From The Press Release

Recently, the band offered fans a music video for the track “Welcome to the Garden State“. Check out the infectious song and video that pays homage to Jersey here: https://youtu.be/ujkLk9pVKwE

Bobby Blitz comments, “Not before in our video history have we presented something so artistically-seedy. This 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 verbalized 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 kick off their The Wings Over USA 2019 tour on April 25th in Baltimore. The trek will make stops in Pittsburgh, Chicago and Nashville before concluding in Boston on May 11th.

Bobby Blitz comments “We look forward to bringing ‘The Wings’ over the USA. 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!”
