In related news, Over Stars And Gutters will be hitting the road in December / Early January with John Moreland and the Black Gold Band. Dates and specifics to follow shortly.
Beginning on Saturday, Norman, Oklahoma’s Over Stars And Gutters will hit the road for a short midwestern jaunt in support of their self-released debut, Consider This Your Curse.
For fans of Dillinger Four and Off With Their Heads, Consider This Your Curse is a collection of punk rock anthems that breeds much more than your standard, mindless fist-pumping. The album is sincere and passionate yet ripe with despair and confusion. Over Stars And Gutters wrap their jaded, lyrical stabs in heaps of emphatic melody. This is raw and urgent pop/punk for people ready and willing to challenge the staus quo. In the words of Over Stars And Gutters, “We have no other choice but to live for what we truly love.” Punk rock is still alive and well and records like Consider This Your Curse prove that.
