Overkill finished off its “Welcome to the Garden State” video docu-series this week.
The band debuted the last video in the series on Monday. In the series’ finale, the band’s members discuss the defining moments that have shaped each man through the band’s evolution.
Front man Bobby Blitz offered his thoughts on those moments in a recent interview.
“Those defining moments make us what we are today,” Blitz said. “So to say you are proud of yourself this many years later, you go back and say that’s because of those defining moments. That’s because it made me the person I am today, or it made us the team we are whatever; through the lean times, rich times, good times or bad times. I think we always had the same ideas. I think we always had the same ideas, but we had the same preparation.”
Overkill has released seven other videos previously in the series, with each video covering a variety of topics. The whole list of videos and topics is noted below.
Part I: Band Origin & Name
Part II: Early influences the Genre
Part III; East Coast vs. West Coast
Part IV: Old School Venues & Social Media!
Part V: “Hello From The Gutter” music video, & the origins of their symbol: the bat skull (Chaly)
Part VI: Album Out Tomorrow
Part VII: Rise Of The Internet And The Evolution Of Digital Audio And Social Media
The premiere of Overkill’s latest addition to its “Welcome to the Garden State” discussion comes a little more than a week after the debut of the seventh entry in the series and a little more than two weeks after the band debuted the music video for its latest single, ‘Welcome to the Garden State.’
‘Welcome to the Garden State’ is the third single to be released from Overkill’s new album The Wings of War. It follows the release of ‘Head of a Pin‘ and ‘Last Man Standing,’ both of which have had their own companion videos crafted.
