Overkill welcomes Jason Bittner as new drummer

Posted by AP on 07/05/17

New Jersey thrashers Overkill have welcomed Jason ‘Sticks’ Bittner as their new drummer, offering the following statement about his addition:

OVERKILL would like to announce its newest member, behind the kit and steering the ship, Jason ‘Sticks’ Bittner. We wholeheartedly would like to thank Eddy ‘The Mexicutioner’ Garcia for holding down the ship and keeping the momentum up for the band over this past year plus. Eddy has and always will be part of the OVERKILL machine. Jason is a long-time friend of the band and his abilities have always spoken for themselves.  Let the touring continue... onward-upwards!

Bittner himself commented:

When my phone rang about 2 months ago and Blitz said 'Hey, me and DD are wondering if you would be interested in joining?' It really didn't take much for me to write back a one word answer… ABSOLUTELY! I am extremely excited to be a part, once again, of thrash metal history, and I cannot wait to get out on the road and wreck stages across the world with the 'Mean Green Killing Machine!'

Danish fans can look forward to experiencing Bittner’s drumming prowess at this summer’s Copenhell festival, where Overkill is scheduled to play on the Hades stage at 20:15 on Saturday, June 24th.
