OVERDRIVE in Japan ' the tour that almost wasn't...

Swedish classic heavy metal band OVERDRIVE are just back from their first Japan tour. A tour that almost ended before it started...

Three days before the band were leaving for Japan, Saturday August 9, they were playing a show in Karlshamn. On the way to the venue, guitarist Janne Stark received a call from drummer Kenta Svensson. Being an actor in a wild west show, he was accidently shot in the hand with a powder gun and badly injured two of his fingers on his right hand making it impossible to play.

OVERDRIVE'S 30 YEARS OF SWORDS AND AXES

Swedish heavy metal band OVERDRIVE celebrate the 30 year anniversary of second album 'Swords And Axes'. The band played the Muskelrock Festival last month and will now bring the weapons to Japan! Two shows have been booked, at Birth Shinjuku in Tokyo on August 15 and Club Zeela in Osaka on August 17. More shows in Sweden are also currently being booked.
- It's funny, playing in Japan was always one of our goals back in the eighties, and now, thirty years later, we're finally playing there, says guitarist Janne Stark.
