Full album to be released on February 22nd
New Jersey thrashers OVERKILL will unleash their 19th studio record, ‘The Wings Of War’, on February 22, 2019, via Nuclear Blast and the band has released the second single entitled, ‘Head Of A Pin’. Watch the lyric video here:
Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “‘Head of a Pin’ took a long time to come together, it is probably the tune that went through the most changes and the last one I finished. Looking back on its development, the time invested was all well worth it. The tonality of the guitar shines on it and the song goes ‘other places’, traditional with a touch of the down-low-dirty riff, and a sing-along chorus…personally, one of my favourites off ‘The Wings of War.'”
