Legendary New Jersey thrash group Overkill is all geared up to release their nineteenth album of their career in 2019, and their first with drummer Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall). Overkill has announced The Wings Of War to be out on February 22 and has unveiled the predictably green-tinged artwork.
The record will also feature a song called "Welcome To The Garden State," which better be about terrible mass transit and traffic are around here.
Here's what Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth had to say about the record.
“It was a blast making The Wings of War! It is something old feeling new again, as our chemistry was altered by the addition of Jason Bittner. I was curious from the get-go, how would it pan out? I think what we accomplished here is a new, upgraded Overkill that embraced the new chemistry, while taking our roots into the present. The new formula produced not only more raw power, but more places to go with melody, a win, win. The key is being not only interested in the change, but part of it. I’ll tell you what, it’s still fun as hell making Overkill records.”
Expect a single soon.
