First new album from Urge Overkill in 12 years!
Featuring the singles "Freedom!" "How Sweet The Light" and "Forgiven"
When the world was asked if it was time for new music from Urge Overkill, it responded with one word — Oui.
Oui is the new release from Nash Kato and King Roeser — their first in more than a decade. It's full of their signature mix of rock, hooks, and fancy bling, which is exactly what a post-pandemic planet has needed for far too long.
Urge Overkill is comprised of two unique voices. A double singer-songwriter attack. Roeser and Kato, two Minnesota native sons, met at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Pulling their name from Parliament's title track "Funkentelechy," Urge Overkill was born in 1984, releasing their debut EP Strange I... on fellow Northwestern student Steve Albini's Ruthless Records (with Albini in the production chair, as well).
Kato and Roeser last reunited in 2010, playing a set at Tarantino's Friar's Club Roast, and sat on the podium alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman. Two years later, Rock & Roll Submarine was released to great acclaim (garnering four stars from Mojo magazine).
Now, a decade later, Urge Overkill returns with Oui — 12 new tracks from Kato and Roeser, including 11 originals and an Urge-ified cover of Wham!'s "Freedom!" It's the logical extension of everything everyone loves about Urge Overkill — killer riffs, memorable hooks, and the style and swagger of Nash Kato and King Roeser.
So, add the word that goes before "please." It's Oui.
