Legendary New Jersey thrashers Overkill are pleased to announce a UK and European tour for March 2019, in support of their upcoming, as untitled new studio album. Overkill will be joining forces with the German cult thrash metal band and label mates Destruction, legendary thrashers Flotsam and Jetsam and up and coming Australian thrash squad Meshiaak for the ‘KILLFEST TOUR 2019’. Their run will also include a performance at Hammerfest XI which will take place at Pwllheli in North Wales.
Overkill vocalist Bobby Blitz commented:
“ONE MORE FUCKING TIME! Let the the shit fall away and the metal rule the day. Overkill comes to Europe and the UK in March 2019 on the release of the new album. So get your necks ready boys and girls, it’s going to be dangerous!”
Schmier from Destruction adds:
“Touring with some of the most influential American thrash icons is always a pleasure. We became good friends over all of those years, I’m happy we are ALL still around and we can thrash Europe and the UK together. Also some of the Australian boys from Meshiaak have toured with us Down Under before with their predecessor band 4ARM. What an intense family-reunion…hahaha!
This is undoubtedly a killer package for the enthusiastic European metal fans – we will present Destruction in fantastic form and with a terrific new drummer!”
