Overkill has released the lyric video for the second single from its new album.

The band debuted the video for the song ‘Head of a Pin‘ on Friday.  The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming album The Wings of War. Front man Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth said in an interview, that this song took some time to go from concept to creation.

“‘Head of a Pin’ took a long time to come together,” Ellsworth said.  “It is probably the tune that went through the most changes, and the last one I finished.  Looking back on its development, the time invested was well worth it.  the tonality of the guitar shines on it, and the song goes “other places,” traditional with a touch of the down-low-dirty riff, and a sing-along chorus…personally one of my favorites of The Wings of War.”

The video’s premiere comes more than a month after the band debuted the album’s lead single ‘Last Man Standing‘ and less than a month after the band debuted the first two videos in its new ‘Welcome To The Garden State’ documentary series.

The series’ first video, streaming here, features Overkill’s members talking about the band’s name and how it came together.  Its second video features the band members their own early influences and Overkill’s place in the industry.
