Legendary New Jersey thrashers, OVERKILL, have announced their 2017 North American trek with Egyptian themed Technical Death Metal champions and label mates NILE. The 25-date tour will kick-off on February 14th at The Trocadero in Philadelphia, make stops in Chicago, Anaheim, and Washington, DC before ending at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ.
Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “Can’t wait to roll ‘the wheel’ down the road. This Feb & Mar, USA, coming to a stage near you! Let’s make it another one to remember! Onward! Upward!”
OVERKILL will be touring in support of their upcoming album, The Grinding Wheel, which will be released February 10th via Nuclear Blast. Recently, the band released the video for Our Finest Hour.
NILE is touring in support of their latest release What Should Not Be Unearthed.
“All of us in NILE are really looking forward to the upcoming USA Tour with OVERKILL. This Tour is going to be Metal as Fuck,” comments NILE Mastermind Karl Sanders.
