Overhead is a Progressive Rock band whose successful releases and live performances around Europe have catapulted the band to the top of the Finnish prog hierarchy. Overhead have released five studio albums, several live releases and toured around Europe many times. Overhead have played at festivals in Germany, France, UK, Italy etc. sharing the stage with bands like Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, Spock's Beard, Anathema, Threshold and Tangerine Dream.

Overhead was formed in 1999 and released a trilogy of studio albums: Zumanthum (2002), Metaepitome (2005) and And We're Not Here After All (2008). The works received excellent reviews, radio play and recognition around the globe.

The success of the albums led to the band touring in rock-clubs and festivals around Europe. The venues ranged from smaller clubs to the palace of The Sun King in Versailles, not forgetting the legendary Spirit of 66 in Belgium, where Overhead has been back by popular demand many times.

In 2009 the band headed to Poland for a festival where Overhead's first DVD Live After All was recorded. The band then went back on the road for their longest tour yet, playing very successful shows around Europe celebrating the 10th anniversary of Overhead.

In 2012 Overhead released Of Sun and Moon which widened the band's sound even further. The release was followed by more live dates and Overhead performed at festivals in the UK and in Italy for the first time. The show in Italy was also filmed and released as a DVD.

After years of hard work the long awaited fifth studio album Haydenspark was released in 2018. The album was a return to the more progressive style and the band sounds its absolute best on this album. Haydenspark was very well received by fans and critics alike.

Reaching the band's 20-year mark in 2019, Overhead was the first Finnish band ever to play at Europe's biggest progressive rock festival Night of the Prog held at the legendary Loreley amphitheater in Germany. The show was recorded and released as a live album Live at Loreley.

Overhead is now writing new material for their next studio album and planning more live dates for 2020.
