Overview

this shit is serious. the former-five-piece overview is so serious about their music that they fucking killed their spare guitar player. the band’s first full-length, "the virgin misconception", is a progressive, alternative rock statement about modern society, with a sound that is both experimental and energetic. however, the four core members of overview are devoted to honing their craft, and wanted to create a more focused and forceful sound. to reach their ideal vocal-driven indie rock sound, they knew they had to eliminate the second guitar player.

this shit is serious. the former-five-piece overview is so serious about their music that they fucking killed their spare guitar player. the band’s first full-length, "the virgin misconception", is a progressive, alternative rock statement about modern society, with a sound that is both experimental and energetic. however, the four core members of overview are devoted to honing their craft, and wanted to create a more focused and forceful sound. to reach their ideal vocal-driven indie rock sound, they knew they had to eliminate the second guitar player.

they did what they had to do.

during a rehearsal session, breaking off in the middle of a song, drummer sam totty threw his drumstick at the single ceiling light, plunging the room into darkness. singer spencer dräger kicked the legs out from under the unsuspecting guitarist, erupting in maniacal laughter that was as clear and melodic as it was unsettling. the soon to be solo-surviving guitarist brian damert swung his fender stratocaster through the darkness, bringing the battle axe down on the unsuspecting guitar player’s skull. blood flew unseen across the studio space, splashing across cymbals with a wet slapping sound. the darkness, and a gorgeous mane of chestnut brown hair, concealed the grim determination showing on greg sellin’s face as he bludgeoned the figure on the floor, wielding his p-bass with great ferocity and might. not a word was spoken, and as the dying man breathed his last, blood-choked breath, the empty darkness was filled with absolute silence. they put on a few led zeppelin tracks while they cleaned up, and buried the broken body behind the parking lot while listening to doves' newest disc. leaving their old sound in a shallow grave behind them, the brand new four-piece stepped out of the blood-stained studio and into a bright, gleaming future.

this intense experience tightened the bonds between the four, and overview is now officially a lean, mean, motherfucking killing machine. they stand on the brink of an intense schedule of tours. they will descend upon the american heartland with all the rock that can be packed in a van, bringing it across the nation to feed to the sonically-starved masses. « hide
