The steel seeds of hard rockin’ music find fertile ground all over the world. All races and religions embrace it. Music should become the new worldwide religion; we’d have moshing instead of wars! Good times!
The love of music is strong in India, and stronger than all in the splendidly named OVERHUNG who hail from Mumbai! The band owe their name to unique vocalist Sujit Kumar who changed Hungover to Overhung…which speaks even more volumes than their music!
OVERHUNG are making the most debauched melodic hard rock since Guns ‘n’ Roses released their classic ‘Appetite For Destruction’. With a successful debut full length ‘Moving Ahead’ under their belts set to be re-released in 2018 via Canadian label Test Your Metal Records, great live shows, and a planned follow up single entitled ‘King of Dreams’, OVERHUNG are ready to offer the world killer sounds coming straight outta India!
Influenced by Poison, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin , guitarist Howard Pereira describes their sound as “loud, fun, sex, rum…rock ‘n’ roll! We are about devolution not evolution! We are still doing late 80s and 90s rock!”
Pereira explains the very reason for OVERHUNG’s creation was when the members jammed “the energy was infectious and all of us wanted to write more kick-ass music with together…We hope that people are open to hearing our music in 2017. The band’s music is largely arena rock sounding, so at live gigs people just lose it and have a blast!”
You have to see OVERHUNG play because they have “insane live energy! Quite frankly there is no one like Sujit Kumar when it comes to live performances. He is shameless and you can’t take your eyes off him. His antics include table dancing, interacting with women (and men too sometimes), climbing everything in sight from light poles to bartops! It is engaging for the audiences. Also we deliver tight and fun glam-rockish sets that go down well!”
(Bio written by Steve Earles)
The full length is an electrifying 10 tracks ready to blast from the stereo speakers and give fans that classic glam rock n’ roll feel of the 70’s and 80’s. In their native country of India, the Mumbai rock band has been garnering praise along with their straight to the point lyrics about sex and more sex that they feel is still a topic too taboo to be spoken of.
The band comments:
“Overhung has always been the one band that I’ve been a part of that has always had the good fortune or ability to overcome. From our vocalist leaving the city and the country, to no support for indie rock, to people disassociating because we sing about sex, these and a hundred more obstacles can’t slow us down. We are ready to take on North America first and with the help of Test Your Metal records, the world next!”
Mumbai rock ‘n rollers OVERHUNG made their North American debut earlier this year with their album “Moving Ahead” released via Test Your Metal Records. Influenced by Poison, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin , OVERHUNG‘s sound is all about loud, fun, sex, rum and rock ‘n’ roll. That full length was an electrifying 10 tracks capturing the band’s infectious energy to blast from the stereo speakers and give fans that classic glam rock n’ roll feel of the 70’s and 80’s.
Now the band returns this summer 2018 with a new single entitled “King of Dreams”.
The band comments:
“Overhung is beyond excited with the Release of their New Single “King Of Dreams” through Test Your Metal Records. A song that has been recorded, mixed, and Mastered with band members being spread across, 3 continents, 4 countries, 5 different studios and 6 different engineers is stuff Dreams are made up of.”
