PRE ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW! OVERKILL has debuted an all new music video for their newest single "Armorist" exclusively via NOISEY MUSIC today. Directed by long time collaborator Kevin J. Custer, the video depicts the raw power that emulates from the bands viscous live show. "We had a head banging riot working with Kevin Custer, he has an eye for the performance and the fast editing hand. Just what the doctor ordered for a face-melting, thrash-a-thon!," says frontman Bobby Blitz.
This is the third time Custer has directed the band's visual element. Prior to "Armorist" he was tapped for "Bring Me The Night," from Ironbound in 2010 and "Electric Rattlesnake" from The Electric Age in 2012. Blitz continues, "I was quite blown away with his use of natural light in Armorist, as if he let the sun in through the windows, then controlled how it was used. Horns up Kids, here comes the Overkill/Custer, Armorist!"
The band has quite a bit of touring lined up with a highlighted performance scheduled at Heavy Montreal Festival on August 9th. After that the band will embark on a U.S. tour, view all dates here. Tickets are on sale now.
This year’s White Devil Armory is as vital, powerful, aggressive and melodic as any of the albums in Overkill’s ridiculously impressive back catalog, which stretches over 16 slabs of genre defining and redefining molten metal. The crunch is unmistakable. The voice is irreplaceable. Get less than a minute into White Devil Armory and it’s clear it’s Overkill. No pretense, no musical red herrings. This is tried and true, always trusted thrash metal.
