will release their seventeenth LP White Devil Armory tomorrow 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 on August 9th (and FlashWounds will be there to cover it!). 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 incomparable. Get less than a minute into White Devil Armory and there’s no doubt that this is prime Overkill: no pretense, no musical red herrings, just tried and true, always balls-to-the-wall thrash metal. 

You can pre-order via iTunes here now, and order the album via Nuclear Blast here.

 “Overkill, a quintet that has pulled off the implausible trick of hitting their stride after more than three decades.” ~ 8/10 DECIBEL 

“‘White Devil Armory’ is really defined by its dynamically shifting epics, including the cinematic opus ‘Freedom Rings’ and the album closing ‘In the Name,’ which boasts a Dio-style grandeur.”  ~ 4/5 REVOLVER 

“Young pups should shake in their boots, as this album delivers song after song of souped-up speed metal.” ~ 8/10 EXCLAIM!
