Veteran New Jersey thrashers OVERKILL have announced their first pandemic-era concert — “609 f!!kin’ days” after they were supposed to play the same venue before the coronavirus crisis forced everything to shut down.
OVERKILL‘s November 13 performance at The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey is a make-up date for the show that was originally scheduled to take place March 14, 2020. Support at the gig will come from DEMOLITION HAMMER and SWORN ENEMY. Tickets are available here.
OVERKILL has spent the last few months recording its new studio album for a tentative late 2021 release.
OVERKILL spent most of 2019 and early 2020 touring in support of its 19th studio LP, “The Wings Of War”, which was released more than two years ago. The disc was recorded at Gear Recording Studio in New Jersey, SKH Studio in Florida and Jrod Productions with engineering handled by Verni and guitarist Dave Linsk. The album was produced by the band while Chris “Zeuss” Harris took care of the mixing and mastering. Travis Smith (NEVERMORE, OPETH, SOILWORK, DEATH) was again enlisted to create the artwork for the album. “The Wings Of War” marked OVERKILL‘s recording debut with drummer Jason Bittner (SHADOWS FALL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), who joined the band in 2017.
