JORN: Three Different Versions Of 'Overload' Video Released

Three different edits of the "Overload" video from JORN, the hard rock band fronted by powerhouse Norwegian singer Jorn Lande (MASTERPLAN, ARK), can be seen below.

Says Lande: "At the time, we didn't see these videos as official music videos, since they were all based on live footage and live images. We thought they would be more suitable as bonus material in connection with a planned future compilation or as something extra on the next studio album.

"The original plan was to put together one video for 'Overload', using the best footage from all the three versions to make the best possible result. I changed my mind and thought it would be a special treat for the fans to release them all as they are.

"I personally like 'Overload' a lot; it is one of my favourite JORN songs, as it is a true massive rocker with a killer riff that hits you right in the face. Being such a great song, it would be a shame to just 'sit' on the material. Life is now and it should be released."

"Overload" is taken from JORN's latest album, "Traveller", which landed at position No. 12 on the official chart in Norway. The CD was released on June 11, 2013 in North America and June 14, 2013 in Europe via Frontiers Records.

Considered one of the greatest legends in rock, and by many as the best male rock singer of the millennium, Lande never seems to stop producing music, and is back with yet another slab of classic first-division heavy rock. "Traveller" is definitely a suitable title to fit this gifted and creative viking's extreme productivity.

During his almost-30-year-long career, his albums have sold millions. He managed to release close to 40 albums with various bands/projects in the past decades, and "Traveller" is his eighth studio album under the Jorn banner. Some say he has passed his successors by his gift of being versatile, and ability to not get stuck in the political frames of the music business. A true independent "freebird" hammering his legacy in stone as he goes, with a band of grounded and solid craftsmen to back up his hurricane force voice.

This album represents the first product of the pairing of Jorn Lande and the new JORN guitarist Trond Holter (WIG WAM, DREAM POLICE). The result is eleven new songs encompassing a variety of moods and styles, with Lande's voice shining through memorable anthems, backed by wonderful grooves and tightly-executed classic and melodic heavy metal. "This album has all the elements of the Jorn legacy," says Lande. "It is heavy, but still very melodic and experimental, and it really rocks! As usual we haven't spent much time analyzing the material before recording it, this is an album about life, doom and death reflecting on what I know and thoughts about what I don't."

JORN recently parted ways with longtime drummer Willy Bendiksen

The band in July 2013 announced the addition of bassist Thomas Bekkevold to the group's ranks.
