The Home Team Issues Double Single, “Roommates” and “Overtime”

After announcing their forthcoming third studio album, The Crucible Of Life, earlier this week, The Home Team have launched a double feature music video for their new singles “Roommates” and “Overtime.” 

“‘Roommates’ and ‘Overtime’ are two sides of the same coin,” vocalist Brian Butcher shares. “I’m not super into astrology, but I do admit that I identify pretty heavily with the descriptions of my sign of Gemini in that I flip flop between two sides of myself. These songs are a conversation between those two sides. ‘Roommates’ is from the perspective of a driven, organized and motivated side of me, and ‘Overtime’ is the respective creative and passionate side. Both have their weaknesses and their strengths, and they can’t exist without the other, but they definitely get into shouting matches sometimes. Safe to say these songs mean a lot to me.”

Capturing The Home Team’s sleek, infectious sound, “Roommates” is an impassioned anthem that places the group’s masterful instrumentation and Butcher’s impressive prowess front and center. Bleeding into “Overtime,” their technical grooviness takes over the spotlight, while Butcher’s natural charisma bursts through his delivery. Both “Roommates” and “Overtime” will appear on the group’s forthcoming 12-track collection alongside previously released singles “Brag,” “Loud,” and “Hell.” You can pre-order The Crucible Of Life here.

The Home Team are currently gearing up to support Caskets in Australia later this month. Following their return, the group are slated to act as a rotating headline act across the debut idobi Radio Summer School Tour, which kicks off in Cleveland OH, on July 10.
