Overkill Album & Tour Pushed Back

Link

New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL have pushed back the projected release date of their new album to July from the previously announced March. As a result, the band has postponed all shows originally scheduled for March (except for the U.K. dates) to the fall.

Said OVERKILL in a statement: "We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!"

OVERKILL's new CD will be released in North America via eOne Music and in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records.

Speaking to Steppin' Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth stated about the band's upcoming album: "The new record has a blend of what we've done over the past half decade. I'm noticing it's a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don't know. But my feeling is it's an eclectic collection of moments from us. 'The Electric Age' came across, to me, as kind of a two-dimensional thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it."

That's too bad that it's being pushed back, but hopefully it is worth the wait!

The fact that Blitz thought Electric Age was 2 dimensional is a good sign to me and he wants something better than that album which wasn't bad but was a small letdown after Ironbound.

Yeah, I'm worried about that too. These guys aren't getting any younger and Blitz has already had his fair share of health problems.

I don't care about the pushing back, especially as my show gets kept But I do care about the "old school face melting thrash" comment. In recent interviews Blitz basically admitted the last record was pretty monotonous and straight forward, and the new one would be heavier and more interesting. I hope they're not going back on that plan.

Yes, basically this, although I didn't think Ironbound was all that special either.

Ironbound was the best thing they've done since Horrorscope. You's crazy.

Based on ravenhead's quotes if he gets the Overkill album he wants that is a bad BAD thing.
