Watch Overkill in striking video for Welcome To The Garden State

Overkill

Overkill have released a video for their new single Welcome To The Garden State.

It’s been taken from the band’s new studio album The Wings Of War, which was released today (February 22) via Nuclear Blast.

The video was produced by Videohammer Studios and directed by Tommy Jones – and Overkill frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth says he’s delighted at the final result.

He says: “Not before in our video history have we presented something so artistically-seedy. 

“This is 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 verbalised 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?”

Overkill will head out on tour across the UK and Europe in March, where they’ll be joined by Destruction, Flotsam And Jetsam and Meshiaak.
