As we previously reported via our interview with Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth (see a few posts down), Overkill has made its upcoming U.S. tour with Death Angel and Act of Defiance official.
Overkill has announced “The Wings over USA” 2019 tour. Kicking off April 25 in Baltimore, the tour will make stops in Pittsburgh, Chicago and Nashville before concluding May 11 in Boston. Joining the tour are none other than
San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends and label mates Death Angel and Act of Defiance, featuring ex-members of Megadeth, Shadows Fall and Scar the Martyr will join Overkill on the tour.
“We look forward to bringing ‘The Wings’ over the USA,” Ellsworth said. “It’s been a long road but the journey is not over yet. Death Angel and Act of Defiance join us on this jaunt so prepare yourself for a righteous beating. Let the headbanging begin in April!”
Overkill will be touring in support of “The Wings of War,” which was recorded at Gear Recording Studio in New Jersey, SKH Studio in Florida, Shorefire Studio and Jrod Productions with engineering handled by DD and Dave. The album was produced by the band while Chris “Zeuss” Harris handled thie mixing and mastering. Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Soilwork, Death) again was enlisted to create the artwork for the album.
