Legendary New Jersey thrashers OVERKILL will unleash their 19th studio record, The Wings Of War, on February 22, 2019 via Nuclear Blast.
Today, the band releases the second single entitled, "Head Of A Pin". Watch the lyric video here:
Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth comments, "Head of a Pin" took a long time to come together, it is probably the tune that went through the most changes and the last one I finished. Looking back on it's development, the time invested was all well worth it. The tonality of the guitar shines on it and the song goes 'other places', traditional with a touch of the down-low-dirty riff, and a sing-along chorus...personally, one of my favorites off The Wings of War."
Recently, the band launched their multi-part documentary series entitled "Welcome To The Garden States". Watch the various parts below:
Part I: Band Origin & Name
Part II: Early influences the Genre
Stay tuned for the upcoming episodes that will detail the journey to the upcoming album, The Wings Of War..
Watch the lyric video for the first single, "Last Man Standing" here:
Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth comments, "The time has come, for a first taste, 'Last Man Standing'. This cut got the unanimous nod to open The Wings of War, all they way back to the first demos in March, so much so, it was mock titled OPENER up until the recording. Sometimes everyone is on the same page, wtf!. So dig into some old school thrash, with a side order of Jersey made, head-banging."
