Overkill brings their tour to Sayreville and for this one they will not only be joined by Nile, but also by the mighty Amorphis and Swallow The Sun. Local talent will start the night off early so be prompt to not miss a second.

Due to inclement weather conditions this show was originally postponed but now has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. Refunds are available at point of purchase. 🙁
