Overworld Aren't Dead.....Yet

Adrenaline rock 'n' roll metallers Overworld is a band which is aiming to cause an impact on today's music scene as musicians completely devoted to their work. Dedicated for life, the band advances further every day, leaving a lasting mark wherever they go. These guys talked of their debut EP and other plans for this year.

1. What type of band are you?

We are a kickass adrenaline rock 'n' roll metal band out of Stockholm, Sweden, consisting of 5 hungry young rockers dead set on making it in the business. We've been going at it since 2012 and we're not stopping until we're dead!

2. Where are you from?

Stockholm, Sweden, although some band members are from other Swedish cities originally.

3. Do you think not being from a big city like LA or NY influences your sound?

With the advent of the internet, it's possible to be influenced by music from all corners of the world. Several US bands have inspired our sound and we think that it might shine through even though we have our own take on things.

4. How did you come together?

Kaz (guitar) and Andie (drums) formed the band after their old bands split up, then found the other members progressively. Nikke (guitar) was also a member of Andie's old band SAI, and Endigo (vocals) + Lynx (bass) knew each other from various projects before joining Overworld.

5. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

It came from a drunken conversation about taking Over the World. If you know what we mean, hehe. But also we pretty much find it a cool name that is easy to remember. It makes an impression, and that's important to us.

6. You guys have a unique sound, which bands would you say influence you the most?

No bands in particular. We aren't afraid to mix things in order to create our own, unique take on rock/metal music.

7. What lyrical theme do you guys use in your music? What message do you want to send?

Different all the time but mainly stemming from our own lives, with emotions & personal stories being very central. The music often tells us what kind of lyrics would go with it. There's anger, melancholia & craziness, but also a lot of beauty and sincerity.

8. You released a music video for the song "Until We're Dead" can you tell me about the song and video's concept?

It's a song that we made mainly to introduce ourselves to the world. It's a bold statement to say, "we're not stopping until we're dead", but that's really what it's all about. We want to entertain people and live out our dreams, and the only way to do that is to go all in. That's what the song is about. Become the one you're born to be.

9. The song comes off your debut "Perfect Anomaly" what inspired the title and is this a concept release?

It's not a concept release, but the song "Perfect Anomaly" is basically about being who you are, and who you want to be, despite the opinions of others. An anomaly is basically an unforeseen consequence. But you are who you are, you are perfect in yourself, even if others might view you as just that, an anomaly. It's a personal and empowering track.

10. Tell me about your new single "My Reality" what is that song about and why did you pick it as your single?

It tells a story of multiple realities, and how we all co-exist in them, and how the reality you and I live in might be totally different from one another. We chose it mainly because it has a lot of energy and sticks with you emotionally. We think people will dig it and chant its lyrics loudly, which is what it's all about!

11. You also have a Pledge Campaign running with a web series for this new single and video, what made you need to go as far as doing all of this?

Doing music, videos etc is very, very, VERY expensive. Especially as an unsigned band.
We have a dedicated and absolutely lovely fanbase who have shown many times that they want to help out, and they definitely did. This could not have happened without them.

12. What are your plans for new music, aside from this new single.

Can't tell you much more right now unfortunately, but we have a couple of surprises lined up!

13. What can the fans expect to see from you in the future?

More awesomeness. What you love about us will only become more intense, and if you don't love us yet, we aim to make you do so. We will release more stuff and hopefully reach outside of Sweden with our live show soon. We can't wait to entertain people worldwide!

14. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and pretty much any other digital retailer. We're opening a webshop soon for physical CDs & merch as well.

15. Anything else you want to say to your fans?

We love you more than you can possibly imagine. Stay strong and stick with us. Rock on, crazy people!
