Hardcore team Overcome to be hundredth Facedown release

PHOENIX-based hardcore band Overcome, who have been associated with California's Facedown Records since the label's birth in 1997, will be featured on the company's first release of 2011. 'The Great Campaign Of Sabotage' will be released in the US on 1st February. Said Facedown founder Jason Dunn, "I first saw Overcome in 1994 when they only had a demo tape out. Before I played drums for No Innocent Victim, I would travel with them and sell merch for them. NIV went out to play a couple of shows in Arizona and Overcome was the band that was also on the show. We instantly connected and have remained friends to this day. I always say that I don't think Facedown Records would be around today without Overcome. They were the cornerstone of the label in its early years and teaming up with them instantly put our name out there for hardcore fans worldwide, both Christian and non. It's an honour to be able to still work alongside these guys and to be able to release the new album as Facedown #100. I could not have dreamed of a more appropriate release for this landmark in the label's history." CR
