Overchains: Quarantine Story

by Ivona Bogner

In Corona Corner, we are asking musicians how the outbreak has effected them, how did they adapt to the situation, what did they learn. From Umbria, Italy, today we have special quarantine report. Ladies and gentleman, Overchains!

Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
Hi, we are doing fine,we are working at our music from home and we are waiting September for the release of our first album; during this time we were able to reflect on ourselves and our music.

What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
Our live gigs and the release party has all been postponed due to the virus, but we are trying organizing a big tour right now hoping that is going to start in 2021.

How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
In a very hard way, it’s difficult for the bands right now to organize anything because you don’t know how’s the future is gonna be like and when it will return to normality.

How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
Thanks to social medias we can be in touch everyday with our fan base so it’s not so different than before the virus.

What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
It will come back stronger than before,both the bands and the crowd, the first shows after lockdown will be absolute chaos!

Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
We think everybody that works in music will suffer in a similar way, we just have to be strong and wait for better times.

What is your isolation soundtrack?
Up to now we are listening to a lot of different types of music so it’s difficult to pick one that is the same for all the members of our band. We did listen to a lot of different music in quarantine though.

Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
We miss our after shows where we stay together with our friends and fans, and we also miss to create music all together in one room because we usually spend a lot of time together both inside and outside the rehearsal room.

Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
During the quarantine we made some video calls to plan the release of the album and the future video clip but we never met to play music in a traditional way. Now  that the lockdown is partially over we have started building our new rehearsal room, so we’re going to re-start rehearsal as soon as it is finished!

Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
