Toronto-based hard rockers, Uforia have released a new video for “Overthrow”, a track from their latest EP, Fight Or Flight, produced by Steve Molella of Finger Eleven. Footage from the video was shot during the band’s East Coast Canadian tour earlier this year.
Vocalist/guitarist Michael Ursini commented on the significance of this video for the band:
“Our East Coast Canadian tour created some of the greatest moments of our lives. Now we get to share them with all of you through our new video! “Overthrow”. I also like to add that so many of our fans would love to meet us but are in places we’ve yet to perform. This Overthrow video is a very personal and intimate take on Uforia’s live show and personalities. We hope that it will fill the void until we get back on the road.”
We had the chance to review this album last summer and had this to say about the song:
“Overthrow” separates itself from the heavy rock anthems on the EP. It is a song with a message delivered in the most unexpected manner. Haunting strings with synth-y overtones usher the listener into a song where bongos and warm melodies on an acoustic guitar then take the lead with stunning chord progressions. This softer delivery ensures the message of the song is heard. Uforia says ‘“Overthrow” encourages listeners to be patient and to take control of their own destiny when the moment is right’.

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
