We look forward to banging out the new tunes, as well as some of the old-school classics we have banged our heads to over these past 28 years of touring. Until then, Horns UP!" The dates are as follows: Oct. 30 - Barcelona, Spain - Razz2 Oct. 31 - Madrid, Spain - Shoko Nov. 01 - Lisbon, Portugal - Paradise Garaje Nov. 02 - Bilbao, Spain - Kafe Antzokia Nov. 04 - Milano, Italy - Live Club Nov. 05 - Pratteln, Switzerland - Z 7 Nov. 06 - Karlsruhe, Germany - Substage Nov. 07 - Osnabrück, Germany - Rosenhof Nov. 08 - Bremen, Germany - Tivoli Nov. 09 - Nürnberg, Germany - Hirsch Nov. 11 - Aschaffenburg, Germany - Colos Saal Nov. 12 - Hamburg, Germany - Markthalle Nov. 13 - Berlin, Germany - Postbahnhof Nov. 14 - Cologne, Germany - Essigfabrik Nov. 15 - Uden, Netherlands - De Pul OVERKILL will release its new album, "White Devil Armory", in July in North America via eOne Music and in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and was mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012's "The Electric Age". "White Devil Armory" track listing: 01. Freedom Rings 02. Where There's Smoke... 03. Pig 04. Amorist 05. Down To The Bone 06. Bitter Pill 07. King Of The Rat Bastards 08. Another Day To Die 09. It's All Yours 10. In The Name The cover artwork for "White Devil Armory" can be seen below. Speaking to Steppin' Out magazine, Ellsworth stated about the band's upcoming album: "The new record has a blend of what we've done over the past half decade. I'm noticing it's a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don't know. But my feeling is it's an eclectic collection of moments from us. 'The Electric Age' came across, to me, as kind of a two-dimensional thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it." OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of "The Electric Age" in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as a four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010. "The Electric Age" sold 6,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 77 on The Billboard 200 chart. OVERKILLWHITEDEVILARMORYCOVER
