We can now officially announce that our new album ‘Higher’ is available to pre-order! We can also now officially announce that we are officially EXCITED!
One of the requests we get quite often from you guys is that we should make an Overtones calendar... Well, what you want is what you shall have. We've gone and made one for you!
We are offering an exclusive bundle which features a 2013 calendar and a copy of the album for only £17.99! And for those of you who are quick off the mark, the first 1000 of these sold will feature a calendar signed by all of us. We've got our marker pens prepared and we are ready to start signing! To pick up your copy now head over to our website HERE.
Also for a special treat see what we got up to behind the scenes on the album artwork photo shoot HERE.
Don't forget to tune into BBC2 tonight at 9pm to see us perform a track from the brand new album on Rob Brydon's show. We can't wait for you to hear Higher. October 1st will be here in a flash!
With love from

We have been on the road (and in the sky!) a lot recently because we have the great good fortune to be releasing the album around Europe. We've been spending time in Italy, Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland with more to follow. It's been a fantastic thing to go to these new places with new audiences and introduce ourselves for the first time all over again! We’re loving every minute of it!

Some of you may have seen the advertisements and heard the news about RTL Nitro – if not, take a look HERE! RTL is one of Europe's biggest TV stations based in Germany, and they have chosen us, and one of our favourite tunes, Gambling Man, to be the look and sound of the new channel RTL Nitro. This means we'll be doing quite a few trips to Germany this year, methinks. Wait til you see the clips of us speaking German! Should be quite a hoot!
And, of course, when we're not away, we are back in London writing new originals for our forthcoming second album and recording them along with classic covers that will be in your hands later in the year. Here’s a photo of us in the studio with Trevor Horn:
On 12th May we are performing at Warwick Racecourse on Ladies night! You can find out more info and purchase your tickets from HERE.
We hope you are all enjoying the warming weather as much as we are, if you're on this side of the world - and if you are on t'other side, well, then, uuuuum, we hope you get the chance to pop a nice wintery scarf on soon!
Sending love and happy times to all.

We are now back in London after wrapping up our first headline tour!
It was such a great pleasure for us to visit you guys all over the UK and Ireland. We can safely say that we were having as much fun on stage as you were in the audience. Seeing a venue full of smiling faces is such a joy - we loved every minute of being on tour.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll have probably seen that we have announced our NEXT tour! Bigger venues! More cities! We must say, though, that tickets really are selling quickly, so avoid disappointment and book soon if you can. It would be a shame to miss it - it'll be a great show! Tickets are now available on general release HERE. Roll on October!
A bit of TV now. Tune in to ITV's This Morning on Thursday April 28 - they're having a great big knees-up to celebrate the royal wedding and we are going to be joining in and belting out some tunes. Also, check us out singing 'Only Girl In The World' on OK! TV HERE - and a really cool and fun interview we did for Xposé whilst over in Dublin. Search for them on Youtube and enjoy. Also on Youtube is a little vid we made for you guys when we had that mad night on the helicopter a couple of weeks ago! I'm still missing the chopper... Back to the tube... Boo hoo.
I'm sure that many of you will have seen our Royal Wedding Street Party advertised on Facebook. We will be coming to the winner's street party to celebrate the nuptials of Wills and Kate with you! There has been a huge response to this and we're really happy that you would all like us to come to your parties. The application did shut down for a while, because some people wanted us to come to their party so badly, they found their way into the mechanism of our Facebook page and found a way of adding extra votes to their parties. The good folk at Warner Bros HQ were closely monitoring this and have now fixed the problem. Those who hacked our account have been barred and the competition is now back on track! Sorry if there was any confusion or worry. We're looking forward to celebrate this special day with you. Good luck everyone! Click HERE to add your party or vote for others.
We've been really enjoying our Ustream sessions via our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/theovertones. The last time we did this, we announced the winner of our Twibbon competition, Twitter name @hamster79. We will all be going out for a meal together somewhere in London's glittering West End. Darren wants to go to Nobu. Timmy wants to go to Nandos. We'll probably find a happy medium and we'll be sure to take pics for Twitter and Facebook whilst there! The next Ustream chat will be May 10.
See you there!
With love from,
The Boys from,
