India’s rock ‘n roll lovers OVERHUNG will be making their Canadian debut at this year’s Indie Week in Toronto, ON. The band is slated to perform two shows, Thursday, Nov 8th at Cherry Cola’s and Friday, Nov 9th at Cavern Bar. In addition to their performances at Indie Week, the band will be performing select dates across Canada (dates to be announced).
Vocalist Sujit Kumar shares his excitement:
“In today’s age of instant gratification, Overhung is one of the best examples of long term dedication and perseverance. With our roots from ORLEM, a small little part of suburban Mumbai, this band is what dreams are made of. The band stuck together, wrote, recorded, released and toured, despite band members spread out across the world and a million other odds. Today, the band is the first and only band out of India playing at the prestigious Indie Week in Canada, a festival in its 16th year that features over 300 bands globally.”

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. The band released their debut album “Moving Ahead” during February of this year on Test Your Metal Records. The 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. The band then later followed up the album with a new single entitled “King of Dreams” during the summer. The single was recorded, mixed, and Mastered with band members being spread across, 3 continents, 4 countries, 5 different studios and 6 different engineers.
As vocalist Sujit Kumar says “This is stuff dreams are made up of.”
