The Overtones (Aust) / Bio

The Overtones
Sydney based band “The Overtones” are a 3 piece melodic alternative original power rock band. Think Sunnyboys, Ramones, Green Day, The Jam and Radio Birdman with 3 part harmonies.
A visually exciting action packed energetic show with dynamic stagecraft, with audience participation they have played an unprecedented amount of shows since reforming - will leave you screaming for more!
Recent I–94 Bar review of The Overtones show with The New Christs said:
“The Overtones. They’re re-convened from the ‘80s and play bustling, power-trio rock. The focus is Dave Tozer’s beefy guitar. A couple of well-placed covers - tackling a classic like “(I’m) Stranded” takes guts but comes off really well - pepper an original set.”
The band has 2 releases available on Itunes and Spotify, EP titled “Full Boar” and a newly released album titled “Full Tilt!“ which features Saints classic "Stranded"
The Overtones played at the Meatstock Festival, Sydney Olympic Park (Sold Out) Sat Feb 13 along with such Bands The Beards, Henry Wagons, Blind Ray and The Snowdroppers
Some highlights include shows with: The New Christs, Four Stooges, Hell Crab City, Amazing Wooloomooloosers, Loose Pills, and Mushroom Planet to name a few and Dave singing with the Lime Spiders at the Bloodbank Benefit.
The band’s EP which features guest guitarist "Brad Carr ex Choirboys" was recently featured on national radio Triple M “Home grown show” and has had constant radio airplay on community radio stations especially Sydney’s popular 2RRR.
The band’s founding member and songwriter is Dave Tozer on vocals and Rickenbacker guitars (Ex Sunnyboys Show, Broken Silence), Pat Frisina on bass guitar (ex Brave & Crazy, Comic Book Heroes, Felix) and Lyndon Watson on drums (ex Brain Capers) .
The Band has clocked up close to 80 shows in the last 2 years....this is just the beginning !!!!!
