> > > Jason Bittner joined Overkill

Thrash Metal legends have brand new engine!

After realising their eighteenth LP “The Grinding Wheel”, New Jersey Thrashers have even more great news for their fans! Their new drummer is now officialy Jason “Sticks” Bittner! He is known for his work with such acts as Shadows Fall and Flotsam and Jetsam, and he is a realbeast behind the drum kit. Here you can read the band’s statement:

“OVERKILL would like to announce it’s newest member, behind the kit and steering the ship, Jason “Sticks” Bittner,” comments Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth. “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!”


Jason is really stoked, here are his words: “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!'”

We saw Jason in action last year during Drum Fest in Opole, Poland, and we are pretty sure, that he will handle it like a pro!
