The LOUDEST band in Pakistan is back. And making more noise than ever.

The famous rock band Overload from Lahore, Pakistan, which formed in 2004, has gradually gained popularity through its diverse and awe-inspiring music ever since the beginning. The group has released two albums, one self-titled, released in 2006, and one in 2009 named Pichal Pairee.

Overload now consists of Farhad Humayun on vocals and drums (one of the best known drummers in Pakistan), Sheraz on keyboards and Nasir Sain on the ear-pounding Dhol. Session artists include Farhan Ali on bass, Shahzad Hameed and Haider Hashmi on guitars and Kaala Sain on the Dhol. Meera (Meesha) Shafi is no longer within the line-up.
