This is awesome news! Jason Bittner, who is well known from his years behind the kit with Stigmata, Shadows Fall and Voivod, has officially joined Overkill!
Here’s what Jason said on his new venture: “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 can not wait to get out on the road and wreck stages across the world with the ‘Mean Green Killing Machine!”
Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth added, “Overkill would like to announce it’s 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 spoke for themselves. Let the touring continue…onward-upward!”
Congrats to Jason on the new gig! Now bring on some new tour dates!
