overkill640 Jersey thrash lords OVERKILL have debuted an all new single today titled Armorist from their highly anticipated new LP White Devil Armory due out July 22nd.

“Seems like a long time coming, but the wait is over! I’m stoked, we’re stoked, are you stoked?” says vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth. The band recently shot a video for the track with director Kevin J. Custer.

Blitz continues “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls: Nuclear Blast, eOne Music and Overkill proudly present AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARMORIST!” Watch the lyric video below.

Overkill will release their seventeenth LP White Devil Armory on July 22nd via eOne Music in North America, and July 18th overseas via Nuclear Blast. The effort is the follow up to the critically acclaimed The Electric Age released in 2012.

The band has quite a bit of touring lined up with a highlighted performance scheduled at Heavy Montreal Festival on August 9th. After that the band will embark on a U.S. tour, view all dates here. Tickets are on sale now.

This year’s White Devil Armory is as vital, powerful, aggressive and melodic as any of the albums in Overkill’s ridiculously impressive back catalog, which stretches over 16 slabs of genre defining and redefining molten metal. The crunch is unmistakable. The voice is irreplaceable. Get less than a minute into White Devil Armory and it’s clear it’s Overkill. No pretense, no musical red herrings. This is tried and true, always trusted thrash metal.

    I myself have never been a big fan of the thrash genre but I love Overkill and have for many years. They somehow cross over other metal genres without actually not crossing over, if that makes any sense. I guess Overkill is the only thrash band I can tolerate because they kick so much ass. In the end it’s just good kick ass music so I guess it don’t matter what they are categorized as.
