesthetic that has recognition value.
"Musically, we just went the way that felt best for us. There were only two choices left: Start over or admit the end of that path. We are here to express our feelings through music and deliver the most honest and meaningful art. It just felt right for us to aim for a darker and heavier sound than ever before, this ongoing pandemic was of course fuel to the fire."
