Overkill is giving audiences their first preview of its next album.
The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Last Man Standing‘ on Friday. The song is the first listen from the band’s upcoming album The Wings Of War, the band’s 19th full-length studio recording.
Front man Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth offered a brief comment on the song in a recent interview, explaining its placement on the album’s sequence.
“The time has come for a first taste, ‘Last Man Standing,’ Ellsworth said. “This cut got the unanimous nod to open Wings of War all the way back to the first demos in March, so much so it was mock titled ‘Opener’ up until the recording. Sometimes, everyone is on the same page. WTF! So, dig into some old-school thrash, with a side order of Jersey-made head banging.”
The Wings Of War is currently scheduled to be released Feb. 22 via Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-orders are open now. It will be available on a variety of platforms, all of which are noted below.
