Posted by on February 28, 2022



According to the Chicago Tribune, Overkill guitarist Dave Linsk will sit out the March 2022 U.S. tour due to “personal reasons.” Stepping in will be former Machine Head and current Vio-Lence guitarist Phil Demmel.

Overkill frontman Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth said:

“We’ve used Phil in the past when we’ve had issues. We’re prepared. We’re ready. It’s not about the strength of the individual but about the strength of the unit. We found that out with Phil when he stepped in. It’s just nice to be able to do what you do whether you’re the concertgoer or whether you’re the concert performer,” he added. “Let’s get back to normal. Let’s do what we do best. Let’s have a little bit of fun.”

Overkill’s U.S. tour with Prong will kick off on March 3 in Poughkeepsie, New York and conclude on March 19 in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

Overkill has spent the last few months recording its new studio album for a tentative 2022 release.
