Act Of Defiance Drop Off Overkill & Death Angel’s U.S. Tour

Act Of Defiance have decided to drop off their U.S. tour with Overkill and Death Angel so guitarist Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth) could be free to tour with In Flames. Mothership will now be taking their place.

Tour Statement Unfortunately @actofdefiance is not going on tour this April with @deathangelofficial and @overkillofficial . We were really looking forward to touring with our friends in those bands but in light of the fact that In Flames asked me to continue filling in for Niclas during the start of their new CD cycle and AOD is wrapping up our Old Scars, New Wounds CD cycle, I have decided to continue touring with In Flames. Act Of Defiance will start looking at our next CD release and pick up any tours time permitting. Thanks for all of your support and understanding. Check out www.InFlames.com/tour/ my current schedule. I look forward to seeing you all on the road. -Chris Photo credit: @stephaniedcabral #StephanieCabralPhotography #chrisbroderick #ActofDefiance #InFlames

Motörhead Stream Remastered Single Edit Of “Overkill”

Motörhead are streaming a remastered single edit of their song “Overkill.” This version of the track is available in digital outlets now and it will also be released on Record Store Day (April 13) as part of an “Overkill“/”Bomber” 7″ picture disc. That release is one of two the band have planned for Record Store Day, with the other being a 7″ featuring their cover of the Ramones‘ “Rockaway Beach.”

Watch Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth Perform Motörhead’s “Overkill” With A Tribute Band

Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth joined Motörhead tribute band Headmotör onstage for a cover of Motörhead’s “Overkill.” The performance took place on February 22 in Jamesburg, New Jersey as part of an album release party for Overkill’s new album “The Wings Of War.”

Overkill Premiere “Welcome To The Garden State” Music Video

Overkill have premiered a new video for their new song “Welcome To The Garden State.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Wings Of War,“ which was released today (February 22). Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth commented:

“Not before in our video history have we presented something so artistically-seedy. This due to the brilliant yet twisted, vision of the editing room genius, behind the camera magic and damn tenacity of Mr. Tommy Jones; a good standing card carrying Jersey Boy, who did the band and the state proud. We had verbalized the story line to Tommy, who fully got it and we all created something to be proud of. So when you visit the Garden State, see or hear something that is different for you and you think, ‘hmmmm that’s not the way we do it at home.’ Remember this, you’re not at home anymore… are you?”
