Overkill Posts New Music Video Online

Legendary New Jersey thrashers Overkill are proud to unleash their 19th studio record, 'The Wings Of War', today via Nuclear Blast. In celebration of the momentous event, the band offer fans a music video for "Welcome to the Garden State." Check out the infectious song and video that pays homage to Jersey below.

Bobby Blitz comments, "Not before in our video history have we presented something so artistically-seedy. This due to the brilliant yet twisted, vision of the editing room genius, behind the camera magic and damn tenacity of Mr. Tommy Jones; a good standing card carrying Jersey Boy, who did the band and the state proud. We had verbalized the story line to Tommy, who fully got it and we all created something to be proud of. So when you visit the Garden State, see or hear something that is different for you and you think; 'hmmmm that's not the way we do it at home.' Remember this, you're not at home anymore... are you?"

Napalm Death To Play MTV Music Week?

A campaign has been launched to have grindcore pioneers Napalm Death perform at the upcoming MTV Music Week event, a four day long pop festival which is also expected to feature include quadruple platinum selling girl group Little Mix and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, although no names have been confirmed as of yet. Popular bookmakers Paddy Power has Napalm Death at 12/1 to be added to the festival, above other British mainstream acts like Professor Green. A poll to determine which act festival goers would most like to see is running at the Plymouth Argus.

Napalm Death are no strangers to playing outside their comfort zone, having previously played the Glastonbury Festival in 2017 (which was headlined by Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead) and this year will perform at the Boomtown Fair, alongside such acts as Lauryn Hill and UB40. They've also appeared in mainstream shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, TFI Friday and the Craig Charles presented children's show, What's That Noise?

Metal Underground recently spoke with Napalm Death frontman Barney Greenway, discussing progress on their new album, the status of guitarist Mitch Harris, Brexit and his time with Extreme Noise Terror (who are also playing this year's Boomtown Fair.) You can check it out below. More...
