Frontman Adam Joad comments:
«We were really inspired by Rudy Ray More and his journey as Dolemite. Here’s a guy that every film distributor laughed at but he knew his audience and had faith in his product. He’s a legend. When we started talking to record labels, they were talking to us because what we were doing worked, but then they wanted to change everything because they didn’t understand what we were doing or our audience. It made me think of Rudy and Dolemite so we made a video that was a nod to sticking to your guns and doing things your own way when everyone wants you to be something else».

The band comments:
«This song is all about something I think most people can relate to. You get to the point where you sick of hearing people talking about where they are going to go, what they can do, or talking shit on the Internet… It’s all talk no action. I have not time for that beta rock kind of nonsense – Stand and deliver son…..As for the video, well we just had fun with that, I’ll let that speak for itself».
Scattered Hamlet was formed in 2010 by lead vocalist Adam Joad and has relentlessly toured all over the states with widespread appeal from their down to earth accessibility, blue collar work ethic and outlaw vibe. Making an impact from the outset, the title track opens with a burst of energy, distorted guitars, and dynamic vocals. Launching riff after riff the distorted guitars are a fierce force across their tracks, Scattered Hamlet creates a compelling sound with intricate guitar leads and mighty rhythms. From the aggressive mood of Death Or Dishonor befitting a barroom brawl, through to the bluesy rocking Low Class Blues, Stereo Overthrow isn’t afraid to explore a variety of styles.
Scattered Hamlet has produced a dynamic album that brings bucket loads of attitude, epic riffs and a thriving rock spirit. Not holding back and ploughing through any obstacles that get in their way, Stereo Overthrow is a thrilling road trip not to be missed.
