Since that time, Astley has periodically released new music and albums, including last year's 50, which he's touring behind at the Electric Factory this month.

Overkill

What's more romantic than watching New Jersey's most enduring thrash metal band on Valentine's Day? These veterans of the genre take the stage days after dropping The Grinding Wheel, their 18th album. With the help of Chaly, Overkill has also released three EPs, three live albums and a record of covers. That's love.
