THE OVERTONES To Release Platinum Edition Of 'Good Ol' Fashioned Love' On 10th October


To coincide with their extensive autumn tour, Britain’s hottest male vocal group release the Platinum Edition of their Top 5 album ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’. In addition to the twelve songs from the original album, the Platinum Edition has three brand new songs including their new single ‘Second Last Chance’ (released October 10th).

‘Second Last Chance’ is a vintage-pop song that, like the band themselves, mixes the tradition of American vocal groups with the best of classic, present-day British pop. With its swagger and bop, this new single fits in harmoniously with classics from their Top 5 album such as ‘Sh-Boom’, ‘Why Do Fools Fall In Love’ and their recent original single, ‘Gambling Man’.

Similarly, new original recordings ‘Say What I Feel’ and ‘Whoops’ acknowledge the impact and influence of great vocal groups, such as The Temptations, The Drifters and The Five Satins, whilst reflecting The Overtones’ pop sensibility and broad contemporary appeal. “Vocal harmony groups have had the great fortune of being able to traverse musical styles from doo-wop through soul, Motown and R&B. We've really enjoyed extending The Overtones’ sound to new tracks on the Platinum Edition album.”

Having originally formed in 2006, it has taken them some time to get here, so of course now that they have arrived, The Overtones are raging with ambition. The tours are getting bigger, and they want them to be bigger still. On completing a sold-out tour in March The Overtones announced a national theatre tour in October, including such prestigious venues as the London Palladium which is already sold out.

The Overtones are: Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw, Darren Everest, Timmy Matley and Lachie Chapman
