Rock and roll group from Chicago, Illinois, USA, based around the core songwriting duo of Nash Kato and Eddie "King" Roeser. Kato and Roeser both play guitar and sing lead and backing vocals (depending generally on which of them wrote the song). The current rhythm section is Adam Arling and Nate Arling, also of The Last Vegas.
After an eight-year hiatus subsequent to breaking up in 1996, Urge Overkill reformed quietly in 2004 to play live shows and solidify the current line-up.
The group released their first new song in fifteen years, "Effigy", on September 14, 2010, as a taster for their forthcoming album, "Rock&Roll Submarine", which is due to be released May 10, 2011. Pre-orders for the album commenced April 26. 2011, and included free instant digital download of the album.
