The band made its debut in 2002, at the Mako International Youth Filmfestival. With their English songs, special sound, and the spectacular video show accompanying the gigs, Overdream has proved to be successful in creating a special atmosphere on stage. Their first album, "Navigator" has just been released in the summer of 2006. After working in the studio, the band is ready to hit the road and bring their music to everyone …
