THE OVERTONES - NEW ALBUM ‘GOOD OL’ FASHIONED CHRISTMAS’ WILL BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 27TH
‘A CHRISTMAS PARTY WITH THE OVERTONES’ TOUR RUNS THROUGHOUT DECEMBER
The Overtones celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas’, a collection of festive family favourites that will be released on November 27th.
After four consecutive Top 10 albums and over 800,000 sales, the Christmas album is The Overtones’ first on their own Gambling Man Records label.
The boys have compiled a stocking rammed with Christmas crackers in the shape of good ol’ classics such as ‘White Christmas’, ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ and ‘Let It Snow’. The album – produced by their regular collaborators Graham Archer and Julian Hinton – also adds to the seasonal traditions with two brand new Christmas songs in the shape of ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas’ and ‘This Christmas Time’.
“I can't wait to get in the festive spirit with everyone and have a great party!” says Darren Everest. “Doing a Christmas album is something we've always wanted to do and also something that the fans have asked for, for a while. We're very proud of it and hope everyone enjoys a Good Ol' Fashioned Christmas with us.”
