Overwrought is a melodic black metal band from Bellingham Washington
Here’s some questions we asked the band
1. How long have you been a band (when founded an by who,)?
We have been a band since 2016, the band was founded by Trevor, Nate and Drake but Keanen and Andrew both joined very soon after.
2. How would you describe your “sound” ?
Melodic black metal mixed with heavy metal and hard rock. Lots of melodies and harmonies spruced with rock n’ roll inspired riffs and a few atmospheric, mellow breaks.
3. What are your goals as a band ?
To make music that captures aspects of our favorite bands while also creating something unique. We also hope to make multiple full-length albums and eventually tour across the US.
4. What struggles do you experience as a band ?
Getting our band known outside of our home town has been hard work, but we are up for the challenge! Balancing our work lives with playing and gigging can be a bit tricky as well.
5. Tell me a bit about your name ?
Keanen and Nate came up with the idea of using “Overwrought” for a band name after hearing it used briefly in the film “The Witch.” There are a few different definitions of the word but we intend it to mean strained, labored, anxious.
