OVERKILL Guitarist To Sit Out Upcoming Tour For "Personal Reasons"

Phil Demmel is in.

Overkill Demmel

Overkill will hit the road this week with Prong, and with a slightly different lineup. Overkill guitarist Dave Linsk is sitting out the tour for "personal reasons" and will be replaced by guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-Lence). Demmel previously filled in with Overkill in November 2021, so it should be a smooth-as-hell transition.

"We've used Phil in the past when we've had issues," said vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth. "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. Let's get back to normal. Let's do what we do best. Let's have a little bit of fun."
