Here’s a blast from the past…… a ticket from one of the very 1st OVERHAUL shows. This is from 25th Sept 1998. What do I remember of this night……. not a lot actually. I do however vaguely remember being very nervous and extremely excited. This was one of the first ticketed live performance OVERHAUL did and I also vaguely remember that our performance was VERY stiff. We’ve definitely loosened up since then but we still get extremely excited and less nervous hahahaha – Andy Gallagher
Woo Hoo!!!! It’s with tremendous excitement that we can announce that Overhaul will be opening for Grant Hart formally of Husker Du on 23rd Oct ’13. Andy has even been asked to join Grant on stage for a couple of songs. To say Andy is excited…… We’re still trying to scrape him off the ceiling hahahaha.
It’s with tremendous honour and excitement to announce that Andy and Graham have officially agreed to join Gordon Gano and The Ryans. Andy will be playing bass guitar and backing vocals and Graham will be on drums for the UK tour dates.

Overhaul are opening for Dinosaur Jr. To say Andy is over the moon is a bit of an understatement!!!! Dinosaur Jr. has and always will be one of Overhaul’s biggest influences and we have been given the amazing opportunity to open for them at this years T on The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland on 27th August ’07.
