OVER-SCORE

OVER-SCORE are a UK based, fist-pumping, head-banging, relentless hard rock band with a taste for good beer and loud music.

Raised in working-class Lancashire, frontman Joe Boult leads the band through furious riffs and deafening vocals, harmonised by Ollie Miles’ screeching lead guitar, rooted by Chris Darlington’s snarling bass lines, and glued together by the metronomic force of Oliver Demko on drums.

Their band manager told us:

“[With their] pounding riffs, energetic performances and megaphone solos, not a promotor in the world can come between them, their audience, and their show the way they want it to be”.

The band regularly update their fans on their Facebook  and BandCamp.

The Sheratones were described by James Chappell of Get Surrey as:

“Woking Rockers with an anarchic Arctic Monkeys-esque sneer”

The entire band, (all 58 of them!) crammed into a car to connect to us via conference call to take part in Three Match Ban(d)s.
