OVRFWRD is a four piece all instrumental band formed in late 2012 from Minneapolis, MN. A diverse sound palette with hints of rock, jazz, and classical: the sound of a band working to always make progress, never satisfied with genre or status.

With a growing catalog, they are now releasing their third full length album. Returning from the Fantasy Absent Reason tour that included legs with Stick Men (featuring members of King Crimson) and Kings X, they keep it moving forward by heading back in the studio with new material. In addition, in Fall 2017, OVRFWRD was filmed and recorded live at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, MN. Occupations of Uninhabited Space - audio and video releasing in 2018.

Fierce. Over the top. Subtle changes. Playing in the moment. That’s the fun part. Building from a solid foundation, but always with fresh surprises when discovering where the music will land.

Barbarians at the gate, OVRFWRD is an instrumental band looking to prove every silent word.

Hardcore Crayons

Hardcore Crayons has a large array of influential artists, including the likes of Primus, Dub Trio, Bad Brains, Fugazi, King Tubby, Soul Coughing, Don Caballero... Elements of these artists seep their way into the songs created by this Minneapolis power trio. What is eventually created is truly a unique, energetic, and inspiring experience. Hardcore Crayons can and will change from eerie dub grooves, with delayed snare, looped, psychedelic guitar riffs, thumping bass, to harsh, bob-your-head-cause-you-just-can't-help-it metal.
