Man Overboard to Begin Recording New Album

It’s been over a year since Man Overboard released their last studio album, Heart Attack, and in a less than a week, the New Jersey-based band will be releasing a five song EP titled Passing Ends through their own record label, Lost Tape Collective.

In support of the EP’s release, the band sat down to speak with Alternative Press at their headquarters about everything that has been going on with them, including: postponing their UK Heart Attack tour due to vocalist/bassist Nik Bruzzese’s ACL surgery, the misfortune of their supporting act (Hostage Calm) disbanding, and if they think they will always refer to themselves as a pop-punk band.

With all that good information, one of the biggest pieces of information came when the band revealed that they were currently working on their fourth studio album already.

“We’re writing and demoing songs right now. We’re gonna go and record it next year,” guitarist Justin Collier said.

“We’re trying to do everything the way we used to as far as hanging out in Nik’s studio a lot which is how we started our band,” vocalist/guitarist Zac Eisenstein said.

“We’re just trying not to do anything different, but we’re getting stuff done [and that’s why I came here tonight]. We’re gonna work on some ideas. Without process, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

But for those across the pond who were worrying that Man Overboard won’t make it there next year for those postponed dates, don’t fret because the band confirmed that the will be finding an act to take the dearly departed Hostage Calm’s place.

“We’re going to replace Hostage Calm with another band; we don’t know who yet. Everything will come together,” Collier assured. Postponed tour dates can be seen below.
