Legendary New Jersey thrashers, OVERKILL, released their latest live album titled Live In Overhausen, on May 18th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. Today, the band are pleased to announce an extended European tour for March 2019 in support of their upcoming, untitled new studio album. OVERKILL will be joining forces with the German cult thrash metal band and label mates DESTRUCTION, legendary thrash metallers FLOTSAM & JETSAM and up and coming Australian thrash squad MESHIAAK for the KILLFEST TOUR 2019.
Commented OVERKILL vocalist Bobby Blitz: “ONE MORE FUCKING TIME! Let the the shit fall away and the metal rule the day. OVERKILL comes to Europe in march 2019 on the release of the new album. So get your necks ready boys and girls, it’s going to be dangerous!”
Schmier from DESTRUCTION adds: “Touring with some of the most influential American Thrash icons is always a pleasure. We became good friends over all those years, I’m happy we are ALL still around and we can thrash Europe together. Also some of the Australian boys from MESHIAAK have toured with us Down Under before with their predecessor band 4 ARM. What an intense family-reunion…hahaha! This is undoubtedly a killer package for the enthusiastic European metal fans for sure – we will present DESTRUCTION in fantastic form and with a terrific new drummer! „
