It’s well-documented that New Jersey thrash act Overkill can kick your ass any time or day of the week. Now, the band have revealed that they have announced that they have a new album in the works for 2022, and have a U.S. tour with Prong coming up to support it.

Overkill posted the following picture to their Twitter, with the caption, Signing off for the year! (Unless we have some news to share that is!) Here’s to 2022! New record, new tours! From everyone in Overkill thanks for your continued support, you guys fucking rule! Happy holidays, stay safe! See you on the road next year!”


“We’re recording it right now,” said Overkill bassist D.D. Verni in September, via Blabbermouth. “A good portion of it’s done. It keeps getting moved, frankly, depending on the COVID situation, when we can tour. At first, we thought, ‘What difference does it make whether we tour or not? Just put a record out.’ And then we thought, ‘We really wanna put out the music and then bring it to the people.’ That’s the fun. It’s not just putting it out and just saying, ‘There you go’; it’s then being able to tour it and bring it and put it out there. So right now, we have a tour set for March here in the States, and then in April and May in Europe next year. The plan is to maybe have a record with that, with both those tours.”

Meanwhile, the band’s 2022 tour with groove metal forefathers Prong focuses entirely on the East Coast and Rust Belt, kicking off along the Hudson and ending in the Poconos.
