This new song could be Overkill’s finest hour

Posted by on October 19, 2016


Hey guys, we’ve only got a little over two months until 2016 wheezes to a halt. It’s been a rough year, so that’s a good thing, no? At any rate, we can already start looking forward to 2017 and the releases it will bring. One of those is Overkill, whose The Grinding Wheel will be released in February. To tide fans over, the band have released a lyric video for “Our Finest Hour.” According to Blabbermouth, the single will become officially available on November 4th, the same week the band’s European tour kicks off. Here’s what vocalist Bobby Blitz says about the album’s delay and the launch of the single:

“Looks like the ‘machine’ is up and rolling, but for all good things we wait. “The delay for ‘The Grinding Wheel’ will take us to February 2017, at the start of the U.S. tour… but fear not, the Euro tour will happen and happen with some new music!

“Friday, November 4th, we will let go of the first cut; ‘Our Finest Hour’, available on various colors of vinyl along with some ear-shattering madness. We will also have it with us on the road to quench your thirst and fill the hunger.”So you heard it here first and you can hear more live the first time on tour! To the road, onward and upward into ’17!”
