Dan Lilker, one of the most active, productive and all-around authoritative figures in the metal underground is retiring. This has been widely documented from the side of Brutal Truth. On 19 August 2014, Dan Lilker produced a statement regarding the future of his other major band, Nuclear Assault.
Nuclear Assault were formed in 1984. They have been serving hot as hell thrash metal with each release and spawning massive mosh-pits with each live appearance. Dan Lilker is a founding member of the band so his imminent retirement affects them too. Shedding light on the matter, Lilker stated:
“In 2015, it will be 30 years since Nuclear Assault solidified our lineup and started making a name for ourselves in the metal/crossover scene. To commemorate this, the band will write and record another album and play some shows for a “Final Assault”. The live front will be of a limited nature due to the reality of people in the band having careers that they can’t just walk away from for the time needed to go tour the world like we did in the 80s. Nevertheless we will try to do whatever we can, especially in the summer, to get out there and thrash for everyone again. Progress on writing music will not go quickly due to a couple of facts; we are geographically challenged so we can’t just jam once a week like we used to, and we want to make sure that this album is really killer so we can go out with a big bang.
That’s all for now, stay tuned and more info on shows will be forthcoming at the appropriate time.
