Brooklyn duo Overcoats announce the March 6 release of their upcoming album The Fight today via Loma Vista Recordings. Tempering punk energy with vulnerable vitality and irresistible catchiness, The Fight is a ten-song battle-cry. It’s the kind of record that might inspire you to quit your job, run a marathon, divorce your husband, change your life in the way you always wanted to, but needed an extra push for. The Fight is the push.
“The idea you have to fight for who you are, what you want, and what you hope to see in the world became poignant for us,” says Overcoats. “We realized the thing to do is not to wait for life to get easier, but to start fighting harder.”
The Fight was produced by Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Charli XCX, Santigold) and Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Empress Of, girl in red, Miya Folick).
The Fight is available to pre-order now on deluxe vinyl with 10-card custom tarot deck, CD, and digital HERE!
Overcoats have also today debuted a new song and video entitled “Fire & Fury.” The track is equal parts dark and brooding as well as hopeful and anthemic – a dichotomy which is mirrored in the its soaring chorus “there’s a fire, there’s a fury, the sky is falling, but we’ll get through it.”

The video was shot in Wrightwood, CA and was directed by her Productions, who said this of working with the band:
“When producing and directing for Overcoats, our goal for the video was to provide a visual representation of their musical growth. Overcoats’ artistic dedication to the creative process supported the creation of a truly authentic video.”
