Overkill is just about wrapped up recording the follow-up to their 2019 album The Wings of War. Overkill bassist D.D. Verni said in an interview with Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk that the band plans to mix the new album this fall.
"We're still recording. The record's done, for the most part, but we're still recording — still some bass, still some vocals, a good amount of that to be done. We'll probably start mixing in the fall, is what I would think — something like that. And we have Colin Richardson set up to mix the record. He's done a few records for us in the past, and we're psyched about it. He's done a ton of stuff — Slipknot, Machine Head… Just a great mix guy. So we're psyched to get him back on board."
Verni said Overkill expects to release the new album next March alongside a tour.
"We're probably looking at a record and tour… Like everybody, we've had tours all around the time [of the pandemic] that we just keep canceling and moving. So the newest moving one is to be out in the States in March, with the record, and then after that in Europe end of April into May. That's currently what's on the books. But as the months go by, as it gets better, as it gets worse — who the hell knows? That's the current plan."
