The New Jersey-based thrash metal titans from Overkill are delighted to announce they will be returning to the U.K. and Ireland this coming April, 2016 for a run of headline shows entitled the Killfest tour. Enigmatic frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth had to say on the announcement:

“We are happy to announce we are coming back to the UK, to thrash it up with our cousins across the pond! Yes, yes, yes boys and girls from New Jersey to England, Ireland & Scotland the "Wrecking Crew" comes your way next April, kicking off in Birmingham on the 5th. So let’s mark the dates and remember, I'm easily disappointed! HA! Over the wall boys and give 'em the cold steel!!!”

You can see the wrecking crew live in the following cities:
