"Honor Way Down", the debut album from PRIMITIVE OVERFLOW, the progressive rock project featuring Los Angeles-based guitarist/songwriter Hoyt Binder and ENUFF Z' NUFF singer Donnie Vie, is available now from ProgRock Records. The CD features "progressive cuts with power pop hooks that both sound current and evoke the early progressive scene, when rock and roll was a very spiritual matter," according to a press release.

Inspired by "The Creative," Binder creates music for the sake of music. With influences ranging from 20th-century composers to jazz, rock, metal, funk, pop and folk, he aspired to write an album with no boundaries. Everything melds into the progressive melting pot that is PRIMITIVE OVERFLOW. The end result is a unique sound, integrating progressive rock with catchy pop vocals, dripping with melody.

This album's progressive shoes were fulfilled by the powerhouse of Paulo Gustavo on bass and Chris Quirarte (REDEMPTION) on drums with the brilliant Ronald Van Deurzen on keyboards. Even in the most complex passages, the band manages to keep a rough, organic vibe that keeps the music true to its rock roots. All virtuosos in their own right, the band raised the bar, highlighting the need for a high profile singer to make this album come to life.
