South Carolina-based group, Overflow, recently wrapped up production on its debut album, Better Place, set to hit retail on Aug. 24, 2004. Under the direction of producer Scotty Wilbanks (Third Day, NewSong) and executive producer Mac Powell, the Essential Records release offers a unique sound to its pop/rock mix of songs.

Upon first hearing about them through Wilbanks, Powell notes, “Overflow reminds me so much of us (Third Day) when we first started out. They are five normal guys from the South who love Jesus and want to share their faith through their amazing music.” He adds, “The songs first drew me in to working with them. To be as young as they are, having such a great sound and great songs, I was really excited about working with them and helping them as they start off.”

Wilbanks adds, “From the moment I first heard their music, I knew I wanted to work with them in some capacity. Being able to produce this album has been amazing, there hasn’t been a dull moment in the studio and I can’t get their songs out of my head.”

Growing up in small-town Pendleton, SC, Overflow formed out of their youth group and have been touring independently for over three years. Stemming from a strong desire to minister to the church and young people, Overflow’s primary touring history has been with youth groups, camps and conferences. The band also toured on SHOUTfest 2003 which hit 30 markets nationwide and will be out on Summer Jam tour this July and August.
