New Jersey thrash metal veterans OVERKILL have inked a U.S. deal with E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records) for the release of their new album, "Ironbound". The CD, which will be issued in Europe on January 29, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records, was mixed by PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren and is described in a press release as "a true thrasher-piece."
OVERKILL will tour in support of "Ironbound" beginning in February in Europe. South America dates will take place in March and a U.S. tour will kick off April 1 in Philadelphia and end on May 1 with a big 25th-anniversary show in New York City at the Nokia Theater. The band says, "We have lots of plans to make that a special celebration show for everyone. "
