Test Your Metal Records is proud to announce the North American re-release of Mumbai rock ‘n rollers OVERHUNG’s debut album “Moving Ahead”, out now as of February 16, 2018. 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 full length is an electrifying 10 tracks capturing the band’s infectious energy that’s 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:
“‘Moving Ahead’ is a culmination of several things. Our vocalist Sujit had recently moved to the US so we would be recording and mixing without him. We had several issues with our mixing engineer, deaths in the family, injuries etc. Despite all the hindrances, once we heard the finished product, we were sure that we had the right album title for our debut. When we first released ‘Moving Ahead’ in India, there were a lot of folks whom raised their eyebrows with our song titles like ‘Sex Machine’ and ‘Casual Bitch’ so we look forward to its North American reception.”
“Moving Ahead” is now available for download at Bandcamp: https://overhungofficial.bandcamp.com

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!”
