Sad news for the Overkill fans in the US. Unfortunately, the band was forced to cancel the remaining shows on the Dark Roots Of Thrash Tour in February due to an illness in the band. Vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth is suffering from pneumonia. However, Overkill promise that after some time for recovery they will be back out in the spring for their Northern European tour.

The band had to cancel two of the last three shows on the tour after the band's lead singer was diagnosed with what is called "walking pneumonia".

Brief statement from the band: "Due to Bobby's ongoing bout with pneumonia, we have regretfully decided to cancel the remainder of our shows on The Dark Roots Of Thrash tour. Blitz's condition has gotten slightly worse [after Saturday's show in Worcester, Massachusetts] and he needs some time to get back to 100%. We would like to thank Testament for a great tour and look forward to everyone back on the road soon. After some time for recovery, we'll be back out in the spring for our Scandinavian tour. See you then!"
