Overkill - Bassist Releasing Debut Solo Album

Overkill songwriter and bassist DD Verni will be releasing his long awaited debut album worldwide through Mighty Music. The release date of the album is set for October 2018 and touring in both the U.S. and Europe is currently being booked.

"There's some metal, punk, classic rock... it's all in there, from Queen to Green Day to Metallica, I think we covered all the basses!", declares D.D. Verni.

D.D. Verni's first effort has a host of guitar players doing guest spots on the record. Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy), Angus Clark (Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Jeff Waters (Annihilator), Bruce Franklin (Trouble), Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), Steve Leonard (Almost Queen), and Andre Karkos "Virus" (Dope) who also contributed the rhythm guitar tracks. Rounding out the group is former Overkill drummer Ron Lipnicki. The record was mixed and mastered by Chris "Zuess" Harris (Rob Zombie, Queensrÿche, Hatebreed).

The first single "Fire Up" features guitarist Mike Orlando. D.D. Verni states "I'm psyched to get this disc out, we had a lot of fun and a lot of great players contributed."

In addition to 18 Overkill full length releases, Verni has 4 releases with his side band The Bronx Casket Co. D.D. Verni continues: "So why do a solo record...well I never really stop writing material, and after some time it starts to pile up and take shape and I wonder what it will be. In the past anything that was not Overkill material I would put aside for my other band The Bronx Casket Co, but when I starting pulling these songs together it was clearly not that, and I thought, OK I guess it's a solo record. The material was kinda Metal and kinda Rock and kinda Punk, so those really are my basic influences."
