OVERCOME, the Phoenix, Arizona-based Christian hardcore band led by Jason Stinson, has inked a new deal with Facedown Records.

The partnership between OVERCOME and Facedown Records goes all the way back to the birth of the label in 1997, and now OVERCOME is back to release a new album on Facedown. Entitled "The Great Campaign Of Sabotage", the CD will feature new music and new members, but the band's message remains the same. Stinson says, "Be ready, a new flame is burning."

Facedown founder Jason Dunn had this to say about OVERCOME and the significance of the band's return album being Facedown's 100th release: "I first saw OVERCOME in 1994 when they only had a demo tape out.

"Before I played drums for NO INNOCENT VICTIM, I would travel with them and sell merch for them. NO INNOCENT VICTIM went out to play a couple of shows in Arizona and OVERCOME was the band that was also on the show. We instantly connected and have remained friends to this day.

"I always say that I don't think Facedown Records would be around today without OVERCOME. They were the cornerstone of the label in its early years and teaming up with them instantly put our name out there for hardcore fans worldwide, both Christian and non.

"It's an honor to be able to still work alongside these guys and to be able to release the new album as Facedown #100. I could not have dreamed of a more appropriate release for this landmark in the label's history."

"The Great Campaign of Sabotage" will be released on February 1, 2011.

A song from the forthcoming album, "Alone in a Crowd", is available for streaming at the OVERCOME MySpace page.
