Overkill is back after four years with a thrashy new single "The Surgeon" and a brand new record Scorched due out April 14. Scorched was mixed by Colin Richardson and his assistant engineer Chris Clancy, mastered by Maor Appelbaum, and once again features artwork by Travis Smith. Check it out below and pre-order Scorched here.
"Man, it seems like for F-in ever since we chatted!!!! Ha! I tell you what, this is the longest ever between Overkill releases, Feb '19 to April '23," said Overkill frontman Bobby Blitz of the new album.
"For me, it became my 'peterpandemic' go-to. I wrote my part, tore it down, then again and again. I found myself still changing parts while Colin was mixing! It became the normal in a very abnormal time, sanity amongst the insanity. Somewhere in Scorched that is all reflected, a common thread, it is the place I went to get what I needed, maybe what 'we' needed. It's different, that's for sure an old-school approach/mix in a modern world… was it worth the wait? You tell me… see ya on the road! Horns up!"
