Overkill announce European tour


Overkill have announced a 17-date European headline tour.

They wrapped up a run of UK dates last month, and frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth says while they’ve been spending a lot of time on the road, work on the follow-up to 2014’s White Devil Armory will soon begin.

He says: “Here we go again. With a lead foot and speed, and a hammering stampede, as our ears they will bleed, we are preparing to start recording our next project.

“The riffs and ideas have been flying and exploding – all systems are go and the wheels are rolling.”

Overkill will be joined on the road by Crowbar, Shredhead and Desecrator.

In addition to the newly announced dates, Overkill were this week confirmed for the inaugural Ozzfest Meets Knotfest event, which will take place at the San Manuel Amphitheatre in San Bernardino, California, on the weekend of September 24-25.
