    Posted: January 18 2013 at 10:16
J.D. Overdrive, a southern metal band from Poland, are currently working on the material for their sophomore studio album. The as yet untitled album is scheduled for release in late May via Metal Mind Productions.
 
As the band reveal: “Work on the new album is well underway – drum parts are already recorded, we are giving the finishing touches to the guitar and bass parts. Vocals will be recoded in early February. This time around we invited a few guests to be a part of the new album. The material will be heavier, more metal than on our first release.”
 
You can watch a short video from the recording studio HERE. Full details about the new album to be announced soon!

The band was formed in 2007 when guitarist Michal “Stempel” Stemplowski (along with drummer Luksus and bassist Kuba) recruited vocalist Wojciech “Susel” Kaluza for his new rock project dubbed Jack Daniels Overdrive. They self-released their debut EP called “Pure Concentrated Evil", which received a bunch of great reviews in various webzines and magazines. They played their very first show supporting Jesus Chrysler Suicide (a legendary Polish act) and the following two opening for Beatallica. In the meantime the band experienced two line-up changes, welcoming in their ranks drummer Lukasz “Jooras” Jurewicz and bassist Lukasz “Peo” Pomietło. In March 2009 they were given the honor of performing in Krakow with the living legend of stoner metal – Phil Anselmo's Down. In the following months came the inevitable – they changed their name to J. D. Overdrive to avoid legal problems with the Tennessee tycoon. And just when they thought that nothing can surprise them – on March 9th, 2011 they opened for Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society in Warsaw. After over three years of gathering experience at numerous live shows and sharpening their material, J.D. Overdrive were proud to release their debut album. The album entitled "Sex, Whiskey & Southern Blood" was released by Metal Mind Productions in June 2011. This year and the following brought more live performances and the band supported such acts as Blood Ceremony, Whitesnake and Soulfly. Now, in 2013 they are ready to return with their new album!
 
Line-up:
Wojtek „Suseł” Kałuża – vocal
Michał „Stempel” Stemplowski – guitar
Łukasz „Joorek” Jurewicz – drums

Michał "Stempel" Stemplowski, the band’s guitarist comments: “The good old MTV doesn’t exists anymore so some people see no point in making a video clip. But not us. You can upload your music along with a video on the internet almost on the go so why shouldn’t we use that tool? We decided to shoot a video for the track ‘Funeral Stopper’, which is a killer track at our gigs. Apart from standard band shots, it will feature a short story of a guy led by us through the forest with a bag on his head and bound hands. The presence of shovels and a baseball bat on the set was not accidental! And, apparently, some people didn’t find it very funny… we realized this when some very serious-looking policemen from the crime department got on the set shouting ‘Drop it right now!’ Someone must have called the police! Luckily, no one was hurt and the policemen let us finish the recording of the video.”

J. D. Overdrive, one of the best Southern Metal bands from Poland, released their  sophomore studio album titled “Fortune Favors The Brave” in late May (July, 2nd in US).  And today you can watch another video clip promoting the album. “Shadow of the Beast” is available on Metal Mind Productions’ official channel on YouTube in THIS location.
 
Wojtek ‘Suseł’ Kałuża, vocals comments: "This kind of concept suits ‘Shadow of the Beast’ very well - it's a slow, rather dark song and old school horror flicks are a perfect theme for a video for a track like this. A similar concept was used not long ago by Deftones, except their theme was old western movies. We knew from the get go that horror films was the only option for us - the older and campier, the better (laughs). We had lots of fun gathering the material for this video, got to watch many forgotten classics (laughs)."

The band was formed in 2007 when guitarist Michal “Stempel” Stemplowski (along with drummer Luksus and bassist Kuba) recruited vocalist Wojciech “Susel” Kaluza for his new rock project dubbed Jack Daniels Overdrive. They self-released their debut EP called “Pure Concentrated Evil", which received a bunch of great reviews in various webzines and magazines. They played their very first show supporting Jesus Chrysler Suicide (a legendary Polish act) and the following two opening for Beatallica. In the meantime the band experienced two line-up changes, welcoming in their ranks drummer Lukasz “Jooras” Jurewicz and bassist Lukasz “Peo” Pomietło. In March 2009 they were given the honor of performing in Krakow with the living legend of stoner metal – Phil Anselmo's Down. In the following months came the inevitable – they changed their name to J. D. Overdrive to avoid legal problems with the Tennessee tycoon. And just when they thought that nothing can surprise them – on March 9th, 2011 they opened for Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society in Warsaw. After over three years of gathering experience at numerous live shows and sharpening their material, J.D. Overdrive were proud to release their debut album. The album entitled "Sex, Whiskey & Southern Blood" was released by Metal Mind Productions in June 2011. This year and the following brought more live performances and the band supported such acts as Blood Ceremony, Whitesnake and Soulfly. Now, in 2013 they are ready to return with their new album! The mixing and mastering duties for the album was held by Piotr Gruenpeter who's best known for his work with the post-black phenomenon THAW, as well as from bands Searching For Calm and Sun For Miles.

J. D. Overdrive, one of the best Southern Metal bands from Poland, released their  sophomore studio album titled “Fortune Favors The Brave” earlier this year.  And now you can watch the third video clip promoting the album. “Standing Tall” is available on the band’s official channel on YouTube in THIS location.
 
Wojtek ‘Suseł’ Kałuża, vocals comments: "We edited this video ourselves using various material we gathered during shows we played between June and October 2013. Most of the live footage was filmed by Marta Lebiocka and Marcin Pawłowski, while all the backstage area crap was filmed mostly by us, with the help of some friends. We didn't want this to be a typical live clip, we wanted it to have some balls - that's why we added all those campy scenes here and there. We never took ourselves seriously and I don't think that's gonna change any time soon..."
