The members of OVERKILL took part in a press conference on July 9, 2009 prior to the band's performance at the Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma. Watch footage of the question-and-answer session below (courtesy of SplatterTribe.TV).

On May 12, Megaforce Records reissued two classic OVERKILL albums on colored vinyl.

* "Feel The Fire" on red/orange marbled vinyl
* "Fuck You And Then Some" (first time on vinyl!!) which is a double LP set — one LP on regular black vinyl and the other on black/yellow marbled vinyl with a big fat middle finger etched into side D.

Both albums are limited to 500 hand-numbered copies

OVERKILL has tapped PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren to mix the band's new album.

OVERKILL bassist D.D. Verni has been locked in the studio putting together what will be the band's 25th anniversary release. The group is still talking with different labels, but plans are to make the new CD available in early 2010.

Since 2010 is the 25th anniversary of the release of the debut OVERKILL album, "Feel The Fire", there are lots of plans for next year, including U.S. and European tours.

OVERKILL's second DVD, "Live at Wacken Open Air 2007", came out in February 2008 via Bodog Music. The 50-minute disc was shot during the band's headline set at the festival in front of an audience of 40,000, and features songs that span OVERKILL's 28-year career, including "Walk Through Fire" from the group's latest disc "Immortalis", "Rotten to the Core", "Elimination", "Fuck You", "In Union We Stand", "Necroshine", "Skull and Bones", "Old School" and "Wrecking Crew".
