OVERKILL: Our Old Record Label Is Trying To Steal From Our Fans

OVERKILL have released an official statement regarding the plans by the group's former label, SPV/Steamhammer Records, to issue a "best of" two-CD set entitled Hello From The Gutter — Best Of later this month. The band's statement reads as follows:

"OVERKILL's old label SPV is trying to release a compilation album in July that you may have heard of. Currently our attorneys are reviewing contracts in an effort to block the release. It is NOT authorized by the band, nor did the band have ANY communication with the label as to its content, cover, release etc. It contains absolutely NO new material. Everything on it is pulled off past releases. So don't be fooled by deceptive marketing. This is NOT a new release!! Save your money for the new DVD or buy Wrecking Everything—Live. This is just typical record label tactics to steal from fans."
