This May, Overload is staying true to its name and its reputation as the loudest band in Pakistan. The band has paid no heed to the heat, as it recently performed at two important venues with popular American country music band ‘Blended 328’ in what has been one of the hottest months of the year. This resulted in two consecutive energy packed evenings, which were a treat for both the attendees and performers.
Continuing the ‘jazba’, Overload will be performing at the launch of an exciting new international burger chain – Fatburger – on 31st May, 2013.
