Overkill Finish New Album

Overkill have officially finished their new album. D.D. Verni confirmed the news during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation” and also said it will probably be released in February.

Verni said the following:

“We actually just finished mixing the new record — just buttoned it up two days ago. I just got the final sequencing and all that, so that’s all buttoned up. We’re working on the cover now. We still don’t have a title — we’re gonna have to come up with that soon — but we have a lot of things floating around. And the new release will probably be in February. The first week of March we’re on tour back in Europe, and then we’re back here in the States — we’re working on the States tour right now. So that’ll come out end of February next year, and then we’ll be off and running; there’ll be a lot of OVERKILL touring — festival season in the States, in Europe, back and forth, all over. The usual routine — try to hit everywhere.”

Overkill Planning To Release New Album In February 2019

During an interview with The Metal Voice, Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth revealed that Overkill are planning to release their new album in February 2019. He said the following about the effort:

“I think we caught a wave on the last four records. Part of that wave was Ron Lipnicki behind the drums, and Ron is now gone, so I don’t know what to expect. But the beauty of it is that when you’re inside the writing team, that’s what becomes motivational.

“Now, obviously, it’s gonna be a heavy metal record; we don’t deviate so much from our formula. But what is that record gonna sound like? At this point, it sounds like a metal record to me. I think Jason Bittner’s addition to the band is gonna make it bombastic in some cases; he’s the state of the art when it comes to hitting the skins. So I really think that we have an opportunity here to make something that is great. Who knows? It could be a new chapter, and somewhere in that realm of unknown is what excites me now.”
