Singer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth of New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL has just entered the studio to begin laying down the vocals on the band’s new album. The album is being tracked at Gear Recording and will be mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012′s The Electric Age.
The first three songtitles to be revealed from the forthcoming OVERKILL album are as follows: “Where There’s Smoke”, “Amorist” and “Pig.”
OVERKILL pushed back the projected release date of its 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 album will be released in North America via eOne Music and in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records.
